I had my doubts about having enough yarn. And I were right, the light blue ran out a little earlier than I had hoped so I had to make the toes dark blue, but I'm ok with that. If I had known it I would hve mde the ribbing dark blue as well to get them to match a bit more. But I don't bother to rip and do it over - that part is under my jeans anyway ;)

Do you see the similarity?
The other sock is a pair Erlend got a few years ago from one of Hubby's aunts. Knitted in heavier yarn in a pattern we call "Senjalester". Senja is Norway's second largest island and is just a 15 minutes drive from here. I guess a lady from Senja at some point several years ago started knitting socks with this pattern and then they just got named "Senjalester". "Lester" means socks as in thicker wool socks. Here is a few on Ravelry :)
The pattern has been used for mittens as well. It's fun to see how patterns travel and changes on the way.
Noticed the snowy socks in the second photo?
Well, this is our weather today - in one of the moments of calm weather. I took a couple of photos and then a gust of blowing snow came and covered the socks... Great for drying my laundry though ;)
