More socks

Last year I decided that this year I would knit more socks. I really enjoy knitting socks; they are fast, new patterns are easily applied, and they are perfekt if you want to bring your knitting with you at all times. Last but not least: once you've gotten used to wearing homeknit socks, you have also reached a point of no return. I love my homeknit socks :) If you happen to know another equally perfect type of project, please let me know.

The green socks are Embossed Leaves Socks by Mona Schmidt in Shibui Sock. The yarn has seemed to be cursed, so I'm just very relieved that it has finally been turned into socks.

The crazy coloured socks are Cookie A.'s Lindsay. At first I wasn't sure if they would turn out to be the most hideous thing ever but I kept on knitting. And I love the result. The yarn is Regia Silk Color - so soft.

The light blue pair is Wanida by Cookie A. I managed to misunderstand one tiny bit of the pattern, and I only realized it when I had finished the first sock already. Oh well, I just made the other sock match the first - regardless of what the pattern dictated. I knit them with the Regia Cotton I got in one of the lovely Ravelry swaps :)

You may have noticed another pair of socks in the first picture - the plain, beige ones. It's a Christmas present. Not really that interesting.

Jeg er vild med de multifarvede sokker Karin - de lyser virkelig op i landskabet :)
