FO Friday

Hello Knitters.
 I have finished 2 projects over the past few weeks. Below is the first project. These socks were made with cotton yarn in four different colorways. I did not follow a pattern, just made plain socks. I randomly made the stripes. Weaving in all the ends was a bit tedious however getting a one of a kind pair of socks made it worth the work.

 I love how the socks match ( I am a bit OCD about matching) but they are different. The colors were perfect for spring weather! One set back, I had a tighter gauge for the second sock. However, I think with use they will loosen up. 

 Second project off the needles is the Kalajoki socks. I love this yarn as well. The colors are so bold. I also love the twist of the yarn and the feel. High twist yarn is my favorite but this yarn has such a nice look once knitted up. Very pretty and fun! Two more pairs for the sock drawer.
My son really wants another pair of socks. So I told him to try knitting.....
Enjoy your weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
