Archive for May, 2013

Omg, it’s been ages since I’ve had time to write a proper blog post. May always is a really busy month for me… lots of birthdays, congresses and other stuff. Anyway, I’ve also been really busy knitting-wise. As I need some new colors for my sock yarn blanket I’ve been knitting socks, socks, socks and even more socks lately. ūüėČ

First of all here is the pair of plain socks, I knit for my brother K. For those socks I cast on 66 stitches (He had BIG feet!). The ribbing is k1p1. The pattern for the ‚Äúmain‚ÄĚ sock is:

  1. round: k5 slip 1 stitch purlwise
  2. round: k all stitches

Repeat those two rounds till you’ve the desired length and then just work your fav. heel.

The second pair I’d like to show off is called “Froschk√∂nig” socks. Froschk√∂nig translates as “Frog King” and I guess it probably relates to the famous fairy tale by the brothers Grimm. Anyway I just love how they turned out. Those off-center cables combined with the lacy edges are simply beautiful. Also I really love the coloring!

The third pair I knit are called Monkey socks. They are a birthday surprise for Hanna and I just love how they turned out. The yarn reminds me a bit of flames with that yellow, red and orange. Anyway, I hope she’ll like them.

And finally here is my latest pair of finished socks. They are called “Spring Forward” and are simply beautiful. The pattern was super-easy and fast and still the socks look really fancy! I just love such patterns. Maybe I’ll do another pair some time soon with different colors of course.

Oh and I almost forgot. Here is the pair I’m currently working on. The pattern like all the others is from ravelry and it’s called Hermione’s Everyday Socks. It’s supereasy and fast… more or less just plain knitting with an occasional purl stitch here and there. The socks not only look comfy, they are!!!
