A few skeins of unwanted sock yarn held together with some lace. It was straight ahead, using a simple top-down pattern I’ve used so many times. I had a few issues with the stripes as the amount of yarn in each color pretty much directed the arrangement … Basic and comfy sweater that will be used a lot, but not a big deal really …

This is the first time I make a sweater for my boyfriend.
It’s a long story – it always is :) More details on my Ravelry project page.

They are pretty, but I didn’t have enough yarn to make them as long as I wanted and they itch … so I made another pair in a nice cheap wool and soya yarn from my local supermarket.

Made another pair of really long socks. This time with a sport-weight sock yarn and a stripy chunky rib on top. The rib is striped with double-held fingering sock yarn. Use various leftovers for a contrasting effect.

I’ve kind of obsessed with making perfectly fitted socks (!)
I always do them toe-up, two-at-a-time on a Magic loop with gusset and a heel flap.
As my sock experience progresses I start to picture my own socks and I have this thing with knee-highs generously topped with a textured band to fold. My first attempt turned out quite successful and in time I will make a pattern for it.
Now I’m trying to make a pair in a sport weight-yarn with a striped top made from leftovers.

I managed to get my Xmas present for Polly ready just in time. She named it “Trylle” and is very cute. I managed to make the inside of the ears white with the help of intarsia plus I added a little pom-pom tale. A gift from mother to daughter, hope she keeps it for years ❤
