Sockdown march

Jeg har meldt mig til et lille sokke projekt på Ravelry, hvor jeg skal strikke et par sokker enten i nerverkont, eller af designeren Ann Budd, jeg valgte Ann.

Strømpen er stadig undervejs, det udgår ikke tydeligt af billedet at der her er tale om både snoninger og hulmønster. Farven er heller ikke tydelig nok, strømpen er mere karry gul, end der her vises.

I have signd on to a sock down projekt on Ravelry, where I could chose between a entralack or a Ann Budd patteren. I chose Ann.

Im still knitting on the first sock, its not easy to se on the picture, but it got it all, cables and lacepattern. The collour is also a bit wron, its more a curry yellow.
