First things first.
May I introduce a pair of non-thrilling functional socks. 6-ply yarn for comfort and warmth while wearing rubber shoes (not boots, hence the ankle version).
Pattern: Ankle sock in plain stockinette stitch with slip stitch padding for the sole. Knitted toe-up with short row heel.
Yarn: Fortissima Colori Socka Color 6-ply
--------(Schoeller Stahl), colour 2 (discontinued)
Needles: 2,5 mm dpn bamboo
After enjoying a nice "winter" walk yesterday, my inflammation of the ears, precisely only the right one, arouse to new life. Great! Means another day in bed (no work is really great though!) and hopefully enough time/fitness to knit up the replacement hat. I do need it!
The GOOD news today is that my socks arrived sound and safely at Sarah's place and it appears they fit. [sigh of relief] Go and visit them in their new home!
