Knitting update

Just a tiny short post to show y’all the knitting projects I mentioned in my last post, which I finally finished up. At the top are my “Munich Glitterin’Goldie” Socks:

Munich Socks

I started to knit them during a lengthy drive to Munich for a daytrip. The pattern is from ravelry and I really enjoyed it. It’s easy and fun to do.. and also very easy for memorize after the first few repeats. The heel and toe are my usual ones and I also cast on fewer stitches than the pattern asked for, as my feet are pretty slim and the socks would have been way too big otherwise.  So I worked with 60 stitches instead and therefore only knit 5 stitches inbetween the increase and decrease parts of the pattern. Here they are on rav: http://ravel.me/aravis83/v06m5

The second pair of socks are mosaic socks and I started them way back in August, when K. and I were on our way to Köln to visit the Gamescom 2012. (It was pretty awesome there, btw.) At first I wanted to use one multicolored yarn as contrast color to the white one like it is shown in the pattern pics, but now I’m really glad I used solid colors instead. It makes the pattern show up way better this way.

The pattern itself is a lot easier than it looks and I also love how they turned out… though for some reason I didn’t enjoy knitting them much. Oh and here is the pattern on rav.: http://ravel.me/aravis83/3sk74

And finally here is my new hat:

Doesn’t it good just great? I loved the pattern and it was supereasy and fast to do. It only took me a couple of hours to finish. At first I was a little worried that it would be too short, though I worked 4 pattern repeats as recommended, but after blocking it fits wonderfully and is just the right length.

Oh and did just one small change. As I was using smaller needles and yarn, I cast on an additional 12 stitches, which worked out perfectly. Here it is on rav.: http://ravel.me/aravis83/890lz
