Waldhaus part 2

Posted on

Last week I finished the second pair of my “Das Waldhaus” socks for the friend who took the brillinat pics for the pattern.

In this post I talked about dying the yarn for the socks. After knitting up both versions I prefer the lower socks with the sprinkles. This yarn was dyed using the ball-method.
The upper one is really fun to dye and would look a lot better with different colours then trying to do a gradient one. For a good gradient yarn one would need a lot more skeins and dyes then I used. But I’ll try my hands on that method again for a rainbow or really colourful yarn.

Frühling

This blog post is for the really nice lady today who was so impressed by my knitting I’m still smiling.

I was wearing my Blooming Garden Shawl in Wollmeise pure “Frühling”. As the colour means “spring” and it is rather warm here already for febuary I though it was the fitting piece for today.

I sadly don’t have any pics of me wearing the shawl but a funny one of it blocking:

In other news I finished a companion piece to my Waldhaus socks: Some mitten I knitted for the ravellenic games. Atm they are tested and will be available soon.
