During the darkest time of last year, right around Chistmas, I managed to finish knitting a pair of knee-high woollen socks. I hadn't really knitted any socks after the ones we did at school, when I was about 12 years old, but since I knew the basic techniques, it wasn't that hard of a project.

The pattern I used is based on a pair of similar knee-high socks, which were knitted by my great grandmother. Since they are almost a few decades old by now and very worn out, I figured I should make something to replace them and even though I must admit, the quality of my knitting is still far behind that of my great grandmother's, I am quite happy with how these turned out. Also, they proved to be of great value, when in January I had to suffer the outside temperatures of -30C.

Nothing like a yarny project to get you through the darkest times. They look great. New sock knitter you say? Well you did fabulous! Do you knit otherwise? What kind of yarn did you use?

Thank you all! Smiley I have done a few knitting projects over the years, but it really is only a few. And about the yarn... erm... well, it's something I have had lying around the house for ages and I'm not really sure about the right terms in English, but I can tell that it's 100% woollen and quite thin.
