I was surprised by Andi from My sister's knitter with a gifted sock pattern: Bickersstraat. I love this pattern because it has the right amount of variation and mindless knitting together. So it never bored me, it knitted quite fast.
I'm really pleased with them, I knitted the cuff long enough and I think I will be wearing these as soon as it gets chilly again. I'd like to thank Andi for her generosity (and just for being such a great knitting friend anyway ;-) ) and I'd also like to thank Liesl for her gorgeous yarn that made its way from New Jersey to Belgium very fast! It was lovely to knit with and the color is great (I'm seeing a trend in my sock knitting with ochre/yellow yarns). Also thank you for launching such a great challenge, I've learned a lot and if you would have asked me two years ago to knit a pair of socks every month, I would have laughed so hard, ironically!
And you, dear readers and commenters and lurkers of the blog :-), thanks for visiting and saying such sweet words!
Yarn: Buckaloo View Fingering II, color: Osage Orange
