One finished "WIP"

09 August 2006

Finished... socks for "Young Knitter".

Yarn: Lana Grossa Meilenweit "Fun & Stripes" Fabre #631
Needles: 2.5mm bamboo DPNs
Pattern: My basic sock pattern, based on YK's foot (and some trial & error). There is some shaping down the back of the leg too

Thoughts: These were fun and relatively quick to knit. The stripes weren't as "crisp" as I'd thought they'd be due to the random "dark splotches" (which is the intended pattern of the yarn, but wasn't immediately obvious by looking at the original ball). The colours very nearly matched up... I was only out, at the end, by a length of about 5cm (I must have cast one on tighter than the other?)
