I am knitting the 7th pair of adult socks for the 52 socks in 52 weeks challenge. I think the yarn came from Webs and was hand dyed by my daughter some time ago. It was originally used in a test knit, but the pattern in the second sock looked nothing like the pattern in the first one. On top of that I had lost my place on the second sock and since the first sock was different I couldn't compare the two to see where I goofed up. So this became one of those rare occasions when I "frogged" both socks. (I can normally live with minor differences, but this was even too much for me.) The yarn was resurrected in this pair.
The pattern is called "Berlin." It was designed by Kristin Benecken for a trip to Berlin by a group of knitters. Not too sure how this works, but I am reasonably sure that it works like some of our car trips to fiber festivals or yarn stores in a different town except these trips are done by train. It is a fairly easy pattern of 16 rows, but not a pattern which can be knit automatically. The pattern is free and can be found on Ravelry together with some of Kristin's other patterns.
Knit on merrily.
