Ég hjarta New York

I´ve been writing about my trip on my Icelandic blog so y'all have to go over there for any details, but I can tell you that I had a great time on the plane (planes actually because I had a layover in Charlotte, NC) traveling without small children for the first time I can remember (my memory really only reaches back where they were born anyways, he he). I made the most out of it and knit and listened to knitting podcasts the entire time.

I eventually found my mum´s socks (while I was looking for something else) and here is what they look like.


Here is how they looked like when I started them.

One toe done, one sock to go

I made the socks with ONline supersock and used the toe up sock pattern from Ann Budd from Interweave knits this summer. I actually started using this instruction for Turkish toe.

I timed it so that I would start the second sock at the same place on the pattern repeat as the first. That made them a little short (but not too short) and I ended up with a lot of leftover yarn, so this yarn goes a long way. Maybe I can use it for something for the kids. Perhaps socks?

Your toe up socks are fabulous. I haven't tried that type of pattern yet, but it is on my never ending to do list :)

happy knitting :)

Ég les alltaf bloggin þín, gaman að því!
Vissi ekki að til væru sérstakir prjónaþættir til að hlusta á, alltaf eitthvað nýtt.
Kveðja að austan, Kaja

Those are lovely socks. I look forward to reading about your trip.

Yes, it's Maizy, maybe the same colour you have, Kelp Grey. I can't remember if I told you but I had to temporarily move my blog to http://knittingandamovie.wordpress.com so you can read about it a little there.

I *still* haven't done a pair of socks toe-up. It's on my to-do list. And? Writing things about me in Icelandic? Not quite fair (although it doesn't seem to be anything bad - I think). ;-)

En girnilegir sokkar. Hrikalega flottir.
