An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I've finished knitting the pair of socks I was asked to make for a friend. The wool is apparently quite old. Each ball comes separately wrapped in a printed plastic bag! The pattern I used is bintje by Jatta Saukko, available as a free download on Ravelry. The original pair is knee length, with a clever way of decreasing in the purl sections between the lace panels, so I had to read it carefully when adapting the pattern to make ankle socks.
