Bayerische Socks

And they are finally done! My Bayerische Socks. I'm never taking these off!

I couldn't decide which photo to post here on the blog, so I just posted all of them. Enjoy.











While knitting these, I bent and twisted both my fingers and the needles in ways I didn't even know they could be bent. As much fun as these were to knit, I'm really glad that they're finished now and I don't need to knit on them anymore. I feel like I've accomplished something. :)

I didn't have any problems with the pattern once I got started. The charts and the instructions were very clear. They look insanely complicated, but they're really not. Just a lot of work and aching fingers.

The yarn is Sandnes "Lanett". Not exactly a sock yarn. It could probably get really fuzzy if the gauge wasn't so tight. Don't think I'll use it for socks in the future. I only wear socks at home on the couch, so they don't really need to be that durable, just comfortable. And these are definitely some comfy socks!

Superihqut! Luulen, että minun täytyy tehdä itselleni jossain vaiheessa valkoiset tai tällaiset vaaleat. Aivan ihana väri näissä ja kuvio on todellakin edukseen!

I'm with you on the achy fingers! I've only done 2 repeats and knitting both socks at the same time. I think I may have to put mine on hold for a while. (jiva)

They are beautiful, both the pattern and the craft :) But - not showing them outside your home! You have to! What about wearing them with a bikini ;D
No, seriously, they are to beautiful not to show off with!

Hei! Kauniita neuleita... Onkohan missään suomalaisia ohjeita noihin Baijerilaisiin sukkiin, on tuo englanti hieman heikko.
