Ah, completion

#2 is complete! After modifying the pattern (and moving down to size 0's), I think I got it right :) They fit pretty well, although I am considering adding a little elastic around the ribbing to keep them sitting high on the calves! I have never done knee socks before, but I think that slouching is a common trend.

Thanks for the KAL, it is fun to see every one's progress....and encouraging to keep plugging along! (More pics of finished Clessidra can be seen on my blog)

About two weeks ago I finally finished my first Clessidra's. Knitting Clessidras was a big project for me. I don'd usually knit kneesocks. This was exception. When I started first sock I accidently knit to it long arm.

Against little faults I am sadisfy these socks. They are warm and beautiful!

In my Clessidra's I use Austermanns Step-yarn. It was properly thin in this model. In knitting I use 2,5 millimeters bamboosocksticks.

Bit by bit....

Clessidra #2 has taken the backseat to outdoor time with the hubbs, learning to spin, getting our condo ready to sell.....trying to fight is everyone else coming?
