I´m not getting into literature here with Monsieur Charles... but I was quite surprised that my socks have a pre-name!
I proudly present: Baudelaire by knitty - another great pattern by Cookie, whose patterns are not only very pretty but also very clear and easy to follow. The pattern repeat was easy to remember so I could just knit away and dream of spring...
They´re knit on 2.5 mm dpns with the wonderful hand-dyed yarn by "Rohrspatz und Wollmeise", color "Veilchen" ("Violet").
Because the pattern is kind of very busy I used a strand with little contrast, and I think it really turned out oh-so-well!
I made them in size S as I have very small feet, but I did use the adjustments for the higher instep. I´ve looked over the measurements for my Pomatomus socks and then decided to knit the higher instep - just for sure. Now I´m glad I did! *gg*
The violets aren´t in bloom right now, but spring is in the air. Time to get some cool cotton yarn for the summer knits...
Want to see more Baudelaire socks on flickr?
Or do you enjoy browsing other lovely baudelaires in other knitter´s blogs as much as I do?
Whatever you may prefer doing now, I hope your day was as "blue" as mine!
