You want to go Skiing, ya?

I do! I finished them, and blocked them! You gotta see this!



Pattern: Norwegian Stockings to Knit by Terri Shea

Yarn: Dalegarn Baby Ull

Needles: KP fixed circulars in size 2 and 1

Mods: I only knit the leg to 13.5" instead of 17", and changed to size 1 needles after the calf decreases for my itty bitty feet. I also made the foot short. (see note above about itty bitty feet).


Overall, I am very pleased! They were a lot of fun to knit, but not a good take along project. I never did memorize the chart. And, as it always does, the color work totally evened out and looks gorgeous after blocking.



I plan to have their first day out on Sunday. The ST. Patty's parade should be a good test. Lots of standing, it will be cold, and I'll get irritated if they don't stay up. And they're green! Perfect!!

Jag tycker mycket om att sticka strumpar. (I love to knit socks...in Swedish.)

As always I bow down to the Knitting Goddess.
