“Knit on with confidence and hope, through all crises” – Elizabeth Zimmermann

This is what’s on my needles today:

imageA pair of mittens. I have mentioned them here before…

The felted flower at the top is made from the pilling and fuzz balls that appear on hand-knitted garments after they have been worn a while… I thought I could make a good use of them, by turning them into flowers! (I’m planning on making Christmas Decorations with them too).

Boy is very pleased with his new woolly socks… (which are also mentioned HERE):


Although they have been sitting in his drawer for a while, He has started wearing them today… They are great inside wellies!

I have been toying with the idea of writing the pattern down to put it on Ravelry, but I’m not sure if it would be of any interest to anyone…

What’s On The Needle Wednesday #2

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I finished the pair of socks I was knitting last week and I started a new pair straight away…

I have got no shortage of big projects I’d like to cast on, there are all these beautiful cardigans, knitted dresses, Tees and pullovers in the queue, along with jumpers for Paul and Thom… But I’m on a mission to knit us socks at the moment. I’m really enjoying working on smaller, easier to carry around projects. I think I will always have a pair on the go even when I go back to knitting bigger garments.

Thom wants me to knit him an octopus and a knitten…you know, a knitted kitten.

So… To be continued!

What’s On The Needle Wednesday #1 :


I have been knitting socks for the last couple of weeks. Today Sock number 2 is on my needles. On the picture above, you can see her posing with her bigger sister, Sock number 1, which I knitted last week…

And that’s how Sock 1 looked like a week ago:


And the week before that, I had just finished knitting my very first sock: Here is Sock 1 for Thom:


This sock is still waiting for her sister to be made… Maybe next week?
