Finished: Little boys socks

Pattern: From the top my head, size 28
Yarn: ONline Supersocke 100, colorway 1391

Why I made this: These socks are second to last part of my Christmas gift card projects from 2011. They are for my two and half years old nephew. I had promised to make him socks from the start even bought the yarn over a year ago, I just didn't get around to them before now.

What I liked in this project: Easy and simple. The thing I particularly liked was the "knit two, purl one" rib. It's a proper cuff but looks almost like stockinette stitch when not stretched but was slightly more three dimensional.

What I didn't like in this project:  I pretty much liked everything in this project. The only think I was slightly bummed about was the slight discolorations in the yarn.

What I learned: To match stripes in a stripy yarn like this. I had never done that before.

Was I happy with the end result: These socks are so adorable! I don't think I have ever made socks more cute than these. And I've done plenty of socks. A big reason to this is the yearn. Supersocke 100 is a great sock yarn with many great colors, but this is definitely my all time favorite. I'll have to see if I can find more of it  so I can make socks for myself too.

Tein siskonpojalle toiveesta sukat kokoa 28. Mitään varsinaista ohjetta en käyttänyt, tein vaan omasta päästä. Helppo ja mukava projekti, jossa ehdottomasti parasta oli kuitenkin tuo fantastisen värinen lanka. Supersocke 100:a voi suositella lämpimästi kaikille ohuempien sukkien tekijöille!


  1. Ovatpa herttaiset! Värit niin sangen kivat. :)

    1. Mä oon niin myyty tuolle langalle. Pitää varmaan kokeilla, josko tuosta jämästä (= yli puoli kerää) saisi itselle askarrelluksi vaikka lyhytvartiset/varrettomat sukat...
