Socktober 2009

This year for socktober I made one pair of socks out of leftover Trekking XXL. I used the majority of this yarn in 2006 . I loved they way the yarn looks and even though I have a lot of sock yarn lined up I decided to use the remaining 50 g for a simple pair of toe up two at a time 2x2 rib hourglass heel socks on size 1 Addies. Since there was so little yarn there is only a small cuff. They don't match at all but nobody sees these in my clogs.

Fabric Bags

I like my fruit lunch bag so much I made another for a friend. I like this one better. The fabric combo goes together a little better plus I made an inside pocket for pens and stuff.

I made the bag below as a gift packaging for a young friend of my son's. The main fabric is from IKEA. My son picked the yellow ribbon for the handles.
