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!

2014!

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:

Knitting 

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.

Crocheting

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!

A little blanket

Just finished one Bring-it-on-baby blanket from Pickles.no and have casted on for another one! The one I finished is for a little boy due very soon.

This blanket is an easy – and yet so cute – pattern and with the gorgeus colors of the Ístex Kambgarn it’s pleasure to knit! Having 5 friends with babys on the way fast and beautiful knits are more than welcome :)
