I've knit some small things last month and I thought I'd show them to you, as they came out nicely, I think!
First we have the Grown-up bootees. The pattern is by Ysolda Teague, and it's a part of the Whimsical Little Knits 1 collection. I've knit them with vintage superwash wool held double on 5mm needles. This pair fits me, so the size is ca. European 39. They took approximately 100 grams of yarn. I'll be making more as Christmas presents!
A while back I made myself some yoga socks. They've been really useful and I've been using them now and then. After we got the Wii Fit board, Nick wanted some for himself too. So I whipped up a yoga sock following the directions for thicker yarn. However, the sock was a little bit too small, so I had to modify the pattern.
Another FO! These were finished a few weeks ago but I'm just so behind on updating the blog! Sorry... well here they are.
The yarn is Novita's 7 Veljestä, a thick Finnish sock yarn. The pattern is actually from the 7 Veljestä ball band! A very simple ribbed cuff and plain foot, with some colour changes to cheer them up. The socks were knit on 3,5mm dpns.
I'm modelling them in the pictures, so that's why they look so droopy and big - they are! On my feet. On Nick's feet they're just right!
I work out at home, and sometimes I do yoga or pilates too. The floor is really cold though, so I thought I'd knit myself some yoga socks. They came out quite nice, even though if I were to make them again some changes would be made... I've used them a couple of times now and they really do make a difference!
