FO Slipper Socks in Noro..
StickaMera's SockKlubb (Swedish sock KAL) have me in a grasp. I mean - check the members different socks (scroll a bit down!)- Garngamen is behind.. so now -Socks it is! And this was a true pleasure. The Noro Kuyreon Sock yarn is just fantastic. I heard some complaints, but it is true. It works well as a sockyarn. Thin but hard spun so it is strong. Long strands of almost even coloured that is joined with a bit thicker wool. It is perfect for this great pattern - done "almost" to the letter. If you know how to knit and move one stitch cable - it is so fun. If you don't this is not your pattern. But learn it - it is fab! I really enjoyed it. Now Im throwing myself on the sideways socks before starting on July's entry Pomatomus socks (which I have long wanted to knit). But these babies are not well travel companions, and Im boarding a lot of planes (US westcoast - Here I come! San Jose, Seattle and vicinity)... So not only will this website be closed for some weeks since uploading pic's is a costly endevour)...So I have to have some thick needles on the plane, wood, that passes security - and still gives me hours of lace-knitting on the plane. What about this lightweight yarn easy to pack. And - now here is some planning. If Im to knit in US, should I assume I should knit with freshly purchased yarn? Or... should I bring one UFO to accompaign me in the car? Hmm decisions decisions....Im thinking first and most on what knitting to pack than anything.
