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!
Your socks are really beautiful and outside your house they would make brilliant Pilates- or Yoga or Workout-Socks. Turquoise is a color of strength and energy!
