Fisrt pair of socks done & leaf rubbings

First of all, thank you for all your comments on Endre's asthma! We really appreciate it!! Things are getting better, and we are going to see the doctor again next monday.

socks for my sister1

I have completed the first pair of socks in Socktober :) These are for my sister. She wears out her socks in a swift, so I have knitted the heels and toes with double yarn to prevent it. I really like the colours in this yarn - they harmony so good together. Luckily I have a couple of more balls, so I can knit up a pair for myself too :)

We are having another fall storm today, so there have been some indoors activitys today.
Even though there is hardly any leaves left on the trees now, we managed to pick a few and made leaf rubbings ;)


And I have received this award from Monica - thank you so much!


  1. cute socks! and thanks for the comment on my blog. i think i'm in love with variegated lamb's pride now :).

  2. Fine sokker! Tror du gjør lurt i å bruke hvitt/ensfarget garn til mysteriesokkene. Mønsteret forsvinner garnet jeg har valgt.

  3. The socks are so cute! That color combination is one of the prettiest I've ever seen.

    Hope your little one will be feeling better........

  4. Flotte sokker!
    Ser du også har fått KnitPicks harmony-pinner, jeg har nylig kjøpt ett sett strømpepinner (6 pinner i settet faktisk!) og de er en drøm å strikke med :)
    Håper det går bra med Endre og astmaen!

  5. Hei, så koselig blogg du har! Takk for at du tok en titt på min.
    Morsomme sokker da! :) Deilig med litt fargesprak nå på høsten.

  6. Kreativiteten flödar hos er!
    Grattis till de fina stickorna du vann!

  7. congratulations on the award! Love the stipy socks with the blue trim. Very nice little touch! Leaf rubbings is a wonderful idea. Thank you!

  8. Oh leaf rubbing...great memories of doing that when I was younger. Totally forgot about it. What a fun thing I can do with my kids! Thanks for the post.

  9. Well done on the socks!

  10. Hege, you are a wonderwoman! You knit so fast and always have something amazing to do with your kids. How long does it take you to do a pair of socks? You seem to whip them out in no time at all!

  11. Å.. Hadde heilt gløymt at vi gjorde sånn før! Kanskje eg må ut å samle høstblader, eg óg ;)

    Flotte sokker, lurt med dobbel tråd på hæl og tå!

    Ha ei fin veke!

  12. Hi! I am finally to where I can come visit again! I was reading over everything I have miss--WOW! Eirin's sweater turned out fantastic!! All of your knitting is wonderful!

  13. Nice socks!

    The drawings of the children look wonderful!

  14. hallo! i love that you have put on pictures of the babies' leaf rubbings - i am obsessed with children's drawings, i think they are so beautifully confident and naive, with markmaking most adults could only dream of...i try to emulate kids' drawings in my work all the time, with varied success. your childrens' work is lovely. and it really links to some of your socks!
