Finished Bayerische socks alert!


Yes I finished the Bayerische socks in the beginning of the week, washed them and blocked them. And here they are! It has been a time consuming project, mostly because my inability to memorize chart D, but also because all the cabling and the twisted stitches, one has to pay close attention to what one is doing. But it has been well worth it.

The free pattern by Eunny Jang is well written, and has the most beautiful heel I've even knitted. First, the cables and travelling stitches are all going down in the striping of the heel, it's a beautiful continuum, second the heel in itself. I'm not a big fan of the short row heel, even if I'm perfectly able to make beautiful such, for me is the heel flap/gusset heel the favourite. And Eunny's version of the heel ( Click for close up! ) is the smoothest and best fitting I've ever made.

Project details:
Pattern: Bayerische socks by Eunny Jang
Yarn: Regia Silk in cream (002), about 110 grams.
Needles: 2 mm metal dpns.
More: I made four pattern repeats in the leg part and four and a half in the foot part of the sock.

In order to celebrate being close to the finishing line, and again, when passing the finishing line I did cast on for two new projects. They are both stash empting projects, these and 300 grams more before I can allow myself to order yarn for Eunny's Venezia sweater. First up is Sharfik by Grumperina. The yarn is Jaeger Extrafine Merino dk knit on 4 mm needles. This will be a birthday present for my father, not a father's days present as I first did plan. The time is running out for that (I promise I'll show you the time hog at some other occasion, but it's not a knitting project). I have three balls of the yarn and here is the second ball almost knitted up. This has been my commuter project, and is thus not advancing very fast.


Number two on the list is Fifi, a triangular shawl designed by Johanna Pajakoski for the Finnish webknitmagazine Ulla. I had two balls of Rowan Linen Drape in this pale lilac colour left, enough for a small shawl thing for my younger daughter. I have knitted the first ball (if one can call the things for balls when they are winded up around the paper things), and has started the second, using 3,5 mm needles. This should be finished soon!


And a last thing for this entry: Have you seen these lovely socks by Teresa? As one commenter said: Oh, my paws and whiskers!

Your socks look great! White is a great choice of colour for the pattern :-) They remind me of snowfall and winter.

Beautiful socks!

those bayerische socks are b e a u t i f u l ! i have only knitted one pattern repeat. it is, like you said, very time consuming.

That is one of the prettiest pairs of socks I've ever seen! I can only imagine how soft they are with the Regia Silk. Beautiful job!

Those are such beautiful cream socks! Seems like you started them just yesterday. :-)

Stunning Bayerische socks! Just be a bit careful washing them - my Regia Silk socks shrank a bit but I think my husband probably washed them at too high a temperature!

Beautiful socks! I look forward to seeing the completed lilac shawl :)

Jättesnygga sockor. Mönstret kommer nog bäst till sin rätt i en ljus färg. Nå, det är bara för mig att gå till garnbutiken. Eunny är en superdesigner, alla små avgörande detaljer har hon beaktat.

Your socks are amazingly beautiful! I have the pattern on my computer's memory, just need some time to knit!

Wonderfully beautiful socks! I'm only starting them.

Beautiful socks! They look so nice in cream.

your socks are beautiful! I was wondering how I could translate that web site that you got that shawl pattern from,I really like a pair of those lace socks I saw..

Beautiful socks!! I'm so inspired when I come to your blog.

What a fabulous job on Eunny's socks. I already decided I'm going to knit those. They are stunning. Do you love the yarn you used?

Oj, nu är hon inne här och njuter, igen... Dessaa är ju bara så underbara, dreglar... Undrar när man får koll på läget och får ett par tillverkade själv? ;) Du är mästerstickerska, på ackord tror jag tom, ;)
Må så gott... värmländskan... kramis och ta det nu lugnt i stickandet, lova... vi vill ikapp, hihihi

Gorgeous socks!!!

Gorgeous socks, simply beautiful. Love your other knits in progress too.

Moimoimoimoi :) KIITOS ihanista paketeista!! Kirja on mainio, minulla ei ole sitä ennestään, ja sujuvasti luen neulejutut myös englanniksi ja tykkään virkata. Noi baijerilaiset sukat on _upeat_!!

So beautiful socks!!

Your Bayerisches are absolutely gorgeous! I love how well the stitch pattern shows up in the white yarn. What an amazingly good job you did! These socks have been on my to-knit list ever since Eunny posted the pattern. Now I really want to knit myself a pair. :)
Thank you too for the link to the Whiskers and Pawprints socks...that's another pattern I will be eager to try. :)

Beautiful! Did you need a 3rd ball of the Regia Silk for these? I have 2 balls and was thinking I might use it for these, but it sounds like I might need more, right?

The socks are beautiful. You should be very proud. Good job!

Gorgeous socks! They are my next to knit, absolutely!

Those are beautiful socks! I definitely want to make them too.

I am hooked on my pair also (although I say pair - I am only part way through the first one).....lovely pattern and yours look divine.
