Can there be too many socks?


I finished a sock! I will have to do the toe part again though, it came out too pointy. But I finished a sock, and even with the pointy toe it is the most comfortable sock I have ever worn! This is very exciting!


Τελείωσα μια κάλτσα! Πρέπει να ξανακάνω τα δάχτυλα, μου βγήκε πολύ μυτερή η άκρη. Αλλά τελείωσα μια κάλτσα και είναι η πιο άνετη κάλτσα που έχω φορέσει ποτέ! Είμαι πολύ ενθουσιασμένη!

Yarn // Νήμα: Four Seasons Gründl Hot Socks

I knit that sock almost entirely at the university. And here's my other sock that I have been carrying around


Yarn // Νήμα: Four Seasons Gründl Hot Socks Dream

I love the colors, just perfect to brighten up a cold winter day.

Την κόκκινη κάλτσα την έπλεξα σχεδόν ολόκληρη στο πανεπιστήμιο. Και εδώ είναι η άλλη κάλτσα που κουβαλάω στην τσάντα μου. Λατρεύω τα χρώματα, θα μου φτιάξουν τη διάθεση σίγουρα τις κρύες μέρες του χειμώνα.


And... a new one: Red Delicious by Sara Peterson. I fell in love with this pattern from Knotions and now that I'm knitting it, it's even cuter than I imagined.

Και μια καινούρια κάλτσα. Το σχέδιο είναι το Red Delicious της Sara Peterson, από το online περιοδικό Knotions. Το ερωτεύτηκα το σχέδιο όταν το είδα και τώρα που τις πλέκω επιτέλους τις κάλτσες, είναι ακόμα πιο χαριτωμένες από ότι είχα φανταστεί.


I blame the weather. I've mentioned it's been cloudy and raining. There's just something about rain that makes me want to knit with wool.

I'm going to the yarn store today, I ran out of white cotton for the third dishcloth. Must stay away from the sock yarn. Although I won't make any promises ;)


Ο καιρός φταίει, είμαι σίγουρη. Με τόση συννεφιά και βροχή, θέλω να πλέκω μάλλινα όλη μέρα.

Θα πάω σήμερα να πάρω νήμα, μου τελείωσε το άσπρο που χρησιμοποιώ για το τρίτο πανάκι της μητέρας μου. Πρέπει να μην αγοράσω άλλο νήμα για κάλτσες. Δεν μπορώ όμως να υποσχεθώ τίποτα!

  1. What beautiful colours you have chosen for your socks.

    I have just had a three day course at University and could only knit in my breaks - such a shame, but with only 4 people in my class, I couldn't really risk annoying our lecturer!

  6. Hi Shortly Stitches! I didn't knit in class either, but waiting for a class to start is a good time to knit!

    Caffeine Girl :) I agree, can't wait to wear them!

    Nina, I love your comment! I knew all you knitters would understand! ;)

    Dayna thank you! I love the little apples and it's so much fun to knit them!

  7. Γαστεροπληξ έχεις απόλυτο δίκιο! (δικαιολογίες μου δίνεις τώρα) ;) Η κάλτσες με τα μήλα πάντως θα είναι πολύ ζεστές, επειδή έχουν δύο χρώματα σε κάθε σειρά, το νήμα είναι διπλό!

  10. I love the colours too. And the Red Delicious pair really does look delicious!

    I've been talking to some of my friends bloggers from different parts of the World and, apparently- this has been a very woolen summer for most of us, so far! :)))) I don't know if it has got to do anything with the weather but none of us seems to be ready to switch to cotton yarns despite the temperatures. :)
    This rainy Balkans forthnight has certainly made me knit wool a lot! :)

  11. Δημιουργία πράγματι! Αν συνεχίσω έτσι, θα έχω πολλά ζευγάρια το χειμώνα! Οι άσπρες και εμένα μου αρέσουν πολύ.

    Εύα σε ευχαριστώ πολύ! Χαίρομαι που σου αρέσουν!

  12. Maja hi! Very interesting! Although it is getting hot here again, I want to finish the socks I started, so I'm still knitting with wool ;)

  13. :)))) Before you know it- we'll be knitting heavy woolen socks on beach! (A great way to officially become grannies!) :D No more simming- just soak your legs in water and cast on. :)))))

  16. Maja, I love your idea! I think I need to get one of those little folding chairs for the beach! That would be perfect!

  20. Hello
    Just popped over from Ravelry.
    What's the name of that yarn? The colours are beautiful!! Problem with socks, I get so excited about finishing one then depressed when I realise I have to do it all again..and the same size!

  21. Hi Jude! The yarn for the apples? The white yarn is Katia Merino Baby; the red and green are both Grignasco Flavia Baby (it's a 4-ply merino). I know what you mean, that's why I've started so many socks, I get tired of looking at the same colors all the time!
