Pink and orange wrist warmers

Pink and orange wrist warmers

Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either. Elizabeth Zimmerman I love wearing wrist-warmers when I sit by the computer and write blog posts. My hands often gets really cold, and even with a thick sweater it’s the fingertips (and nose) that gets cold in the winter. That […]

A Knitted kind of Crazy

A Knitted kind of Crazy

I canít understand why people are frightened of new ideas. Iím frightened of the old ones. John Cage I think spring is on the way. We’ve got daylight a lot longer now, the sun is out more and the Crocus in full bloom. But yesterday it was actually snowing (!) when I was out walking. […]

Knitted Neon Socks

Knitted Neon Socks

I am in love with neon colors, so when I spotted some neon yarn I bought it. This sock yarn has all of the neon colors: pink, orange, cerise, yellow & green – in the same ball of yarn. I started knitting a pair of socks for myself in May, finished them this summer and […]

Stricken kann süchtig machen

Stricken kann süchtig machen

The label of this yarn that I bought Friday says: Stricken kann sŁchtig machen! And if you’re a knitter you understand, even if you don’t speak German… Knitting can be addictive. Very addictive.

Checkered Wrist Warmers

Checkered Wrist Warmers

Truth be told I knit these with yarn from my stash, but the colour combination could’ve been inspired by this book I’m reading. It’s called Hello Kitty Must Die by Angela S. Choi. It’s a quick, funny read about a young Asian American woman who will go far to bury the Hello Kitty stereotype forever… […]

Another pair of knitted socks by yours truly! If you don’t knit already you need to start because there is nothing […]

This is mom’s knitting hands; I love love love this photo! She inspire me, and I inspire her. She has just recently started to knit socks, inspired by all the socks I’ve made! She even knit me a pair of yummy red and pink socks! I wear them all the time as the floor is […]

One week later I found it again

One week later I found it again

It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives. Oh no! I lost my my knitted cap on the commute train the other day! I thought I’d go into town and look for it at once, […]
