swap, socks, star and lace
This Portugese knitster will be my swap partner for the mohair (see post before).
And this are my "campingsocks" for M. Put mine as a scale next to it. Its Opal Prisma yarn, bought at Wolhalla .
These socks are knitted with Wendy's toe-up sock pattern and its easy, and I really like the round heel thing. The rest is in 2/2 rib and on top a 1/1 rib. That's not a big succes. Next time, no 1/1 ribs anymore.
Again a test-lace with a pattern from an old Katia patternbook. But I'm not sure if I have the patience for a long stole (because that's what I want..) in this (or any repeating) pattern.
And I found a summerholiday project! Great yarn (Meilenweit Megaboot), simple but very effective pattern and easy to carry: (its crochet btw)
A starblanket for a new baby who will arrive in December, here's the free pattern .
