Day of DIY # 24. Socks.

Before christmas it was really cold and I needed some new wool socks. Preferably knee high. So I made a pair!

They're knitted with one thread Léttlopi that my dad bought for me in Iceland. Thanks dad!

These didn't take very long to make since I used size 4 mm needles. First time I used my Knitpro Symfonie needles. Lovely! (They're rainbowy and wooden)

These socks get the job done but I learned some stuff from making them. The heels were a bit too small and one thread wasn't enough to make them durable. I've already mended them in the heels as a precaution. Make, use, learn!
