Sock it to me knitting KAL

Another KAL is just about to start soon! A sock KAL! Yeah! Ravelry has really got me going on sock knitting! I'm on my third pair this summer and I who hated sock knitting before. The second sock syndrome has hit me again and I have to finish by the end of the week.

For the Sock it to me KAL I'm going to knit some Old Danish Socks! Semi Solid skein and the pattern is in purl stitches. Here is a link to the pattern site :

I have to modify the pattern since I'm not going to knit stockings! It's going to be so much fun, I love Ravelry!

Long time no see!

I have been rather busy this summer so the blog has been neglected. Hope things will calm done as fall is rapidly getting closer. Looking forward to more cosy knitting time and have plans for inviting friends over for a knit together. Last winter we didn't have time for these cozy meetings.

This summer we spend 2 weeks in Sweden. The first week we spend with my sister and her husband in Härnösand. We had a lovely time and the weather was splendid. The last week we spend is Stockholm and Karlstad. We love Sweden. Here are some photos from our trip.

Hemsö outside Härnösand. We spend an afternoon on this beautiful island.

My knitting project this summer:

Socks in WM Spina di Pesce


Hitchhiker in WM Poison nr.5


Shawl in WM Mitternacht Lace


My steeking project in Rauma, I hope it will be finished someday! It was rather scary to cut in the knitting but it turned out rather well.

My latest knitting project. Socks for DD. Was supposedly to be for me but it's to small. So happy she liked it.
