snowbird mittens

pattern: snowbird, vogue knitting fall 2008

yarn: lana grossa, cool wool merino superfein

i love, love, love this pattern. easy to knit, never boring and a lovely result. unfortunately they are really wide. maybe i should have used thinner yarn? anyway, i’m happy with the result and can’t wait to wear them.

thuja christmas socks

i knit these socks as christmas present for my dad. it’s not christmas yet, but as he never looks at this blog it’s quite safe to post them already anyway 😉

pattern: loosely based on the thuja socks

yarn: wolle rödel, sock yarn

 

these socks were a real pain to knit! knitting socks for men is so boring! the don’t want any fancy patterns with cables or lace but have big feet. so you are stuck with a boring pattern for ages and ages!
