Socks and socks

The Wendelin socks are done! I managed to get M to model them, despite the heatwave (27 °C)

Pattern: Wendelin socks
Yarn: Regia Mini Ringel Color in 5211.
Needle: Addi Turbo 2,5 mm Magic loop
Made for: FIL
Verdict: Me like! A perfect pattern for the pretty stripes and the fact that I'm not entirely sure of the recipient's foot size.

These count for both Summer of Socks and Sock-a-Month KAL 4!

H saw when I was ordering yarn from The Loopy Ewe last week. She got very interested in all the pretty yarns and wanted me to knit socks for her. Sure, no problem. She chose Claudia Handpainted in Carousel, a fun yarn with lots of colours.

The yarn arrived super quick so I started her socks on Wednesday. Thursday morning they looked like this:

Now I'm halfway up the leg already. Of course it helps when the foot is only 6" around and 6" long :-) She wants knee-socks, we'll see how far the yarn goes (I only got one 50g skein)
The pattern is my own: magic cast-on, Sherman heel, ribs along the sides of the leg.

I have also started on the Loopy Ewe sock club sock for August. No pics or descriptions today, I don't know if everyone has got their packages yet as mine arrived so fast this time. Anyway, I love the yarn and the pattern so I *had* to cast-on now, even though I have a few (ahem) other projects OTN.
