Socks, socks, socks...!

I can't help it. I love to knit socks. And as always, I'm trying to bring down my stash a bit and since I have a lot of sock yarn in my stash (how can that be?) I thought Moe should have another pair of socks. And I must say: he never was afraid of colours! He did say that he would prefer if I didn't include any baby pink or salmon coloured yarn in them. Since my stash isn't exactly full of yarn in those colours I said 'no probs' and began knitting :)

He likes them - and I like them on him :)

I did knit another pair of socks for myself as well. I gave the pattern Spring Forward another chance and finally things worked out the way I wanted them to - I tried the pattern some time ago and ended up frogging it. This time I used my craaaaazy coloured ShibuiSock yarn, which was probably somewhat over the top for this pattern. Still I'm quite pleased with the result.

A quick knit!

Hils Moe fra Norge og si at det var kjempefine sokker han har fått (igjen). Jeg likte godt fargene i stripene. Blir sokkene for små for han så er det bare å sende dem nordover!
