Snuggling Nights at Home When the days get shorter and the nights cooler, take on warm socks, and snuggle in front of the fireplace! There are so many beautiful, knee-long socks out there, most of them knitted in fine yarn. And what makes them special? The knitted patterns! Have you seen these Norwegian patterns? I want Norwegian socks, but crocheted in chunky yarn, and with pattern! In Norway we have this tradition with multi-colored patterns. For decades cardigans, sweaters, hats, mittens and socks have been knitted in wool, with local variations in the pattern-designs. Integrated in the pattern there always are these contrast distance-stitches, which crawls all over the garment. That's why the cardigans are called Lusekufte; Lice-cardigan! I wanted Lice on my socks, but first I had to figure out how to do it, in the middle of the double crochet stitches. Done! Not difficult! If the pattern scares you off, just skip it, and work plain socks, they are beautiful as are! And very easy and fast-worked in a chunky yarn. Like to know more about Norwegian knitting traditions? See this link! *************************************************************** We all know about socks' limited wearing time. Sadly enough; The heels are the critical point! What about protecting your new socks with soft, chunky and warm crochet soles? Or better; Can you imagine to be able to wear your socks as boots . ON THE STREET ? It's possible!
