I have them.. 🙂
The Gaudi socks for the BF are done! This time I used actual sock yarn and I’m pleased with the results. I’m sorry for the not so photogenic shape in the pictures. I had sock blockers, but I’ve lost them in the move from Utrecht to Amsterdam. I might still have them somewhere but I haven’t been able to find them yet
I tried to lay them as flat as possible, but I do think I’ll need to make myself a new set of sock blockers. They just don’t look as pretty.. On the other hand, the BF loves them and he’s been wearing them so that’s all I really want anyway 🙂
This little FO is the Bray Cap by Brooklyn Tweed, and now it’s story time.
A while ago my brother told me he’d like to learn to knit because he’s seen me (and my mom) knit some awesome things. So I got all
overexcited and thought it’d be a cool idea if he would get himself a ravelry account. So we set up an account and he picked a nice pattern. Now I know this pattern is waaay to hard for a new knitter, but I was planning to knit it for him anyway (mostly).
So I gifted him the pattern and helped him cast on (the simple version). He learned to knit and purl and we were both very proud. He was supposed to come to knit night with me on a few thursdays but he was too busy with his homework (well.. it’s important too I guess), so he never made it and he never finished the hat.
So in the end my mom and I finished the hat, and my brother never really learned to knit. But he did get a nice hat.. oh well 😛 at least he’s excited 😀
In other news: remember the baby blanket? Well, apparently I’m no Yarn Harlot. Baby Yara was in a bit of a hurry and said hello to the world last week. (This is also the reason I didn’t post anything last week). I was (stupidly) surprised that more than 4 months had passed and I was still not done spinning and knitting (I know..).
I’ve been spinning and plying for 3-4 days, but I’m finally done 🙂 Now I only have 100 grams left and I’m going to use that for the edging. I’m still just working through the whole thing without any real plans. I’m going to use the first 200 grams for the center of a garter stitch blanket and the last 100 (which is more green than pink) will be used for the edge.
I really love the feel (and colors) of this fiber.. once the last batch is done I can finally move onto the huge list of other things I was supposed to finish in 2013…
At least I finished my second sock in January.. now.. what to do with Loki…
