– 145 – ‘Siv’ socks

Have you come across ‘Laine‘ magazine yet?  If you haven’t, click on the link and have a look, it’s full of beautiful photography and great wearable patterns.


Siv is the 2nd pattern I’v knitted from issue 1 and it’s fabulous despite the fact I’ve suffered from a very severe case of 2nd sock syndrome which has caused me guilt trips galore and months went by between socks.  Many months.  Shame on me.


The cabling is not perfect.  I’ve had to learn a lot of new technique and stitches… twice, actually, because by the time I got to the 2nd socks my mind had forgotten it all.  My fault.


The yarn is Plucky knitter Primo… don’t ask me the colour way though.. I’ve lost the band.  (Thank you Kristina!)

2.25mm needles because I knit very loosely and always need smaller needles than the recommended size.

What else can I say… they were a pleasure to knit and they’ll be a pleasure to wear.  My son asked me what’s the point to have a pattern down the foot that will be hidden by the shoes.  I told him I’ll wear them with sandals all winter.  It might be worth doing just to see his face!
