I love these Norwegian designs. My favourite part is the stripy feet!
For the top border, I used a chart from Traditional Scandinavian Knitting by Sheila McGregor. It’s a fascinating book, which I read a lot of on Amazon ‘Look Inside’, then bought and have never managed to read the rest properly because I always get distracted and start knitting. One day, perhaps, it will get a post of its own…
For the other patterns, I slightly adapted some colour charts from this garn studio sock pattern (I couldn’t just use that pattern, in case you are wondering, because it’s in a different gauge).
I think that’s enough socks for the moment but I have two other colour work projects planned. Hopefully I’ll have at least a start to show by next week…
What have you been making lately?
If you have any yarn projects this week, I’d love you to link up with WOOL ON SUNDAYS. The rules as usual are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). Visit anyone else who links. Wishing you a happy week :)
