As part of the Finished Object- friday I present you today a candy. Well, it’s not a candy in that you can bite. But this colorway is sweet as a candy, don’t you think?
Sometimes I need something easy to knit. A project that is not complicated with a simple but interesting stitch pattern. A project that you can take everywhere: meetups, while sitting in car, while waiting for the right conditions to fly, while enjoying the sun and so on. You understand what I mean.
For a simple pattern, a special skein works best. I saw that colorway and thought it would suit perfect for the pattern I had in my mind.
Pattern: Leyburn socks by MintyFresh (free pattern)
Yarn: Zauberwiese Sock yarn 4-ply, in “Freudensprenkel”
These socks are knitted toe-up with a short row heel. As usual I knitted them both at the same time. I suffer from the second- sock- syndrome. With this technique I want to get rid of this syndrom.
The textured, intriguing stitch pattern shows off the nature of the the yarn very well. I think, it works best for variegated yarn.
