The stockinettes, part 1

I didn't quite make it on wednesday, but I got them done on thursday though:


Trekking XXL yarn, 2.25 mm needles and a standard 64 stitches sock.

I've allready casted on another pair of stockinettes with Regia Kaffe Fasset yarn and another pair with Cherry Tree Hill for BF. I just keep knitting and knitting and knitting :)

Dude, where did the weekend go?

Working full time has serious consequences for your e-life. I was meaning to post a little something this weekend, like a picture of the sock I completed in the awsome sunny sunday. Or, maybe show the two grungy skeins I dyed. You blink once and sunday eve has come and gone. You blink twice and it's monday evening, time to go to bed. A couple of minutes for the blog won't hurt me.


Stockinette sock 1 for my mom's best friend. This one flyes off the needles. I've allready passed heel turn two; just 20 cm's of stockinette to go. Piece of cake, I'll have them finished on Wednesday. And then I can proceed on BF's socks...

Not the most blue socks I've ever made :)

Tofutsies ankle socks, figured the 'pattern' out myself. I used knitting-in elastic in the cuff and seriously disliked working with it. But I think it will prove worth the trouble as it will keep the cuffs where they are supposed to.

Selma, they'll be yours soon!

Rock their socks off

Imagine two people who are not really crazy in love, but are just happy together. Two people who are fed up with being alone and need eachother's warmth. Two people who want to spend their last years together.

I have a new aunt-in-law. BF's uncle (68) got married wednesday to his beautifull bride (74). They are a lovely couple and it was such a special occasion. I don't know how they feel about their socks yet, but I'm sure they'll love them. I don't have a better picture, unfortunately, but it's a simple pattern. Google it and you'll find nice examples.

A jacobean weddinggift

Last week I finished this pair of socks. Well in time for the wedding Wednesday, I might say. I'm good with deadlines. It's pair nr. 29 of the 52-pair plunge.


Pattern: Jacobean by Julie Persinger
Yarn: Meilenweit Mega Boot Stretch softcolor
Needles: 2,5 mm Addi Turbo's

I'm fairly happy with these socks. The yarn is not how I like it. It's too loosely plied, very splitty and tangles a lot. It's not very stretchy, in my opinion, and just not that nice to work with. The color is great, though. Perfect for a bride.
