Yes, yes, finally, I’m doing socks in the Wollmeise!!
I lucked onto a Yarnissima
update (or two…) and having admired her amazing sock patterns for some time, thought I’d better avail myself of the opportunities presented to me! And the sock kits are presented so nicely (and they make awesome gifts
And the pattern – oh my – 13 pages, 6 different charts, many, many, many twisted stitches and cables and a very cool gusset construction.
I’m using the yarn dyed by the Wollmeise especially for the pattern
(but you can buy the pattern alone if you prefer) and I just love it. It’s variegated, which I usually steer away from for patterned socks, but in a very subtle way. It’s knitting up so nicely, I couldn’t be happier!
Well, I could be happier…if I could knit faster! Thank goodness every 5 or so rows of the chart are (relatively) easy (ie no cables!). And that I can cable without a cable needle (an essential skill for tackling this pattern I think!)
