Dyeing, Knitting

Still knitting socks

Hello again. It´s been a while. Life happened and I forgot all about my good intentions to blog more often. But now I´m back. A few weeks ago I posted a picture of some of the socks I have knitted in my own hand dyed yarns. I thought I´d share some more pictures of them in this post. All of the socks are knitted on 2.25mm needles, just a standard simple socks. 68 sts, 20 rounds of rib, a dutch heel and star toe.

I´ve dyed tree different bases and test knit them. A 75/25 wool-nylon blend, a 75/25 BFL-nylon blend and a 75/20/5 Merino-nylon-stellina blend. My project for the next month is to wear them frequently and see if the yarn is strong enough for socks.

I´m working on a pair of self dyed yellow socks too, but I´m working on all kinds of things right now, so I have no idea when they will be done. I don´t have just socks on the go. As we speak, I´ve got two pairs of socks and three shawls on my needles. I´ve also knitted a sweater that I need to show you (looooove it!!!), and my finished “My Shetland Adventure” shawl that was done ages ago. At least 2 months or something… I´ve promised it to my mum, but I wanted a picture before she could have it, so I better take those photos soon! I´ve also been to Gotland since the last time we speak, and I have a few photos to share from that wonderful place as well! So stay tuned!

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the lovely autumn!
