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!

The Husband Sweater

Last x-mas I gave my husband yarn for a sweater and a promise to put his sweater as my first priority. Now at the end of February it’s finally finished!

I used the Faroese yarn Snældan, both 3ply and 1 ply, one strand of each. I love the yarn and will definitely use it again.

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!

Hello world!

It’s almost July and we have not seen the summer here in Reykjavík, Iceland. We did have a good spring though so I’m not complaining over the weather… yet ;)

This spring, on the 24th of March me and my husband became parents to a beautiful baby girl whom we named Urður. Here is a photo of her on her way home from the hospital.

My first sock pattern: Jasmin!

I’ve been terrified of knitting socks for years. The thought of making the heel and grafting two toes was more than I could bare. But then I found out you could knit socks from the toe up. And then I saw all the beautiful sock yarn you can buy…

So I started knitting socks. AND I HAVEN’T STOPPED!

I made the Jasmin socks with a special person in mind; a talented girl that I’m so lucky to know. She is also bright and vibrant; just like the colours of the socks!

And because this is my first sock pattern to be published, It’s free through May 2013! Just head on over to my Ravelry shop and download your copy!*

Hope you enjoy the Jasmin socks, I loved knitting them!

*Please note that even though I’m giving you this pattern now it is still under copyright and does not give you permission to distribute it, not now or after May 31st when I start selling it.

My patterns!

I’m working on putting all my knitting and crochet patterns up on Ravelry. Some are already there but some need a little freshening up before they get published. That shouldn’t take too much time.

So for all my patterns, both free and the ones I sell, check out my pattern site.
