Pictures, believe it or not...
These are my nine balls of sock yarn, from Mariannes Sockenwolle. Two of the balls (the two at the right end of the first row) came from some kind of bargain bin and I couldn't choose the colours myself. The one with red, yellow and purple is very much not me, but I think I know who might like it. The single ball of Trekking has a very different pattern from the Opal yarn and I look forward to trying it. So far, I have knit a pair of tiger socks (see below) for my youngest, and I am doing a pair of Tangled garden socks with white Regia and the blue/green second ball in the second row. It takes alot of work but the result is pretty.
Some of the things I've been poking my needles at these last weeks:
- A scarf for my sister-in-law, using one strand of grey wool and one strand of different kinds of blue mohair. A true stash buster, or rather scrap buster. Knitted in "patent knitting" which I believe is the same as brioche or fisherman's rib. The perfect scarf stitch, in my opinion.
- A pair of tiger socks for my son. He was so happy with the reault that he brought them to show-and-tell in school.
- A bag for a friend. This is what it looked like pre-felted.
Apart from that, I did a scarf for a colleague and gave it away without even thinking of taking a photo. I have just finished another one, to make sure that all of my three colleagues keep healthy and cozy this winter.
