Notes

I usually decide first pattern and buy then yarns to it. This time I got these yarns Christmas present and I had to find some pattern where these yarns fit. These socks were beautiful and I thought to try two-coloured knitting for a while.

September 1st: I started first sock.
September 2nd: I knitted heel to first sock.
September 3rd: I finished first sock.
September 4th: I started second sock.
September 5th: I knitted heel to second sock.
September 6th: I finished second sock.

Modifications:
I had only 60 stitches in these socks because with 64 stitches they would be too big for me.
I increased four stitches before two-coloured stripe in the cuff.

I think that these socks look even better than I waited. The cuff’s two coloured stripe isn’t very clear because red-coloured yarn change colour from dark to light in it. It’s the only thing, which I don’t like in these socks.
