So, Ive started my christmas-knitting, and is so excited I need to share! Im not gonna get feedback from the intended recipients for another month or so  Cheesy Im on a sock-roll this year, I feel.

Dark gray and teal socks in a traditional pattern

Better pic of the rose-pattern. Its so pretty

Same in black and light blue. Its for my dad and way to big for me

And another one in black and white.


I love them!

And *ehm* loving moose-socks

With trees on the other side. Thise makes me giggle.

More traditional socks.

Better pic of the pattern. I really like the "diamond" under the heel.

Same pattern in white

And some mittens - from my own pattern. They are really a dark purple and light gray - not bright pink. But my green carpet messes a bit with the colors

A view of inside.

Same colors, but opposite use.

And in dark gray and pink. I love making these - they knit up so fast

More socks - in thin, soft yarn.

And what Im working on now. Its gonna be another sock. I love the pattern


I collect the pieces of insight I find on the street and sew them into a quilt of understanding.

So gorgeous! I want to try sock-knitting but I don't know how to pick up dropped stitches and have never finished a knitting project so I'm too scared. I LOVE the first teal and navy ones, and the ducks, and the pale green ones in the thinner yarn- what kind did you use for those? I also like the last ones you're still working on- it makes me chuckle. How long do they take you?

Wow, its supercool being fetured! Cheesy

Everyone can find the moose-chart on ravelry here to make their own. Its awesome, but a bit annoying to knit up. There is no rythem so you have to look at the chart all the time.

I usually spend a day or two on each sock.

I actually have no idea what kind of yarn I use, I have the world biggest stash of unmarked yarn. I just grab whatever seems the right weight and knit on. Im trying to get rid of it this christmas.

All of these are so awesome! I love the patterns, and I've always wanted to try that type of knitting but am scared too!  Embarrassed I especially love the purple and gray mittens, so pretty! Did you make all these patterns up yourself (other than the moose one)? Amazing!  Grin

This Rocks!!!  Cheesy

I just recently started knitting. I've bookmarked this, but it might be this time next year before I try socks! Very nice work, thanks for sharing!  Grin

omg I love the duckies! Wish I knew how to knit. I don't think I could get that kind of pattern with crochet! They look awesome!

« Reply #9 on: November 11, 2010 03:09:04 PM »

Oh my goodness, I love them all! Especially the duckies.

I wish someone in my family knitted so they could make me cozy socks :c

I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
