Weekend Skies #12

The weekend was not so nice, lots of grey skies so as I was off today (Monday, Mar 31), I am considering it as part of the weekend. It was spectacular out, sunshine, blue skies, and warmth. I took my camera and snapped a few photos of knitted and crocheted items I made. I sat in the sun drinking coffee and eating a muffin, knitting away on my sock. Here are a few photos from my walk

Finished Socks and New Socks and Wrist Warmers

Finished Socks

I have finished knitting my first pair of socks. I was happy to cast off the last stitch and put them on my feet. I immediately started making another pair for my son.

Isak’s Socks

Made from Regia Yarn, this striping pattern is visually pleasing to me. I am a colourful person and I like the brightness of the colours, Isak is looking forward to me finishing.

Wrist Warmers

I want to make these wrist warmers featured in Mollie Makes, I need to make these wrist warmers. I am unable to find the yarns people are using to make them. Some people have used Circulo Clea #5, no where to be found in Canada. I know it can be purchased off Ebay and a yarn shop in the UK, although with the exchange, becomes quite expensive. I will be searching around for a suitable substitute.


Ready to Turn the Heel


Here I am ready to turn the heel. Knitting the leg of the sock on one needle has been enjoyable so far, the next part will be the test. If I can successfully turn this heel, the sock will get a mate. If not then I shall be content to wear one sock, a colorful and pretty sock nonetheless.
Wish me luck in my heel turning journey and hope for a mate to be born!

Socks 101


2012 was going to be the year I was going to knit socks. I was also going to finish off my works in progress. In my knitting notebook I made a list if the items I had left to do, shown here.


I have finished a few of these items and marked the date I finished them. I have actually started a couple of others that are not added to the list….sigh, it never ends. It is always nice to have a few things on the go, it is never dull that away!
