Knitting update

Is there a greater joy for a knitter than to see the project emerging in front of his/her own eyes? ^^

Here is the latest picture of the Mameluke socks I'm knitting as a commision for a friend - I finished both leg parts and done one heel. Today he is visiting us and he'll try them on, and I hope they'll fit!

Apart from knitting I've been sewing like mad for the last week or so, because we are attending a Viking event next weekend and I decided to finish some old projects: I made a linen bag for myself, and I'm still working on a dress for myself (all hand stitched) and a pair of naalbinded socks for Robert. Photos probably after the weekend.

The weather has been beautiful for the last couple of days and we spent last Saturday on my parents' allotment. On the way back home we were stopped by a neighbour lady who gave me three gorgeous peonies from her garden! *^v^*


  1. Those socks are amazingly intricate. I hope they fit too.
    Don't you just love peonies? They're so pretty.

  2. The socks are stunning. They are like a work of art. I bet your friend will be very pleased.

  3. Oh such pretty socks!!
