Last Friday I thought that I need some knitting for a drive to Ciechanow (2 hrs), so I finally decided to start the socks from a mysterious OPAL yarn (mysterious for me, of course, because I've never tried it! ^^). I took my 2,5 mm needles and cast on - I'm knitting them toes up, because I have no idea how much yarn I need for the over-the-ankle socks and I don't want to be left without the yarn to finish the second sock... So, when I reach half the yarn ball, 'll start the other sock. ^^
Here is the Monday morning stage of a sock #1:

It'll probably be the sole part, because the pattern changes are visible in the middle of the instep.

Today I've been to several second-hand stores and found some great colourful clothing! ^^ Just look at the vibrant shades of purple and orange, how they fit together - very inspiring for me!

It's all cotton and linnen in various forms.

And I decided to take a 4 month pledge not to buy any new clothing but just make them with my own hands (see: Wardrobe Refashion). Starting date is 1st August. ^^


  1. that is such a good idea. I'd love to try something like that but I can't seem to resist buying clothes.

  2. I don't have money for new clothes (they are usually grossly overpriced!...), but I have lots of fabrics and ideas, so I'm going to give it a try! ^^
