Yarn along

After a long pause, I'm finally joining Ginny for her weekly yarn along again.
Since finishing the hat, I decided I needed to focus on knitting some socks again. 
There is still some sock yarn in my stash that needs to be used up and I think I'm going to make another pair or two after these.
The pattern is called Maggie and the yarn is KnitPicks, stroll in the colorway "North Pole Heather".
Kind of fitting since it is snowing here right now.
I am using that term loosely as you can see by the "snow" pictures. :-)
Nachdem ich nun schon ewig lange nicht mehr bei Ginny's yarn along mitgemacht habe, bin ich heute endlich mal wieder dabei.
Schon waehrend ich die Muetze gestrickt habe, hatte ich beschlossen danach mal wieder Socken zu stricken. 
In meinem Wollfundus befindet sich noch einiges an Sockenwolle und die werde ich jetzt mal verarbeiten.
Das Muster heisst Maggie und die Wolle ist von Knitpicks, stroll in der Farbe "North Pole Heather". 
Passt ganz gut da es bei uns gerade schneit.
Wenn ihr die Bilder anseht, wisst ihr was ich mit "Schnee" meine. ;-)
