    I’m really glad I finally finished these socks. The pattern is great but the time effort is gigantic. From start to finish took me about 5 month due to demotivation. And I’m really unsatisfied with the color. When I finally started to make the second sock the first one was burried somewhere in my knitting bag and I saw the color problem for the first time when I finally put them on. This IS the same dyelot! And I’m really really thinking about never buying sockyarn in 50g balls again.

    added one pair of short-rows to sleeves, I think there is a mistake in the pattern.

    Modification: The sizes of the slippers in the book weren’t big enough to fit my boyfriend so I did a little math and constructed my own pattern which wasn’t hard and I added one more short row to close the “hole” a bit more.
