Varikynia / Crayons

Lahjasneakerit on valmiit:



Jos kuvan kilkkaa isommaksi, nakee nuo varit paremmin. Varin nimi on siis Crayons, ja langasta todella tulee mieleen ne lasten paksut liidut, joilla saa rumaa jalkea aikaiseksi, jos ne ja kaasupullon kokoiset jattaa keskenaan liian pitkaksi aikaa. Varsinkin tuo keltainen osuus on just sellainen "aiti, katso mita mie osasin piirtaa [tapettiin]" -vari. En tieda, onko sen tarkoituskin olla noin epatasainen ja pilkullinen, koska muissa saman langan vareissa kukin osuus on selvarajainen eika pilkkuja juuri ole ollut. Silti tuo keltainen erityisesti on oikein hauskan nakoinen.

Kera meni justiinsa: laskin, etta yhdessa 50 g:n kerassa on kaikkiaan n. 28-29 kokonaista raitaa, ja kuvastakin nakee etta naihin meni noin 28 raitaa. Lankaa ei tosiaan jaanyt kuin ne raitojen kohdistamisesta jaaneet pienet patkat. Siksi kantapaatkin on erivariset ;) Kantapaat on tehty sadekavennuksilla, enka ollut niihin ihan tyytyvainen, mutta taytyy kehitella kantapaita vahan eteenpain niin niista tulee kivemmat. Kaikkiaan nama sukat on ihan natit. (Kun vaan loytys se toinenkin kera, voisin tehda isselllekkin!)


The crayon sneakers are finished:



If you click on the pic, you'll get a bigger picture and the colors show better. The color is called Crayons, and the colors really remind you of the pencils kids use to brighten your day (and wallpaper) if you leave those two alone for too long. I'm not sure if especially the yellow part is supposed to be so spotted, because in all the other balls I've used of this same yarn the colors were very solid and spots were hardly found. However, the yellow part is my favorite, because of the crayon effect, it brings back memories :)

I used all of the yarn in one ball. I counted that there's roughly 28 or 29 whole stripe sections of yarn in one ball and if you look at the picture, you'll notice that there's 28 of them in both socks (14 in each). The only yarn I had left was what I had to cut out when making the stripes match. This is why the heels are of different colors, too :) The heels are afterthought heels with sectional decreases, and I'm not entirely happy with them, but I guess a little R&D is in place and they will be neater. I do like these socks, however, I think they're rather pretty. (If only I could find the second ball, I could make myself a pair!)
