Mosaiko (Baby Slipper Socks)

25 Apr

Mosaiko is a cute pair of 2-colour baby slipper socks, knit in sport weight yarn to keep baby’s feet nice and toastie. It uses such little amounts of yarn that it is a great way to use up leftovers in a fun and useful way.

They do not require complicated colour work as only one colour is ever worked per round.

Introducing Sunkissed

11 Jul

I just finished knitting my shawl, which is now named Sunkissed, somehow it just seems like the appropriate name. It’s just off the needles, so is still unblocked and is modeled by my – very happy looking – 5-year old! 😉 So, obviously, it’s too big for him!

Here are a few pictures, it will now be tested and should be published in about 10 days.

I’m progressing on my shawl and I like it so far. I’m still unsure what the edge will look like, one certainty only is that it will be in yellow!
