Finnish Socks in progress...

My husband is interested in Finnish language and culture, so I found it quite fitting to start these socks from the book "Folk Socks".

This is a bit of a belated Valentine's day gift. I am just working on the gusset now and it won't be long until sock #2 is complete.

The yarn I used is Scheepjes invicta extra in cream and red. The needle is my Addi 2.5 mm circular, 40 inches long. I didn't buy the yarn with this pattern in mind. I flipped through Folk Socks after I bought it, and decided to make it.

It's a gorgeous, unisex sock, and the narrow double decrease toe fits my husband's narrow foot really well.
