Socks for my sister

I knitted these socks for my sister for her birthday. The yarn is Schoeller Stahl's Fortissima Socka and I used 2½ mm needles. They are just basic socks, but the colors are nice and my sister's favorite colors.

Pippi Socks

I got inspired by the colors of my Seven brothers and decided to do crazy stripey socks. The stripes are made at random, but I think the end result looks kind of cool. They actually remind me of Pippi Longstockings.

I think this is the sixth pair of socks I've made this year, so I'm not even halfway through this year's challenge.

Correction: this is my seventh pair, so I am over halfway through.

Train socks

I knitted two pairs of baby socks for a charity. The socks are given to newborn babies in the local hospital. The pattern is called Train Socks, the yarn is Sirmione sock yarn, and I used 2½ mm needles. One pair was actually knitted during a train ride from Vaasa to Rovaniemi and back.
