Socks, Socks, Socks

Well, I’m off to a good start into the wonderful Socktoberfest. Today I indulged and bought FOUR skeins of the much praised Trekking XXL sock yarn. The whole bloggosphere has been buzzing with it and I’ve seen it in the local shops but never really gave it much tought. Now Socktoberfest gave me THE perfect excuse to spend some money on it.

As far as socks go, I finally finished one pair that has been my travelling project for what seems like forever. The colours are fun and pretty much exactly like in the photograph. They are a bit small on my feet but they are intended for a friend anyway.
