Socks and more socks

These past few days have been sock-filled. First came the easy ribbed socks that I have published in Italian only on Maglia-Uncinetto.it, a supereasy pattern that I do not aim to translate. Then came the Paradox Socks, for the moment being only in English (but I will translate them a little later on to Italian) that went on sale as a part of the European Fiber Network KALendar. Hope you like them!

Finished and worn

It got so freezing cold that I decided to wear the new vest right away. It's knitted at 3 sts to the inch in pure wool, so it should keep me warm enough. For the rest it's a basic top-down raglan in stockinette with YO increases, thin garter borders and some waist shaping. With a bit of leftovers I made an I-cord to lace the front decoratively. Nothing fancy but warm.

A vest is (almost) born

Some knitting of my own that I can share, at last. This is a top-down raglan vest knitted on 6.5 (10 1/2) needles. Uberfast, all stockinette with garter borders. It took me lots of pondering to decide a way to make it look lighter, since the wool is rather bulky, and ended up doing all shaping with YOs. Decreases included. More about it once it's done.
