Knitted Christmas Presents #2
Two pairs of socks were gifted away this Christmas.
These are the fabulous Gentleman's Shooting Stockings by Nancy Bush made for my father. I really like the stitch pattern which makes the socks a bit more sophisticated than regular, plain men's socks.
The yarn is soft like a dream (contains silk) so I'll definately use it again.
Pattern: Gentleman's Shooting Stockings with Fluted Pattern by Nancy Bush from Knitting Vintage Socks
Yarn: Regia Silk 4-ply by Schachenmayr nomotta
Needles: 2 mm
The second pair are these striped socks, almost knee length, for my niece. She's 5 years old so I thought she would like these color tones.
Yarn: Ranco Multy by Araucania and some gray sock yarn from my stash.
Needles: 2,5 mm
