Welcome to my blog


Here I'll write up about new designs that I'm working on, design stuff that interests me and my general love of anything to do with textiles, fashion and photography!

Knitted socks.... yes, a post about something else besides cross stitch!

I've finally finished knitting my stripey socks, just in time for winter... They're lovely and warm and cosy!

The yarn is a Kaffe Fassett one for Regia and it's a 4 ply yarn. The pattern is by Erika Knight. You have to knit the socks on double pointed needles in the round. tricky to start, but OK once you get going on it..

Below I'm modelling, (ha ha), the finished socks.. and below that is one sock in progress.....

What I really like about this yarn is the flashed of greeny turquoise against the rustsy/ earthy colours - and the way it looks like you've knitted lots of different stripes but it's really just one continuous ball of space dyed yarn - ingenious! ;-)
