Socks finished! On to the next pair…

Minnow Merino Socks

I finished the socks I have been working on for the past week. I am wearing them right now. They are wonderful and cozy, and they match the feathers in my hair. What could be better? Elanor and Joey helped me take the pictures.

Hundertwasser sock yarn

I have started the gauge swatch for my mom’s socks. She picked out some self-striping sock yarn while we were in Germany, and now I will turn it into a groovy pair of socks. Self-striping yarn is always fun to knit with. I feel so accomplished, even though I know it isn’t my skill that makes the stripes happen. This particular yarn is especially cool because it is inspired by the work of Friedensreich Hundertwasser, an Austrian painter and architect who designed an apartment block called Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna, Austria. My family visited the house when we were in Vienna years ago, and it has always been a favorite memory of that trip.
