WIP: Lohengrin Socks

It's too hard to resist the new yarn so I simply had to begin my new Lohengrin socks. I wish I could start knitting the hand-dyed yarn as well now and maybe I will - I am running out of needles!

I spent a day knitting a bit ago only to unravel it all again in favour of using 3 mm needles intead of 2.5 mm. It looks better and should fit better as well. The colour is still as beautiful as I thought it would be when knit up like this. I am very happy with it and only wished Lohengrin was faster to knit. As it is, the pattern is so intricate that I have to focus on every single stitch and stick to the chart, which makes it all a rather slow process. It's not the sort of pattern you can memorise easily, so who knows when the first sock will be done.


  1. Can't wait to see the outcome of these socks! I hope you had a very Merry Christmas too! ~:o)

  2. The colour is really great!!! Love it!
