MayDay socks done!


Done. And pleased. Fun and interesting pattern to knit, and not too many difficulties- exept for I ran out of yarn on the first toe-9 rounds to go...I ended up ripping from the ribbing, using the thread to finish the toe, and then make a neat bind off to the ribbing. Or at least it should have been neat...If you click on the picture you get it bigger, and then you'll see what I mean- just examine those two ribbings. I like the colour of them, and I like how the pattern shows up in a solid colour. I will be making a pair for myself too, but thought of using the same blue variegated that I used for "Sheri's Lace Socks" (a couple of posts back...haven't figured out how to link to that yet...too lazy)
I see now that I am going to brag about that tablerunner too-LOL! It is knitted by me for that table-our diningroom table, which we also use as a kitchen table. The size of it? 1.60m widex3.00m long, and oval shaped...The runner is 2 m long...I also made curtains for our kitchen window in the same pattern, found in the magazine" Familien". Those are the only curtains we have. We live all by ourselves-no neighbours close by, there is a road nearby, but no insight, and we have the most beautiful view from our livingroom windows, so I don't want to put curtains there at all! I think my mother-in-law is the one that is most uncomfortable about it.
I got a new book today, from a bookclub, James Patterson's "4th July". I know- it's probably not new- but I haven't read it- yet...I started it while eating dinner. I'm really not good at doing only one thing at a time, I read and eat, knit and watch tv, read and listens to the radio,knit when talking on the phone...blogging is done on it's own though,but then I might actually have to think!
Have a lovely day!

Ooh, beautiful socks, but of course I was distracted by the lace dresser scarf. I was wondering if you made it, and you answered that question. Your day sounds similar to mine. . .

Til lykke med dine sokker. De ser meget flott ud.

Og loberen er meget flott ogsa.

The runner is great. I like to knit/crochet with thread, even if I haven't done a lot of it.

Marit - You are a really fast knitter! I thought that I was fairly fast but you out knit me. LOL.
The socks are lovely and that table runner -- WOW! I have crocheted things like that before but I have never knit them.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I think I would prefer to chase sheep :-) I can't believe that you live in Norway! It is the country that I DREAM of visiting someday!! You do beautiful knitting! I've added your blog to ones I read regularly and will stop often!

That runner is very pretty! I was looking for a pattern for something like that for my table, and then my aunt gave me ones my grandmother had embroidered so I am just using that instead.

Fantastic socks and I can't see any problems with the rib. And by the way, Gratulerer med dagen. Hurra for Norge.
