When I knitted my Nightingales my sister said that she want similar socks. So I decided to knit them for Christmas present. My sister likes looser socks than I so I decided to take bigger needles.

December 4th: I started with black Fabel and blue Delight. But the colours where both so dark so the pattern doesn’t stood out. So I had to go to local yarn shop to buy some other yarn.
Decmber 5th: I bought new yarn and now the sock is progressing well.
December 14th: I finished first sock and started second.
December 21st: I finished second sock just in time.

Challenges and KALs:

SSH13: Neulo kirjoneulesukat tai yksi suuri joulusukka, kirjoneuletta sekin. (Joulusukan ohje on ainakin Nancy Bushin kirjassa Knitting on the Road, mutta sellaisen voi varmasti myös improvisoida.)
