Had this yarn in my stash for ages, so I think it is time to use it! Also, summer is the best time to use this dark yarn. Hope my nephew will like them. Will knit toe-up as I only want to use one ball of yarn and want to use all of it.

Knit with 2.5 mm needles for a change, currently plan to only do a stripe of 60 stitches at the front of the sock, we will see if I feel motivated enough for so many purls in the back when I come to it…

CO 10 stitches each for the toe, increased in every row to 20 stitches.

Hm… not so sure I will stick to the Bonbon pattern- this is A LOOOT of purls and I do not like the looser gauge… Will let it lie for a while…

Started again with 2.25 mm needles - much better!
Did only a stripe of 20 stitches on the front of the sock in pattern. Will probably not be a favourite of mine, but is good for counting.

sighs I am so not motivated… but nevertheless I knitted to 11 increases (of 16 to be) today…

June 6, 2021

Started heel turn and heel flap on sock 1

June 11, 2021

Started second sock. Will have to do 9 -10 pattern repeats before the heel.
