Balls of PINK !!!

February 1, 2012 § 4 Comments

I’ve been craving for true pink for some time now. The question was; how bright can I go? Here is the answer:

Filatura Di Crosa: Sportwool, 100% pure new superwash wool, 50 g = 125 m/136 yrds + Madil Yarns: Kid Seta, 70% mohair, 30% silk, 25 g = 210 m/230/ yrds.

I’m satisfied :) and plan to make a comfy – and very bright – sweater. It’s a soft superwash wool from Filatura Di Crosa and a fine silk mohair from Madil Yarn. I go for a cowl or for a cable sweater:

The cowl sweater will be such a quick and simple knit, whereas the cabled has more risky fitting issues, it looks more interesting though …

While I was dreaming away in pink I made my daughter this cute little headband:

SOCKS !

January 16, 2012 § 1 Comment

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.

Yarn: Regia Hand-dye Effect

Yarn: Mayflower Strømpegarn

Yarn: Hjertegarn Ragg-strømpegarn

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.

Yarn: Hjertegarn Ragg-strømpegarn

Now I’m trying to make a pair in a sport weight-yarn with a striped top made from leftovers.

Yarn: Zwerger Garn, Opal Regenwald 6-ply + scrap

Cable knitting has always seemed awkward to me – until now … There will be many cables coming up. Got a lot to catch up with :)
