my last finished project from 2010 are the lozenge socks! i begun this project in 2007, but wasn’t satisfied with it (turned out too tight) and it’s been hanging around my wip’s for a looong time. i decided to do some frogging and then re-knitting with larger sized needles. they’re still too tight around the calf for me, but they fit stefan!
pattern: gentleman’s socks with lozenge pattern from knitting vintage socks
design: nancy bush, modification of vintage pattern from 1895
yarn: baby og hosegarn from løve garn
yarn source: nysta
needles: 2,5 mm
finished: december 2010
i really liked knitting these socks, they were a quick knit despite the 2,5 mm needles. the pattern is really easy to follow, i had no problem with it at all. i look forward to knitting another pair from the book, there are so many lovely socks in it.
i’m very satisfied with these socks and stefan really likes them too. a successful project! the only down side is the yarn. it’s not very nice to knit with at all. but the knitted up fabric is quite nice. however, i will not add any more of this yarn to my stash.
