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.
 
Knit on Merrily!
