Spring Socks

The first time I flicked through the book Kauneimmat villasukat (Moreeni 2018) by Merja Ojanperä I instantly noticed the Sock Pattern Helmi-Orvokki and put it on my mental To Do -list. The Book is now also available in German (Bezaubernde Wollsocken: Mit Liebe gestrickt), French ( Magnifique chaussettes au tricot) and Swedish (Sticka underbara ullsockor I)

In stead of the white-grey combination of the original pattern I paired the white with a Grass Green. The White-Green makes me think of Spring, the Green waiting for longer days to emerge from under the snow.

As I usually do I made the foot part a little bit more narrow than in the original pattern to fit my small foot (My shoe size is 36). I am super happy with how these turned out.

For this project I used Aran yarn from Novita 7veljestä and the green yarn I found from the Adlibris Socki Collection. It goes by the name Grass Green. I used the Knitpro cubis 3,5 mm needles and ended up using 104 g of yarn in total.
