Happy Anklets

Originally uploaded by Strickanfall.

Two pair of anklets came out of one skein of Ewa's Sockenwolle.

Zwei Paar Soeckchen hab ich aus dem Knaeuel gestrickt.

Deux pairs de chaussettes courtes faites de 100 g de Ewa's Sockenwolle.

Happy Socks/Anklets
Yarn: Ewa's Sockenwolle mit Baumwolle
Color: Wasserfall (blue, white, turquoise, yellow, purple)
Needles: 2.5 mm DPNs
Pattern: Happy Socks by Cheryl Kemp from MagKnits, March 2006
Cast-on to Finish: 16jun07-27 jul07
Modifications: well, obviously: yarn subbed, shortened to one pattern repeat, pattern only on the leg, converted to top-down, oh and on the second pair I tweaked the pattern to go with my usual stitch count of 15 per needle -- to only have four pattern repeats around the leg
Knitting fun: I really, really hated the yarn: it is not plied, has five separate strands and split all the time -- other than that, it was fun.
Techniques learnt: --

nee, kein Muster, ich hab bloss beim ganzen Fuss immer die erste Masche der Nadel links gestrickt, als "Dehnungsfuge"

Your anklets are lovely! Too bad the yarn was so splitty -- it's such a pretty color.

I love the anklets! Everything you make is beautiful...I keep having to start the same pair of socks over and over and over again :-)

thank you, you two. Yeah, the yarn: I thought the color was lovely, too, and what with it being all famed... argh. Big deception.
