Autumn socks – for me!

I’ve jumped on the sock train and I’m never getting of it!

I made myself a pair of socks for the autumn – my favourite season!

Delicious Hedgehog Fibres Sock and my favourite heel design (Fish Lips Kiss heel by the Sox Therapist) = love ’em!

My Autumn socks on Ravelry



In the first months of 2014 I promised myself to write down everything I’d craft in the year and make a fancy list of if by the end of the year. I made a list of almost everything I did and tried to put it all up on Ravelry with photos. However, some pairs of socks and mittens were missed by the camera and it’s not a complete list for the year as I’m definitely forgetting something…

So here it is, in no particular order:


Baby set for the wee one; a sweater, hat and socks

Ysolda’s MKAL shawl

A green BSJ

A purple BSJ

Striped socks

Kenzie shawl

And… loads of mittens, socks and hats for the kids.


A blanket for the wee one

 Herðubreið shawl

 Blanket for a new nephew

Jóhanna af Örk hat/cowl


I’m setting the goal for even more crafting in 2015!

No more tangled headphones!

I love my headphones but I hate when they get all tangled up and it takes precious minutes (that could be spent knitting!) to untangle them. So I crochet the cord and now I have yarn-cover headphones that don’t tangle!

Knitting with Mr. Fibonacci!

Fibonacci was an Italian mathematician born in 1170. He is known for the Fibonacci sequence of numbers where every number is the sum of the two previous numbers.

It starts like this:  0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233… etc.

So… why am I, the knitter, going on about some Italian that loved numbers?

Because the Fibonacci numbers are BRILLIANT for striped knitting! Yes, by using these numbers to help us decide when to change colors you get a garmet that is random in color without looking like you where really confused when choosing the colors.

This is a vest I made, using Fibonacci’s numbers with the striping:

Pattern:  Vesti goes hipp from the book Prjóniprjón
Yarn: Létt-Lopi from my stash
Needles: 3,5 and 4,5 circulars, 60 cm.

Here is the project on Ravelry.

On the needles now is a shawl. The pattern is from the book Prjóniprjón, the needles are 6.0 mm. KnitPro’s and the yarn is my very own hand dyed Eigingirni. Here is what it looks like now… just a few stitches on the needles:

Frost all done! :)

The traditional icelandic sweater I was making for a friend of mine is all done and shipped to USA!

Pattern:  Frost by Védís Jónsdóttir from Lopi 29
Yarn:  Álafoss lopi, same colors as in the pattern

A little close up on the finishing…

A birthday gift
