Birkenstocks + socks = SEXY!
Yeah Baby! You just can't resist can you? That lovely, delicate pink lace, paired with good German practicality! It's what every man dreams of ;)
So here they are, my very first pair of socks! The Simply Lovely Lace Socks from Interweave Spring 2006. What the heck took me so long? I put it off for a long time, because I just wasn't prepared to deal with the DPNs. I made a hat once long ago, and they just seemed to me to be some odd form of handicraft torture, and not like the usual relaxing experience that I usually expect my knitting to be. So I found me some tips on how to knit with 2 circs instead, and before I knew it I was cruisin! These were so fun and simple to make, and they're just so darn purdy, I can't help but be pleased with myself :) And they turned out just fine with some regular cotton yarn I had lying around, which seemed to me to be better suited for lacy summer socks. I can't wait to make another pair!
