Longing for Gotland
These socks are inspired by old Gotlandic socks with roses and leaves in stranded knitting.
I knit them on small needles to get them durable and strong and to be able to knit more roses around the leg.
I´ve been longing for Gotland ever since I first visited the island 30 years ago. This year, we are moving to Gotland, the island of roses and fairytales in the Baltic sea. While I’m waiting and longing I knit in my love for Gotland in my socks.
