Last weekend I have been painting a little in my sketchbook. Enjoy.
Yes, I’m still busy knitting socks. The first one of my paraphernalia is done. This is a free pattern from ravelry.com with minor modifications. I added the colours because I had wool leftovers to get rid of. I also ignored their toe instructions and did them as I always do them.
I also have started a new project. This one is my own pattern. I’m thinking about preparing this one for public release, but you know how notorically bad I am about seeing such projects through to the end. These days I’m proud of myself if I finish any craft project at all.
I also have been painting a bit this weekend, but that will be for another post.
I love knittting socks, and I’ve done a lot of them over the last year. So I show you socks today.
The first picture shows the heap of baby/young child socks I have done during winter. Most went to aquaintances or coworkers who got new babies.
These two pairs of socks were knit for the newborn of a coworker. I hope they keep the little one warm. Pink is the mother’s favourite colour, and she told us upfront it was going to be a girl.
This is the heap of baby/child socks I knit the last two or three months. Again for relatives and aquaitances with little ones.
This is the first sock on one of the pairs for me I currently work on. The safety pin holds a lost stitch which I will secure when the sock is done. I only saw the lost stitch a few row above it so I fudged a new one instead of working this one up through the cables. I’m not going into all the other adult socks I knit because you want only so many pics in one posting.
I’m sorry for the long blogging break. I’m especially sorry if I scared anybody. I’m reasonably well, but life kept getting in the way. Also, my bad shoulder has somewhat healed and now that I can do it again I’m absolutely, totally addicted to knitting. If you are on ravelry.com, search for tenar72 there.
Still, I’m missing the blogging world and want to be back. Maybe never as regular as before, but I’ll try. And I won’t preasure myself to do things I don’t feel like just for the sake of blogging about them, so it may well be some time until there’s stitching again. But there will be.
For now, just some random pics about what’s on my needles.
These random parts will be a frog one day. Note to self: knitted amigurumi are not the right project for learning short rows and kitchener stitch. There’s just too much of it, and it’s my first time doing both.
