I’m addicted to socks!

Hello lovely readers!

I have finished my first real knitted pair of socks (pairs 1 and 2 being more like slippers than actual socks) and I am completely converted! I have been wearing them all of today and they just are so warm and confortable (which is great because it’s been quite cold here). In fact, I love them so much that I have already cast on another pair for myself and I will also make a pair for Tracy over at It’s a T-Sweet Day (I’m sharing hand-knitted socks love ❤️)

The pair I finished is the Glynis design from Cookie A. and I used Schoppel-Wolle Admiral  4 ply in grey for them. I also just started the Mercury socks from Kim Drotar, and I’m using a gradient yarn in reds and oranges for those ones. I still need to chose a design for the ones I will make for Tracy but I’m sure I’ll find the perfect one soon.

These are my Glynis, aren’t they pretty? I predict a lot more socks to come, so if you have a sock pattern you love, please let me know in the comments 🙂

WIP Wednesday – Glynis socks 

Hello wonderful readers!

I’m super happy today, because I’ve finished my first sock! I probably should have started with an easier pattern for my first pair, but I just fell in love with the details. The pattern is from the book “Sock Innovation” and, like the title says, it is the Glynis design.

It’s also getting quite cool here after the time torrential rains from last week, so I’m quite pleased with how warm this sock is! Now, to knit the second one!

My first go at proper socks 

TGIF! I hope you guys had a great week, mine was positively exhausting!

You may remember that I got some lovely yarn from Amsterdam in July and that my wonderful husband got me a really cool book to knit socks for my birthday. 


So I have finally decided to give it a go and I’ve found it quite fun so far. 

The hardest part was to get the round knitting going on my circular needles. I have knitted in the round before but only on double pointed needles, so this was a bit of a challenge at first. 


So far I’ve done the cuff for sock #1 and 2 rounds of the leg pattern (out of 9 repeats), so I still have a fair bit to go 🙂

My goal is to finish at least one sock before the end of the month, we will see how I go with that! 

Have a great weekend
