Notes

Zitron Trekking Handart Colombo (75% wool/25%polyamide nylon/100 g/420 m) and Drops Alpaca (100% Alpaca/50 g/180m). Toe-up (Magic Cast-on technique by Judy Becker). Short Row Heel. One Skein Zitron Trekking together with 2 skeins of Drops Alpaca is enough is enough to make one pair. One thread from both types of wool are knitted together.

Had my two favorite models with me this morning. So, I put them in some socks and took them outside to take some pictures. I asked them to lift their pyjama pants to get a good view of the socks. Guess who had the best view? Right. I did not plan this scene. It just happened, like it did. When I was uploading the pictures, I saw the stupid grinning gnome that somehow got in the picture. They always seem to show up at the right time, at the right place, don’t they, these little fellows?
