What are you knitting right now?

2018 K Kapur socks 1.JPG

I do most of my knitting during the winter months. This winter I have been busy with a few accessories for gifts. Now I have just finished a pair of socks, designed by Kirsten Kapur in the Mystery knit of the year. I really like her socks - this is the second pair I am knitting and these I keep for myself.

I am also working on a large shawl which is a double knit according to an intricate pattern from a 2015 Vogue magazine that hopefully will give me "wings". It is quite detailed and I have a copied page of the pattern to make sure that I follow the right row, or my shawl will not be able to "fly" in the end.

It is now two years ago, I started to knit a square a month inspired by a monthly blog from the pages you are reading right now. I thought that 2 years with 12 squares would be enough, but since I knit each square quite small (20x20 cm) I still have some way to go.

Precisely one year ago, I uploaded this photo with 13 squares in total. Today I have 28 squares in total; they picture the past two years in knits where I have been walking in the world. One more year and a bit, I think that I have a nice history book covering a few years of my traveling life.

This weekend’s forecast is mostly knitting, with a chance of wine.

The past three years in knit

In 2017 I managed to finish off some projects, although I always seem to have something waiting in the queue. Here you have some of the gifts made last year, now with happy new owners:

OK. A few scarfs I kept for myself!

During 2016, I managed to finalise a few knitted things. Here are some examples:

Here are a few examples of my knitting projects in 2015.
