Rocking socks and more
Two socks at the same time on one circular needle. For the toe I used 3 mm dpn and now I am knitting with 2.5 mm. They are too big for me but looks nice on my boyfriends feet. But what about the amount of yarn. The scale shows me that I have 112 grams left. That's like 4 oz - do you think I will need more yarn? I might end up with a rather short leg.
I was using my umbrella swift and ball winder last weekend when Zari figured she wanted a ride! The kids really liked that! I have done some swathing on one of the skeins - the pink angora/merino blend. It is very nice and soft when knitted on 4 mm needles. I don't know what to make out of it yet.
I did knit a lot on the camisole in Pure silk, but then the sock-kit came....I have almost finished three pattern repeats.
Some more books came....Rowan and Debbie bliss. A lot of nice patterns, but I already have to many projects on my needles. So these will end up in my book shelves for now.
The fabric for the dress also came the other day. I guess I should not be surprised when the color turned out to be different from what I toughed. On the web-shop it looks like this:
A lot brighter then the real thing! So I don't really know if it will turn out okay, but I guess it is worth a try.
And it always helps to eat some chocolate!
