There has been some knitting going on


I have knitted quite a lot through the winter, come to think of it :-)
I find that I love best to knit wool socks and dish cloths - they are not to big and heavy, and is easy to finish.
I have a stash of yarn too, but not to big, so far :-)

Here is a selection:

The socks above and below are from
Tantulltuss - I love her designs!
The pair above I have myself, the pair below I gave away as a gift for someone special.


These socks I gave to May Britt for Christmas:
The pattern is free on Ravelry -
Blueberry Waffle Socks, and the yarn is from Arne & Carlos, variegated wool.
There is a Norwegian translation available


These fingerless mittens I used a lot - the pattern is  Belyse on Ravelry.
I will make more of these, with thinner yarn - like baby yarn or thin sock yarn.
I was so cold this winter due to some health challenges, so I wore these fingerless indoors too.


I knitted countless dish cloths, for my own use and for gifts.
The pattern Bird Cherry is available for free, along with a lot of other nice patterns at Bittamis Design For Strikkelystne on Facebook. You have to be a member of the group to get the free patterns. I knit my dishcloths in 100 % cotton yarn.


The biggest finish was this off-white jacket - I used it a lot. It is knitted from the top down.
I will knit myself another one in a while. It was fast and fun to make.
I have shrunk and need a size smaller.
Pattern from Ravelry again, Falling Leaves Cardigan

Wishing you a lovely day,
wherever you are!



  1. the socks look many great wools with great colours to make them in.........

  2. Wonderful your socks...I also knit quite a bit this past winter...I know mittens for my grandchildren...and as they always seem to lose one mitten I have started knitting three of the same instead of just two lol 😊

  3. Oh my! You have been a very busy knitter. I love all your socks. I am too scared to knit socks as it scares me using 4 needles. I love fingerless gloves and have knitted a couple of plain pairs but yours are absolutely gorgeous with the design. Lovely dishcloths to make washing up more of a pleasure and your cardigan is also lovely. Wow! You put me to shame LOL.

  4. what an excellent sock knitter you are, unfortunately cannot knit much these days due to aching finger joints

  5. Thanks for sharing your beautiful knitwork, very inspiring! It made me buy the glovepattern on ravelry ;)

    kind regards, Conny

  6. Love the socks - they are gorgeous!

  7. So many beautiful creations! I particularly love the fingerless gloves: so charming! I wish you a good day (from Québec). :-)

  8. Your knit projects are beautiful! I knit dishrags too but very simple designs. Knitting is a nice change of quilting or applique.
