New socks

Some new socks for Sukkasato


First the bigger ones, from the rest of Lana Grossa yarn I used for the Hederas (which are also done! But not to be shown here as they are a christmas present)


Needles: 2,5mms. 40 stitches around, 4x1 ribbing.


The second pair is from small scraps I had left - they have 28 stitches around in 2x2 ribbing, made with odd needles from 2,5 mm to 3,5mms!

Sukkasato - Sock Harvest

I joined another fun sock knit-along Sukkasato (that's Finnish for Sock Harvest) - which runs September and October. It's Finnish, and the sign-ups are closed, so don't feel bad if you missed it. However, I especially like the fact that children's socks count, and that people are encouraged to knit for charity. I have lots of sock yarn rests, which make perfect children's socks.

Just another posting

This week has been crap. Really stressful sometimes, sometimes very boring. Haven't really been keen on knitting - well I haven't actually been interested in anything this week. I hope for better times with more motivation and strength. I did buy a Spanish self-learn course today, so I'm sure that'll get me out of this slump. And! I'm going on a short holiday in 2 weeks. Can hardly wait.


Some sock joy to share anyway: I finished the second child's sock for my cousin's son. I just need to block them now.

Weekly socks show

Here they are! My ready Rainbow socks. They came out pretty nice, the cuff is quite a lot tighter in the other sock... but I've decided not to mind. 

I also heard that my cousin has just got a new baby, and that of course means I just absolutely must-need-have to knit her bootees, and socks for her 2-year-old big brother.


These bootees are just for practice, as I really didn't master them the first time...
