FO Friday Fun

FO friday Fun


Here is my FO for this week :)

nutkin

These are my Nutkin Socks which I knit in our August Sock-Along.

What a lovely pattern this was to knit!

It looks so elegant and yet the pattern is quite mindless which lends itself to enjoying knitting it that much more :)

I knit this pattern according to the instructions this time - well more-or-less.
The only mods I made were to use a fish-lips-kiss heel, and my normal toe instead of a short row toe.

Project details:

Pattern: Nutkin
Yarn: Baerenwolle Sock
Needles: Knitpro Zing 2.25mm

I can't wait to get stuck into next month's pattern :)

What have you managed to finish this week?

Feel free to share it below.

Beautiful Sunsets and WIPs


Last week we had a couple of gorgeous sunsets. 
This was one of my favourites :)

As for last week's WIPs this is what I worked on:

handwoven placemat

I have finished my table runner and have started to make corresponding place mats. 
This is the end of number 1 :)

I made so many samples with this warp that I am not sure if I will be able to make 4 place mats like I had planned, I guess time will tell :D

I have finished my Nutkin socks and will share them with you all on Friday (Feel free to come on over and share your finished objects for the week with me too :))

As I have a couple of days until the next month's Sock-Along begins I have cast on a pair of socks for hubby.


I have also picked my yarn for next month's project :)


Next month we will be knitting Brainless socks.
I will be knitting mine in some squishy PondeRosa yarn.

I hope you will consider joining us?

You can find all the info for the 2016 Sock-Along HERE

Joining in with all of my creative friends again this week.

See you soon.

Weaving Progress

media garn

Last week I was in a course which allowed me some practical train-knitting time, but other than that I didn't have much time for anything else.

Over the weekend, I managed to finally get my table-runner a little further and hope to have this part of my warp finished by this weekend so that I can start with the place mats :)

Because my warp is moving forward at a pace that I am enjoying, I have started to warp for my next project.

This warp will become a lounge rug with matching cushions for our new living room :)

I can't wait to begin this project!

Nutkin

My August socks are progressing, and I am trying to get at least a pattern repeat done a day so that I will have them ready in time for the end of the month.

I still really like this mindless pattern with wow effect and am really glad I chose this for a month's project.

Don't forget, if you want to join in the Sock-along fun, you still have lots of time :)

You can find all the info HERE.

What have you been up to this week?

I will be sharing this post with all of my creative friends, so do pop over there and be inspired :)

See you soon.
