Here we go, my long socks are on the needles. This was the first one, on the stage of starting the heel.



They are made soon, maybe at this weekend. And then I can start new socks...

Thanks. I usually use brighter colors but I also love that dark grey specially with socks. I have one sweater with similar grey, so they go well together.

Very Happy

Now needles are free again. Long socks are ready and finished.







Seems the needles arenīt free long as immediately when my mom saw them, she wanted similar...

No rest for the needles. Very Happy

Long socks number 2 (to mom):




Number 3 to sister:



Yarn is thicker with these ones. Not sure yet if I make socks or leg warners. If socks, I need to use other, thinner yarn for the heel and to foot and it may be a problem to find suitable one.



Quite simple fairisle pattern.

Looks very pretty. They would work well for leg warmers and may be more versatile that way, too.

Yes, I was thinking same and made them as leg warmers. My sister will get some socks too (from the box of socks I have).

Very Happy

Same size but different colors and yarn:





I use two different yarns, darker brown and this one in picture. I like this kind of yarn what changes itīs color:



Whatīs by English? Multi-color yarn maybe? Ball of wool is 150 g so no need to change the ball too often.

After those few long socks, itīs time for shorter ones.
