Knitted Vintage Socks


These are for my downstream partner in the Knitting Vintage Socks Swap. It was a nice pattern to knit, the Fancy Silk Socks. This was the first time I blocked socks, the sock blockers are made out of placemats by myself, very easy to do and cheap (sometimes I like to be cheap :)). I've also gathered some other nice goodies to send with the socks. Before the box goes overseas, I'll snap a photo of it.



And yesterday I started with the Magic Watermelon ball. I will knit a pair of mittens out of this, I am a bit concerned the yarn is not strong enough for a pair of socks. It easily snaps. In fact I don't wear gloves or mittens very often, but it has been cold here the last few weeks. Maybe we will have another cold period this winter and they might be very useful.

Can you see the cute sheep marker?

Beautiful socks and I like the sock blockers.
The yarn and glove I adore; lovely. It remembers me of a sweater with a big water melon my mum knit me when I was little.
