When in Germany during last Christmas holidays I stocked up on sock yarn (as shown in an earlier posting). I also bought Regia Galaxy, self striping yarn which will make little 'galaxies' in the sock; little rings of Jupiter so to say. It must be the coolest idea ever, this yarn!
First, I started a beautiful pair of Baudelaire socks a while back, and this weekend I did the first heel. It came out so sloppy and big, I had to rip back (I was already doing the leg when I decided the heel is just too bad) long to the foot part. What a drag, but I did it, and the sock is so much better now!
I can not believe these socks are finally ready! I despised, hated them in the beginning, but after I had turned the heel on the first one (after some months of hibernating and knitting one row per week), I started taking to them. After the first one was done, beautiful and fitting better than any sock before, I quickly did the second one (took maybe only a month...)
Monen kuukauden aherruksen jälkeen Jaywalkerit ovat viimein valmiit! Ja ihanat!
