Lots of photos!

Okay. It's been a long while. I'm going to share a few pairs of socks now. But first of all, a mystery sock! I remember I had a pattern for this one - a bit like Baudelaire (which I've made as well), but a different one. If somebody recognizes the pattern in question, please inform me! I think I had a copy of the pattern in Finnish, but I bet there are lots of patterns like this one around. This one has lace both in the front and on the back of the sock. The yarn is Araucania Ranco Multy. You can find more specs at Ravelry, where I'm known as knittitude - see you there!

This pair? Vinnland Socks, from theAntiCraft. The yarn is Sisu.

Trystero, by Cookie A, the yarn is Trekking.

I got Cookie A's Sock Innovation a week ago, and it's YUMMY! Kai-Mei, Araucania Ranco Solid. They're size L, so they are too loose for the model (me). Must make a pair for myself someday. The pattern is simple, yet clever.

One of my favourite designers, Nancy Bush. The pattern is Whitby from Knitting on the Road, the yarn is Gjestal Maija. I don't usually do yellow, but just take a look at the cooperation of the yarn and the pattern and you'll see why. Don't you now?

Nancy Bush's Unst from Knitting on the Road. The yarn is a cheap one (Corallo, 2€/skein) I bought from Anttila. The yarn is made in Italy for Anttila. I'd like to know which company it is that actually makes this yarn. I think the quality was OK for the price - some extra nylon strings had to be pulled out though.

Yarn as in previous. The pattern is Little Child's Sock in Shell Pattern, by (surprise surprise) Nancy Bush, from Knitting Vintage Socks.

Little Child's Sock by Nancy Bush from Knitting Vintage Socks, the yarn is again Sisu. The socks look a bit boring in the photo found in the book - but when worn, they fit like a dream! Must make another pair of these someday...

So that was it. There are so many things I should link to places... but I think you all know most of the patterns and yarns anyway - if not, Google or Ravel them. Please. Do check out Nancy Bush, Cookie A and theAntiCraft. They're fab! Next: Spinning...

Oh. And if you want to know more about the patterns/specs/yarns, visit me at Ravelry (knittitude). I've got the links over there!
