Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy


Warm toes, warm heads

My daughter finished two hats for The Dulaan Project. Then we went and bought yarn for HER stash. So nice not to stash alone :-) She created her hats using Brown Sheep bulky on a knitting loom. And she is now busy working on another hat. I expect someday she will want to try knitting on needles. But she is very happy with her looms, just now.

My hats are doubled up worsted weight yarn with a stand of angora for extra warmth. The pinkish socks are Patons SWS yarn. I am thinking these will not wear well. The yarn is splitty and sort of annoying to work with. The red pair are DIWA and a strand or Opal. Works up to sort of sports weight/DK Thick and warm. The colors alone would keep you fired up.
Please excuse the quality of the pictures, it is 16 degrees outside and I was freezing. I am surprised they are all blurry because I was shivering with the cold.
I have packages to take to the post office, but not today. I can't even imagine living in temps of -45 degrees as they do in Mongolia, brrrrrrrrrr
The socks and the sweater I finished earlier are for CIC, the hats are for The Dulaan project and the mittens are for Mittens For Akkol

Cozy, homey knitting. Your daughter did a good job on her hats -- please tell her congrats from me.

I think you might be right about SWS socks, but they will make someone happy for a while, at least. I really like the red pair -- they look like lots of fun to knit and wear.

Sounds like you need someone to knit YOU some woollies these days.

I SO hear you on the SWS yarn. I started a needleroll project with it and was sorely disappointed with the way it kept splitting and also how it felt like it was unspun in areas. Very deceiving when you see how beautiful the yarn is. I like the way they came out though. The red socks are great and so are the hats.
You cant imagine living in colder temps adn yet I cant imagine living someplace that gets to 16. Guess that's why I live in FL

The SWS is a very pretty color though. LOL! I haven't left the house in three days because it is just too darn cold!
