Winter break

Animal tracks

The kids have their winter break this week, and we have a wonderful weather! So we've spent hours outside each days :) Although I long for spring, these winter months we have ahead of us now are the best. With the sun warming and lots of skiing and sledding to look forward too ;)

raggsokker

Inbetween knitting on the elephant sweater, I knit up my stash of raggsock yarn. I casted on for my 5th pair last night. So I'm ahead of my x-mas knitting ;)

  2. Christmas Knitting!!!? You know I am just jealous right? I want to be ahead for my Christmas knitting also. I have been knitting a lot, but not finishing anything. I have more WIP's laying around right now than I have ever had. I just feel so restless I guess. Thanks for the ((hugs)). I need it!

  4. Hello. I have been reading your blog from time to time and just waiting for the opportune time to comment. This seems to be the time.... do you do anything to reinforce the heel of these socks?

  5. Cathy: No, I don't reinforce the heel. The yarn is 80 % wool and 20 % polyamid.

    And it's great to meet new readers :) Now I'll head over to your blog ;)

  7. Du burde fått en medalje for imponerende sokkestrikking.
    Er før øvrig mer enn litt spent på elefantgenseren.

  8. Så hendig å vere i gang med julegåvane allerede! Har strikka eit par eg óg, men er ikkje begynt på sokkane enno.. :)

    Herleg snøbilde, forresten. Her fêr snøen like fort som den kjem, så det blir ikkje mykje tid til å nyte den..

    Ha ein fin kveld!

  9. Härlig bild och härliga sockor.
    Min son vill att vi ska åka till Norge i sommar, så nu ska vi leta boende. Fast så långt norr som till Tromsö kommer vi nog inte...
