I'm pretty busy ( as usual) at the moment.
We had Heikos aunts, uncles, cousins and Heikos parents and Granny over for brunch today and they stayed until 5 p.m so no great progress this weekend but during the week I was pretty busy.
First, if you haven't seen mad hatters great monkey socks go over and visit her! I finished my first monkey sock made from my self dyed yarn but after knitting the socks shank (if somebody knows the right English/American term, please let me know ) with no. 2.5 dpn's I thought they would be too tight so I switched to no. 3 and now the foot is too wide. I guess I'm going to rip them.
I need to remember to make these pics during daylight... I guess that will make taking nice pics easier. Mäddi any hints how to make good sock pics? now, that we got you hooked :) As well as Helfeelfe??
Not finishing my monkeys yet has another reason :)
My not twisty peppermint twist. Here comes a pretty boring pic :) but for me it is a lot of progress to knit that much in a weeks time!
And last not least I started working on my challenge project.
Things learned so far:
- Steaming your fingers is not a good idea
- I still hate welt pockets and need to practise them more. I think about hiring Ute (Louise) for a day long one-on-one class...
- I do not have enough lining here for my project and I need a very drapey one, so this
will be my lining. It's a fabric that I purchased at wazoodle some long time ago, but never used for anything, I mean the fabric is pretty loud, so...
Btw lining does not count as fabric (challengewise)
hope you had a great weekend :)
