Onko tukka hyvin, näkyykö sukat?

Sockapaloozasukat on valmiit! Ja kuten kuvista näkyy, vaikka alla on uusi kapinallinen leikkikalu, eivät taidot eikä valo riitä tämän kummoisempiin tänään, joten huomenna lisänäppäisyjä :)

Speksit:
Lanka/ Yarn: KnitPicks Bare fingering weight (75% wool, 25% nylon).
Puikot/ Needles: 2 mm (#0), KnitPicks Options.
Ohje/ Pattern: Oma muokattu vähän/ My own modified slightly.

Lanka oli aika hirveätä neulottavaa, se on liian pehmeätä sukkiin ja halkeaa helposti. En varmaan sukiksi enää neuloisi, tykkään karkeammista sukkalangoista. Nämä tein kärjestä alkaen mutta holskukannalla, tuli kivat. Omaa ohjetta oli ihan lysti tikutella menemään :)



My Sockapalooza 4 socks are finished! I am very happy with them, I think they're pretty. And as you can see, even though I got the 10MP Canon Rebel to play with, neither my skills nor the light were enough for any better pics than these. Will post more tomorrow, then :)

I actually hated the yarn (which is the first ever KnitPicks yarn that I do not like), it is too soft and splits way too easily for my taste. I knit cables without a cable needle and splitting yarn made me nuts! I liked knitting my own pattern, though, and slight modifications made it even more fun. I knitted these from the toe up, but knitted my version of a Dutch Heel, and I think it complements the pattern even better than the original Afterthought Heel.

Edit: Tässä lisää kuvia. Parillani on paljon pienempi jalka kuin minulla, joten pistin toiseen sukkaan sisälle lankaa täytteeksi ja tein tuommoisen "käärmeen", että kuviot näkyy.


Edit: Here are a few (hopefully better) pictures. My pal has smaller feet than me, so to avoid stretching the socks but to show the cables, I stuffed one sock with yarn and created a snake :)

Hienot. :o) Tuommoiset kelttikuviot vaan kolahtavat aina meikäläiseen.

I love your socks and I'm sorry the yarn wasn't better behaved. What's your favorite sock yarn?

Hi my very talented sock pal, I ABSOLUTELY ADORE the socks you made for me! And the natural colour is just perfect for the style and pattern. I actually have been debating with myself whether to make the Austrian Socks from Favourite Socks ... since I am not sure about the cuff. Now, I have a unique pair of similar style without knitting! :D A huge thank you for everything in the package ... I love each and every one of them!
I am also really happy to know that you got your socks from your pal already. For this round of Sockapalooza, it has been a 100% satisfying experience ... all my pals got their socks and I got a stunning pair! I took photos of me wearing them (they look much more beautiful on the foot than lying flat ... but the photos are now stuck inside my camera, which suddenly went dead on me!) ... I'm hoping I would get to post them soon.
Once again, thank you very much.
Your blog will have one more reader subscription ... though I don't understand everything not in English ... hahaha ... but that doesn't matter, I read knitting blogs in all kinds of languages ....
