Pattern: RONA wrist cuffs by Alexandra Brinck – download for free · Yarn: Sandnes Garn Alpakka · Colorway: Dark grey · Yardage: 91 · Weight: 38g · Needles: 3.5 mm
They are pretty, but I didn’t have enough yarn to make them as long as I wanted and they itch … so I made another pair in a nice cheap wool and soya yarn from my local supermarket.

Made another pair of really long socks. This time with a sport-weight sock yarn and a stripy chunky rib on top. The rib is striped with double-held fingering sock yarn. Use various leftovers for a contrasting effect.

I’ve kind of obsessed with making perfectly fitted socks (!)
I always do them toe-up, two-at-a-time on a Magic loop with gusset and a heel flap.
As my sock experience progresses I start to picture my own socks and I have this thing with knee-highs generously topped with a textured band to fold. My first attempt turned out quite successful and in time I will make a pattern for it.
Now I’m trying to make a pair in a sport weight-yarn with a striped top made from leftovers.
