Kalajoki Socks

I knit a pair of socks! Just because I bought some very pretty sock yarn.



The pattern is Kalajoki by Tiina Seppälä. And the yarn is Regia Hand-Dyed Effect.

That top picture shows the pattern better but the colours are truer in this one:



It's the first time I've knitted a pair of socks that have to be worn on the correct feet. A bit complicated at getting-dressed time but I think it's worth it for the way they look.

  2. I love that yarn! I have yarn I bought specifically for Kalajoki, but it's not nearly so gorgeous, lol.

  3. Thanks Bronwyn! I saw the yarn when I was in Germany with my mum a couple of years ago, but didn't have enough cash/bag space to bring it back (it was only an overnight trip so I only had a rucksack). When I saw it again closer to home I had to get some. :)
