Snowflake Socks

Snowflake socks
women's size 9
February 2018
Last week was bitter cold (daily highs were in the single digits with subzero windchill), so I hunkered down and did a lot of knitting and sewing. This pair of socks was finished in two days - a record for me - as I listened to A Man Named Ove by Fredrik Backman. If you haven't read the book, I highly recommend it. You will laugh out loud at some of Ove's observations and actions, and shed a tear or two as well.

Yarn: REGIA - Snowflake Color (#07708 - Ski Cap)
          75% superwash wool 25% polyamid

Needles:  US size 2

This yarn was a delight to knit, and I wish I had purchased another skein in a different color.

  5. Nice socks! We're expecting another dumping of snow today. I'm hoping it will be the last for the year, but probably not!

  6. LOVE the socks - they are great! Ove was my favorite book of last year. The movie is pretty good too (from someone who is not really a "movie person").

  8. I love Regia. That is a great colorway that I haven't seen before. Ove was a great listen. I've yet to come across another book I liked so much.

  9. Two days! That’s great! Dennis’ socks are taking me forever because I only work on them away from home. I may have to break that rule and start knitting on them here too.
    Blessings, Betsy

  13. I do need to read or listen to that book. Everyone loves it. I listened to Beartown, by the same author, and it is very good.
