Thank you all for your kind words! Smiley

And indeed, it is possible to wrap them several times around the waist, that is how I usually wear them, but since they are quite demanding and won't go with every outfit, I've never managed to switch these to my everyday wardrobe. Smiley

They look so very adorable and mischievous at the same time! Not to mention that I really like how detailed and colourful they are. Smiley

Thank you all! Smiley I have done a few knitting projects over the years, but it really is only a few. And about the yarn... erm... well, it's something I have had lying around the house for ages and I'm not really sure about the right terms in English, but I can tell that it's 100% woollen and quite thin.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knee high woollen socks on: February 24, 2012 11:47:14 AM
During the darkest time of last year, right around Chistmas, I managed to finish knitting a pair of knee-high woollen socks. I hadn't really knitted any socks after the ones we did at school, when I was about 12 years old, but since I knew the basic techniques, it wasn't that hard of a project.

The pattern I used is based on a pair of similar knee-high socks, which were knitted by my great grandmother. Since they are almost a few decades old by now and very worn out, I figured I should make something to replace them and even though I must admit, the quality of my knitting is still far behind that of my great grandmother's, I am quite happy with how these turned out. Also, they proved to be of great value, when in January I had to suffer the outside temperatures of -30C.

At least now you're properly equipped for any possible intergalactic travel that might occur in the future. I actually just finished reading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and I must say, I love this towel! Smiley

A few summers back I attended a historical reenactment event and during the days I spent there, the viking-age enthusiasts managed to teach me card weaving and make me fall in love with it. After that I have every now and given it a go and as a result have managed to complete a few rather colourful belts with various different patterns.

I've yet to come up with a good way to wear them though, as I always manage to make them far too long for everyday uses. So until now I've only been able to wear them during folk events and the few reenactment festivals I happen to visit, but I am thinking of making a bag in the near future and using one of these as a strap.

Ah, it's a TARDIS and it's a beautiful piece of glass craft... Two wonderful things combined and the result truly is stunning. Smiley I really like it, especially the way the colourful glass seems to glow in light.

I'm afraid I have nothing to that hasn't been said before, but this truly is a stunning mosaic! Smiley Very elegant and beautiful, also, I really love the colour-scheme!

Ah, I have always loved miniature food that makes me want to eat it and I certainly would like to eat and drink these. Smiley Wonderful work!
