That's it.
Yarn used: Silja (80%wool superwash,20%nylon,50g skein/150m, 26stitches=10cm)from ASA Gjestal Spinneri, colour 312. Knitted on 2.5mm DPNs, top down.
2 pattern repeats for the leg, 2.5 for the foot/instep. Hopefully they will fit my niece.
One change done though: I ran out of yarn...when I had only 9 rows to go on the toe of the first sock....so I ripped it from the ribbing(That does not work well-LOL), and ended up with a ribbing that is 11 rows instead of 18. I also think that I might have done "wrong" on the Mp...I purled into the front of the strand, with a twist(impossible to explain-but it worked and was pretty easy to do)
I am very pleased with the pattern, and will make a pair for myself too as soon as I get some yarn!
Thanks, Anniken.
just wanted to say that I am really looking forward to June's pattern:-)

Those look great. I like these in a solid yarn and I really like the green.
