I think my sock knitting mojo is back :)

Tsunami

I haven't knitted socks for a long time. Well, a long time for me it is ;) From always knitting on a pair to not complete a single pair for weeks, it feels like a long time ago since I casted off a pair of socks. But it finally seems like the sock knitting mojo is back! I have casted on for two new pairs this week, so hopefully there will be some finished socks soon :)

Pattern: Tsunami by Judy Sumner, from the book Knitted socks east and west - a great book!
Yarn: 74 g Lana Grossa Meilenweit 100 Cotton Fantasy Colorway 814.
Needles: 2,5 mm.

It was a great pattern to memorise, and a fast knit when I just put my mind to it.  The pattern is made up of knit and purl st and a small cable.

  1. Pretty socks - and the yarn doesn't overpower the pattern :-)

  2. I really like your new header! The socks, of course, look perfect. I'm not a sock machine like you are, but I'm thinking that it's been way too long since I've knit any either.

  3. love the socks. I still have a sock on needles that I can't seem to finish. It's not difficult, I just have really bad knitting ADD :)

  4. LOVING the color. Will be looking up that yarn! That pattern is just pretty perfect for the color. It is not too busy, but has just enough going on.

  5. Så bra! Sokkene var lekre!
    Min sokkestrikkemojo bør få seg en aldri så liten puff - jeg skal tross alt strikke 52 par i år. Ligger godt an nå, ja, men det ER jo så mye anna kjekt å strikke!
