Knee-High Socks

29 Dec

I finished my first pair ever of knee-high socks!

These will be part of a new pattern, with a simple toe-up knee-high sock pattern with heel flap and gusset. I will add three variations to the pattern, including this stripy version, a cable version I’m working on and a still undecided third variation.

Here are a few pictures of the finished pair.

One Sock

24 Dec

I’m working on a new pattern, which will be for knee-high socks with a basic “recipe” for 3 women sizes and different options. This is the stripy option. I have finished one sock and am now working on the second one. The second option will include cables and the third one might have colourwork, not too sure yet. They are knit toe-up and include a gusset and heel flap.

I’m making these in 2 different colourways of Zauberball Crazy. I love the Zauberball! 🙂

I decided to make them really close fitting mittens as I really like how it looks and feels on the hand. Here are some pictures of the completed mitten

Fingerless Mitts Have Become Mittens

11 Oct

I was planning to do fingerless mitts to match my Ederra shawlette but changed my mind as I was knitting them and went for mittens instead. It just seemed like a better solution. I’m almost done knitting the first mitten, I only have the thumb left to do. I’m still unsure how exactly the thumb will be. A lot of my designing ends up being improvised as I go…
