After Marietta told me that my blog is mentioned over at Brigitte.de (a big women magazine over here in Germany) I didn't know what to say. I don't consider myself being a knitter. But somehow I don't consider myself being a *insertwhateveryouwanthere*, too... Maybe I'm just someone who accidentally does what she does right now.
Anyways, I do know what to show you for that knitter-thing:
The first knee-heights of my life. Took me forever, but yesterday the second sock jumped off my needles.
Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise, colorway "Gewitterhimmel". The pictures don't do the yarn justice - it's adorable in its different hues of blue!
Knit on 2.5 mm dpns, top-down. Please note the little picot edge... I'm in love with picots lately ^-^
Pattern: none, but I officially felt highly inspired by the Mata Hari socks and the lovely Spiral Boot Socks pictured in Interweave Knits (Summer 2007). I changed the pattern of Mata Hari slightly, but I think it's noticeable that they are "relatives", no?!
I started out with 72 stitches and had 64 sts left when I reached the foot. It was a bit freakin' to get the decreases done in a "nice" way, but I can live with the result. The socks will be hidden in boots anyway.
One last thing and I'm off, going to a birthday party: What do you think of yours truly's new color(s) & cut?
Bad pic, I know. Darker in real. The red surely will be back somewhen, but right now I feel like chocolate brown with four-color-streaks and a windmachine look.
Speaking of wind... I need to hurry!
Have a nice sunday out there ^-^
