kalajoki socks




My feet are pretty happy these days. 

These sunny yellow Kalajoki socks are off my knitting needles and on my feet (err...they will be as soon as the temperature drops below the sweltering 90 degrees it has been this week).










This beautiful pattern is named after the Kalajoki River in Finland because the wavy design resembles the river's winding path. It's a free pattern (unbelievable!), so scoop it up and make a pair of your own. 

I used Yarn Daze Prairie Sport Weight in Sunflower, a yarn hand-dyed in Indiana. The subtle tonal variations add depth to the yarn without overpowering the pattern.

My notes are on Ravelry.

P.S. K's grandfather made the cherry stool in the photos. K received it as a gift many Christmases ago. Isn't it great?

  3. I guess that's one good thing about socks: your feet don't change in size so they'll fit come cold weather. (I have a lot sewn creations at the bottom of my closet that don't fit anymore!)

    These socks are absolutely gorgeous! The color, the pretty wave.

    (Oh and to reply to your recent comment on my food post: The blueberries I used were frozen ones from a year or maybe even two ago when we received a ton. I can't wait for blueberry season---especially when we can start picking our own!)
