Check these babies out!
These socks were a ton of fun to knit. They kept my interest as I knitted my way through color changes and different textures. The red is “brickwork”, the grey stripes remind me of the siding on the house, and the light grey cable might be the gingerbread details on the cupola… (if you navigate to the Ravelry pattern for these socks you can see pictures of the house). The heels are Norwegian short row heels, which were new to me, but easy and fun to do. The best part of these socks?
I have lots of yarn left over from the socks, and I’m already thinking that I should whip out some matching arm warmers using these colors and textures. But first, I have a few sweaters to get finished.
Have a nice rest-of-the weekend, everyone. I’m off to do some knitting on my Nordiska sweater.

Your socks are fantastic!! They are perfect with your clogs:)
They make my fun clogs even more fun! Now I need to think about my navy and tan pair…
What a fun pair of socks! Very cool.
All of the colors were in the stash too! So glad the grays worked out. 🙂
Great socks! The Nordiska sweater looks very cool. I look forward to seeing yours.
The best socks ever! Love them, with and without the cute slippers. 🙂
Thank you! Today it is cold and raining and I’m just rocking the new socks thinking of matching armwarmers. 🙂
I love them! The textures and changes in color…looks like a fun knit!
I wanted to make the socks because of the colors, but once I got the pattern it was the textures that really made the socks. Perfect little knit project.
Your socks look great! It looks like an interesting knit, and comfy to wear as well!
Thanks. They are very comfy!
