More Socks for Akkhol

These are socks #18, 19, 20 and 21 for the year 2011


More socks for the orphanage in Kazakhstan. The first pair is knit from some old yarn in the short row pattern. Not my most favorite pattern, but the hand-dyed yarn calls for it. Regular 4 ply sock yarn.
Just enough yarn left from a skein of ONLine Supersocke Wellness II to make a pair of 16 cm long socks. 

A skein of 4-ply sock yarn dyed by that fabulous in-house dyer, aka youngest daughter.  The pattern is called "Fluss des Lebens" (River of Life) and is by the German designer Sonja Koehler.  It can be found free of charge on Sonja's Ravelry site called "Sonja's Sockenland."


And finally a pair of socks knit with another skein of ONLine Wellness II yarn.  These socks have a foot length of 22 cm. The pattern is based on the "XOX Socks" by Wollhuhn (literally translated wool chicken).  She offers several free patterns on Ravelry.

I'll close with Porky Pig's famous saying: "That's all folks" for today.  Knit on Merrily!
