I’ve been taking on a knitting challenge

Bayerische Socks


by the lovely Eunny Jang. An amazingly talented woman.

But am I using yarn that is too complicated, would they look better as mitts rather than socks? I’ll just keep knitting and hope I make my mind up.

This is slow progress. Many of the stitches are cables and most are alternated between purl and knit to back of loop. The only time I can knit this is in full day light. So its definitely a long term project. Thisis why I wonder if it will be better as mitts, easier to complete and would look great with a matching hat….

I’m Jiva, 29 going on 19 or 99 depending on how you look at it. I have a love for home, my man, my family, my cat, knitting and general peace and quiet.

So enough about me… how about you?
