Socks

Hello everyone!

My March and April socks, made for me.

The first pair of socks I did follow a free design at Ravelry called Hermione’s Everyday Socks by Erica Lueder. A really nice design, I enjoy it very much and for sure I will used it more times.

Yarn: Retrosaria Mondim in the colorway 205 Burgundy Speckle (100% fine portuguese wool).
Needles: ChiaoGoo 2.50 mm 9″ (23cm) circulars needles from their Knit Red Collection and ChiaoGoo 2.50 mm 32″ (80cm) circulars needles from their Knit Red Lace Collection.

The second pair of socks I follow a free design called Rose City Rollers by Mara Catherine Bryner. They are very cozy!

Yarn: Rosários 4 Meia Print in the colorway 119 Spring Garden (70% merino wool, 30% nylon).
Needles: ChiaoGoo 2.75 mm 9″ (23cm) circulars needles from their Knit Red Collection and ChiaoGoo 2.75 mm 32″ (80cm) circulars needles from their Knit Red Collection.

My problem with socks is picking up stitches for the gusset shaping, I take so long and they look so messy… Maybe with practice it gets better…

Thank you so much for your visit! See you soon!

Hello, how are you? I hope you all are doing well.

Last year I started this piece and made the first row of the design…

Finally I did manage to finish this small piece.

A small and cute piece! I love the alphabet font!

It’s a free design by PCBDijon called ABC 2019.
Stitched on 38 count Dalarna Zweigart linen that I coffee dyed. I did use DMC threads.
