20160827_135612I might be repeating myself, but socks are something I simply have to knit when the time comes. Autumn is approaching and soon my not so little anymore prince will be splashing around after rain and exploring damp forests with his rubber boots on. And as the temperature gets nearer to the zero (Celsius) home knit socks is a big advantage! In fact, last year he went on with his rubber boots and socks even with a little bit below zero (Celsius), and only got into his snow boots when it was really really cold, or – as the name suggests – after the snow fell.

So here I am, getting ready for Winter. I thought I was making these socks with some room for growing feet, but looks like I will have to make a larger pair, as these are tight fit now. And I’m talking about width, not foot length which is easily adjustable😀 I will have to CO more…

You might suggest buying a pair at the store and getting on to some more pleasant (for me) knits. But those store-bought socks just doesn’t make it right. Besides, while knitting my little boy manages to entertain me. E.g., I put those sock with needles in them to measure how much do I need to knit for foot and ask him whether he likes it. “Yes, very much, especially the spikes. Please, leave them in”. Do I need to tell You the spikes are my 2.5 mm sharp DPNs?😀 Luckily we came to an agreement for removing those spikes after all…

So that’s my day-to-day knits while waiting for the most colorful season of the year. And a hat, fingerless mitts are queued, and definitely something else will pop up. And who says I’m not working on something for myself? Oh, and my mother already has introduced me to her Christmas wishes😀 How many WIPS do You usually have going on?

QUICK DETAILS:

  • Patten: plain socks with short row heels, CO 52 sys for a 3 year old guy
  • Yarn: Sole to Sole
  • Needles: 2.5 mm

Kittens

While my needles and hooks are busy making yet another project ( well, a couple of them for now) I wanted to show you my first attempt at cross stitch. I’ve done it a few years ago, but only got it frame recently. I bought it as a kit – sorry I do not recall the brand. But I liked the process so much that right after this one came a couple more – a pillow for my mom and a biscornu, which was sold in a Christmas charity fair, and yes I forgot to take a picture of that… Lately I’ve been feeling like I could stitch a thing or two again.

Please, I really need more hands! Anyone?🙂

 

Reseting My Brain

20160523_113334

Really nothing fancy – just some small, quick, no counting, no swatching, no intense thinking project after finishing a big one. In order to reset my brain and make some space for new ideas!

Though I’m starting to wonder were am I going to put all those “resetters”… Oh, but let’s enjoy the process and not bother ourselves with such details😀

Tiny yet important piece of clothing

DSC_0966

Sometimes in a little ladies wardrobe you can find tiny, often invisible, yet very important pieces. These little panties, for example. “Nothing special” you might say. But just think – wearing these panties means now you can sit down on the (still cold) ground and explore what’s happening under those old grass leaves ( you are mistaken if you think there’s nothing of interest there😉 ).
