Sock and lace scrap sweater for Polly

February 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

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 …

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.

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

Scrappy Hat

August 14, 2011 § Leave a comment


It makes sense to use scrap for something nice. In this case it turned into a hearty hat for my daughter. The fit is perfect so I’m sure it’ll be used much as we approach the Fall :)

Didn’t take much yarn – or time – I could hardly tell from the basket that some of the yarn had gone and the knitting only took me a day off from work – left all the ends to be weaved in to the next :)
