WIP :: Route 66 socks
The kids are feeling better and are off to school today, except Endre who has the day off today. So we're heading out in a minute to shovel some snow. The weather is strange at the moment. Yesterday we had -22C, today we woke uo to -5C and now it's down at -15C. During the night there has come 5 cm of fresh snow and it's supposed to rain by the end of the week... I wish it would stay around -5C, that's the perfect winter weather. Not too cold and the kids don't get soaking wet when the play in the snow.
Enough about that and on to the knitting.
I started a pair of mittens this weekend, but it seems like I will run out of yarn... It's a bit of gambling using up those small amount of leftovers in ones stash. So I have put the mittens aside until I figure out what to do with them. I might be lucky and find some more of the same yarn in my stash, but I doubt it. So I guess I'll frog them.
So instead I casted on a pair of socks. Hopefully I will have enough with 50 g of each colours. The pattern is Route 66 and I have the German book, so there has been a bit challenging ;)
