I knitted socks using the rainbow as my guide

I can’t get enough of the rainbow! I love stripes and bright colors that intermingle and glow! Maybe it’s because there is not enough colors outside this time of the year? Everything is gray and muddy, I have to color my own world. I hope you’re doing that too?

After the ripple blanket I went on to my rainbow socks! Do you name your socks? I always do. Search for socks in my blog and you’ll see what the previous pairs have been called!

This is me knitting in a comfortable position:

The yarn: Opal Feelings sock yarn. Bought at Syfestivalen from Britt.

Pattern: Also from Britt knitting socks in Swedish

Needles: 2,5 mm

Started: June 2007 I think while having fika with my friend Sandra

Finished: Week 2 of January 2008

Feeling: Fun to knit! I like knitting stripes, especially with this self striping yarn where you don’t need to weave in the ends every time you change color. Isn’t that neat?

Rainbow socks

After finishing the first knitting project of the year I’ve been listening to the new radio show Lifehack Live in my ipod while knitting on a fuzzy project in this yarn! from China. You’ll soon see what it is! The Lifehack Live show is great, with tips on productivity, business and organizing! I really like it and recommend you to listen to one or two shows this week.

I’ve gotten the award You made my day by both Yvonne and Tine (who is going to have a baby)! If you have commented on this blog in 2008 you’re on my list of people who has made my day!

Thank you to all of you for being so nice to me!

Take care!

    Hanna–
    Your colors blow my mind. I’m a rainbow person, too. I love the colors on your blog–especially your mother’s tablecloth the other day. From what you’re doing these days, I foresee a bright year for you in 2008.
