Finally finished these stockings. They took me AGES. I was suffering the SSS. Started and finished the first sock in November 08, started and finished the second sock in February. Just in time for spring!

Didn’t follow the whole pattern, I did shortrowheels. I know, I am lazy 🙂

The yarn is Knitpicks bare sockyarn. Dyed with logwood and used alum as a mordant. I think the color is very pretty.

How a heart saved my mitten. February 16, 2009

on Valentinesday I discovered a hole in my Melina Mitten!

I already wasn’t very pleased the way the yarn behaved (pilling, out of shape,) but this was the limit!  (maybe I shouldn’t be so harsh on the yarn. I wear the mittens every single day)

Luckily I had some Cascade to save my hands from getting cold.With a heart ofcourse.

It was Valentinesday after all.

(I notice the heart starts to felt already. Well as I said I do wear these mittens A LOT, it’s a great pattern by Malia and you can purchase it at Penelope Craft)
