FLETTER I NATTEN / CABLES IN THE NIGHT
Two years ago I was on a small trip to York. There is a known yarn shop called Ramshambles, which among others has much yarn from York district. I had through their website found a yarn I wanted to buy, but unfortunately they were out of stock for that. It was a thin sock yarn, as I prefer. But then I had to find something else and chose a thicker yarn in beautiful autumn colors, West Yorkshire Spinners Aire Valley Aran. The color is named Autumn Forest. I knit just as the yarn came in the skein so the socks were very different, but I like them that way :) And I see that it had not been possible to wind the yarn to same color shift. These socks are for myself, because they are my souvenir socks from York! They will be nice and warm in autumn.
Sokkene heter Fletter i natten og er fra Bitta Mikkelborgs bok Sokker - strikking hele året. De kvalifiserer til månedens tema i Socks from Stash - inspirert av natur. Garnet har Aire Valley - dal-, i navnet, og høstskog er jo også absolutt en del av naturen. De passer også inn i månedens tema i Sock Knitter Anonymous, der fletter var et av temaene. Mønsteret kan også kjøpes på Ravelry - men da på engelsk. CABLES IN THE NIGHT
The socks are Cables in the night and from Bitta Mikkelborg's book "Socks - knitting all year". They qualify for this month theme in Socks from Stash - inspired by nature. The yarn has Aire Valley , in the name, and autumn forest is also certainly a part of nature. They also fit into the month theme of Sock Knitter Anonymous, where cables was one of the challenges. The pattern can also be purchased on Ravelry - CABLES IN THE NIGHT

Det er blitt deilig og vårlig med sol, selv om vinden har vært litt kald. Og vi har funnet årets første hestehov :) I hagen blomstrer krokusen. Like velkomne vårtegn hvert år! It has been lovely and springlike days, although the wind was a little cold. And we have found the first coltsfoot :) In the garden are crocus blooming. Welcome sign of spring every year!
