YlloTylls Knit-along Zebra Socks

The yarn shop in Uppsala (Yll o Tyll) was holding a KAL, making a pair of socks by making stripes by knitting from the inside of the ball and the outside of the ball. The only problem I had by making these was all the ends to weave in after and there are 14 ends!!! I also learned to make a short row heel and I did not like the progress of it but the fit is brilliant, so I guess I have to practise this a bit more..

Yarn: Schoppel-Wolle – Crazy Zauberball, Sandnes Garn – Sisu Solid
Needles: 2.25 mm (US 1), 2.50 mm (US 1½)

 

    

 

Fast & Easy Fingerless Mitts v2–Circular

I did get some yarn from my mother-in-law for my birthday so I had to make something out of it. I started with a yarn I never tried before but I loved the colour of it and that it had copper metal thread in it for some sparkle. So what can you knit out of a 50 gr ball that have 100m in it? I had no idea! So Ravelry to the rescue and there I found a fingerless mitten that was made in the same yarn and I have never made fingerless mittens before so this would be interesting to see if I could do it. I did! and I loved them and so did my husband and wanted a pair and another friend of mine ordered a pair as well.

The pattern is a free one and by Lisa Beamer Cannon (on Ravelry) and the pattern is called “Fast & Easy Fingerless Mitts v2 – Circular”.
