Gray Socks

Guest post by Peter.

On the last few trips, I sometimes bought wool as souvenir. As my good ol' military socks (from 1993...) have more and more holes, I use the wool to knit socks. This is the first pair, with a second one to follow soon. They are an almost ideal pastime for my frequent train rides. The pattern is pretty standard, and I got a lot of help from Marlise and eliZZZa.

Keep Calm And Knit On

I have been collecting these colorful 70ies (?) plastic double pointed needle sets in thrift stores over the last few weeks. They make cool home dec but I will also use them for my next socks of course.
