Today I finished my first pair of socks. They are made of 100% acrylic and knitted with a dutch pattern (http://www.wolhalla.nl/kadootjes.php?text=dd_patronen).

I also love how red they are! :thumbsup: Is that a fairly accurate representation of the color?

Hoi Lieke!! Nog een Nederlander, wat leuk :)

Very nicely done socks! congratulations on those :thumbsup: Is that red yarn from Hans Textiel or Zeeman or something? I'm currently making socks with similar red yarn from there :)

I had a look at the pattern and it actually took me some concentration to understand it. It seems I've been on this forum for so long that I'm much better at reading/understanding a pattern written in English as I am with one written in Dutch!

Yes, that's really accurate. They are really bright red.

Yes, the yarn is from Zeeman. I was knitting a scarf with it, but I bought 500 gram, so I figured I could easily miss 100 gram for my pair of socks. I'm really new to the english knitting terms, so I used a dutch pattern, but it took me a hard time too. I used the video's on this website as a help, so I would understand the pattern.
