Aravis83 sent me a copy of “The Little Prince” in German, and a ball of matching sock yarn! The yarn is called “Der Kleine Prinz und der Brunnen” (The Little Prince and the well) and it’s a delicious mix of yellow, orange, pink, purple, and aqua. I don’t usually knit with multicolored yarn but now I see why people like it -- it is such fun to watch the colors changing as I knit!
Socks on 60 stitches. 10 rounds of k1p1 twisted rib, then k9 p1 around. (I like to be able to count something while I knit. Heh.)
60 rounds, then heel on 30 st for 17 ridges.
Decrease gusset every other round. Here’s a great trick to avoid a hole at the corner of the gusset!
Foot: 70 rounds, then make a toe (dec EOR till there are 24 st)
This yarn is REALLY nice to work with and it feels great!
