So I cast on for a pair of socks for me. 🙂 Cannot be without socks on the needles, can I?
Anyway, while knitting on the last pair I thought this pattern would be really cute in two colours! Said and done. I picked black mystery wool and a variegated green merino from my stash (stashbustin’ baby!). I think it will be so cute!!!
I had to play around with the pattern stitch a bit, since the needles are smaller (knitting this on size US1’s instead of 4’s as the previous yarn called for) and the stitch-count is of course different because of it. But I wanted to use up this yarn for such a long time and I really rather like to knit socks on size 1’s.
At the moment the emerging pattern rather reminds me of a turtle shell for some reason…
Check it out LOL:
Cant wait to have them done! Simple slip stitch pattern! Fun to knit and fun to look at! Off to knit a bit more on them! At this point I’m not sure if they are going to be knee-highs or longer… I guess I will stop when I am sick of the pattern LOL we will see when that is…

DH saw it and thought they looked so cool. He was contemplating hijacking my socks LOL. I was lucky that the next pair he wants *need* to have skulls in them, or else these would have been charmed right off my feet 😀
(Thankfully my feet are much smaller then DH and they will not fit him anyway)
