I've been in a sock fever these last few days.
I started knitting them on Saturday and since then the pile of finished little socks has been growing. They are just so much fun to knit. They are very easy to do, I can binge-watch TV series - it takes about one episode per sock and they are an excellent way to use up all my left over yarn. They use so little yarn that I can use even the shortest bit of yarn.
I knit them in two different sizes. The smaller ones start with 16 stitches, the bigger ones with 20 stitches. I actually prefer the bigger ones, they turn out more even and I think, they will be better suited for what I am making them for.
On the whole I plan to knit 48 socks and I have about 50 days left to get them done. I want to use them for two new advent's calendars. On the first of December, I will put them on a washing line and fill them with little treats and chocolate.
