These socks didn’t quite end up the way I wanted, but I knitted them for this contest so I’ll submit them anyway.
The yarn is Stoff & Stil Steady in the colour Multi. I bought 1 50 gr ball and I figured that since long socks in my size require 30 gr of sock yarn each and ankle socks are 20 gr each, 50 gr would be enough for 2 short socks. Well, that’s not how it works, I ran out of yarn. Luckily I had a leftover bit of yarn that just about matched (I think from Aldi’s) . When I was nearly finished I found out that I made a counting mistake and that the solid coloured part starts a few rows earlier in one sock than in the other.
This is was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my mother but I’m thinking about keeping them for myself and knitting a new pair for her. I’m pretty sure she won’t mind, she’s my mum, she likes everything I make for her, but I feel I can do better. They are warm and comfortable though and that’s the most important part.
