Glauberg Socks

According to Wikkipedia "The Glauberg is a Celtic oppidum in Germany consisting of a fortified settlement and several burial mounds, a princely seat of the late Hallstatt and early La Tène periods. Archaeological discoveries in the 1990s place the site among the most important early Celtic centres in Europe. It provides unprecedented evidence on Celtic burial, sculpture and monumental architecture." Monika Eckert, a German knitting designer, has based her latest sock design on the Glauberg.  It was a Knit-Along through her Ravelry Group Klabauter KALs. The socks were knit with a generic off-white sock yarn from WEBS on two 2.5 mm circular needles.  The two circs were a first for me.  I actually managed to knit the socks with them only ending up on one needle twice. 


Thank you, Moni, for another wonderful pattern.

Almost caught up...

...with the Afghan squares.  Here are the September ones:

I think the last pattern would make a nice sock pattern, using 4 or 6 ply and possibly self-striping yarn.

Update on Crazy Quilt Afghan

I have been amiss in posting pics of the afghan squares I've been knitting.  The saying goes "time flies when you're having fun." Unknown to me I must have had lots of fun this year since October has already arrived.  Here are the photos of the July squares.  August and September squares are done as well, but I have to find out first to where the photos disappeared when I stored them on my computer.  Oh well!

Knit on merrily!
