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!
