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.

Pink Breast!

I really love yarnstorming and last October, I breast yarnstormed to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month.

I’ve made a Pink Breast crochet pattern!

Here it is and it doesn’t cost a krona:

Treasure swap!

I joined a Treasure Swap on Ravelry and my first time participating was in September. For those who are not familiar with swaps:  It’s a group of people that sign up for a swap. The group is divided to pairs and each person needs to find things to send to their partner. In the swap I joined there is a list of things you are supposed to send to your partner, for example: yarn, knitted goods, hot drink, pattern and so on.

So… I spent September picking things for my partner, looking out for colors I knew she likes and trying to find something that I would love to recieve.  In the end of September I sent the package off and today I recieved mine!

AND HOLY YARN!!! It’s was packed with goods!
