Kalajoki socks

Seems like the summer of 2013 is a summer of socks for me. No, I'm not participating in any KAL, but it seems socks are all I knit.


This pair of gorgeously turqoise socks was finished a while back. Let me tell you more:


The pattern is called Kalajoki, which translates to "Fish River", and it is indeed a river in Western Finland. It's very "curvy", so the socks sport a similar, very cleverly made and stunning looking, pattern.


The yarn I used was 7 Veljestä in that gorgeous turcoise colour! And I knit the socks on for 4mm dpns.


The pattern is really brilliant, but I think I should have knitted them with 3,5mm needles and made a longer ribbing to start with, as the tend to slide down all the time. Great sofa socks, but I was hoping to use them outside the house, too. We'll see, perhaps after the first wash they'll behave better!
