February project: socks done




My cellphone is acting up. I had to use the scanner to show you the pair of socks I knit for me. Unfortunately the scanner is not big enough to scan the pair...
But still, they are done and I am happy with them.

To answer Kadezmom's question: You can feel the silver sparkles when knitting, but it does not itch on the feet. The silver is a bit rougher on your hands compared to the yarn.

I used: 2 balls of Fortissima Socka Disco Socka (210 meters each) and had left over: 50 meter in total. So 370 meters yarn used... That is 404 yards for this pair! Used needles: US 2 / 2.75 mm

Once again, beautiful job. I look forward to see what you're going to do next with some sock yarn and a few needles.
