...my "really snowy here" socks...

Done! I bought the yarn last Tuesday, and cast on late that night, and they were done on Sunday. Quick and fun. Yarn: DSA sterk , 40%alpakka,40%merinowool,20%nylon. 50grams=137meters.

Needles: circular 3mm (magic loop, both at the same time) for the plain knitting, DPN's, 4mm,(one by one) for the colourwork.

Gauge: 22 sts=10cm for the fairisle, 26sts=10cm on 3mm for the foot. And they are still too small for me...

Really cute pattern, and the yarn is so soft!
I have a plan to knit both mittens and a hat to go with this, think it will be a great giftset.

Thanks again for a great pattern, Tama:-)

OOoooo! Very nice! You have to post your set when you finish it so I can see it. I love the "fur" background for the socks also! Very snowy and cold here also!

So pretty.
I am just about finished with my pair. Working on two circulars. No. 2 for ankle, No.1 for foot. Fit is perfect. Once I learned two handed stranding, working with colors became so much easier and less worry about the size being too small due to the yarns being carried in the back.
