FO's :: Daleks, Creepers and Marius


It's been a while again. My blogging mojo is low... I think it has to do with shorter and darker days - my mood seems to get a bit low as well during these dark months. But I'll try to pop in here more often :) I have been knitting now that my arms doesn't hurt as much as they did. So there are things on the needles I'll have to tell you about soon and some fo's.
First is a pair of Marius socks. They are knitted in a heavy wool yarn which makes them big enough to wear as a second pair of woolsocks, which I often do during winter when my feet are cold.
Winter is here with and we've gotten a little bit of snow. Enouh for the kids to build a snowman and a snow lantern last night. But winter also means I can wear all the wool. I'm wearing my Nancy cardigan today while I snuggle on the sofa knitting.


And someone decided to be in the photo ;)

  1. Very nice projects, Hege! I'm glad your arm has recovered. Have you ever tried using a light box in the winter months? They can really help with the low moods that come with the lack of sunlight.

  2. That Dalek hat is great! Stay warm.

  3. I always love your projects! The socks look so warm and cozy and I know several people who would love the Dr. Who hat. :-)

  4. You look so cozy. These are fun color work projects.

  5. Everything looks great. It's about woolens time here, too. I can't decide if I'm dreading it or looking forward to it!

  6. LOVE the socks - they look so cozy!

    And that minecraft hat is fabulous - I might have to make some for my sons. :)
