Socks. Again.


I assumed the Beatrix socks would be easy to knit on the go as there is only a pattern in the back of the leg. Not entirely true. The pattern is not hard to follow, but is worked over 29 stitches, without any obvious repeating. So I had to pay attention to my knitting while doing the pattern, not always easy with a demanding toddler and two teens around. But the result is still neat. The used yarn is 'September' of Fyberspates, 50% merino and 50% tencel. Needle size 2.5 mm.


And these sock are also made during the holiday with leftover BFL sock yarn. Little Victorian Lace socks.

Thank you all for the kind comments.
@ yvonnep: the Apple Harvest is one of the printed patterns here, meaning: on my 'to do' list.
@ Darcy: the little Victorians are Dorrit's indeed.
