Yarn Along



Still working on socks. This is a skein of Fortisimma Socka that I had in the stash from a sale at Webs. My niece pointed out that those are the colors of the German flag so I may have to give those to her since she's half German. She travels to Germany every year so I'm thinking she would love these. 

So much for the original plan I had!  

What's on your needles these days?

Other people getting our precious knits is a common theme on Yarn Along today! It will be a treat for your nice, I am sure. Great colors!

I agree with Steph...love the wide blocks/stripes of color! What a lucky niece you have, Donna. :)

I see you are using the magic loop? That's how I knit my first socks...was considering trying DPN for the second pair. Worth a try, or don't bother?

So funny :-) these look like perfect traveling socks to me.
Waving 'hi' from the north of Germany!

LOL, glad I'm not the only one who thought of Germany!!! I love my German National Men's team! Can't wait for the next World Cup!

I like the flecked look of your yarn. I started a pair of socks a couple of weeks ago and seeing yours has reminded me I really need to finish the last one - got to the heel so not far to go :)

Yes, those are the colors of the German flag. :-) I've actually made 3 pairs of socks out of yarn like that and the girls and I sport them quite often during the winter.
