Shawl Frosty Rosebuds. Külmavõetud roosinupud.

Frost can create such wonderful patterns: delicate branched patterns of fern frost on windows or tiny white ice crystals on leaves, grass and wires. The Frosty Rosebuds shawl pattern is inspired by frost bitten rose buds in late autumn, when some of the petals turn brown and wrinkled and some petals are still colourful. At the coldest time in the morning, when the sun is rising, all world seems to be covered by fragile white crystals. But the most beautiful is frost on the tips of rose petals.

Some designs just come together by themselves, the yarn, the pattern and an idea, all fell in place quite fast.

Mõnikord läheb uue disainiga kergelt, asjaolud lihtsalt langevad kokku. Otsisin üleminekuga sokilõnga salliks. Need värvid meenutasid pakasest näpistatud roosasid roosiõisi. Samal ajal kudusin Pistilistest Koekirjadest oma tekilappe ja vaatasin, et mustreid kokku pannes meenutavad need jäälilli aknal. Natuke "säbru" külmavõetud õienuppudesse, ja nii see muster kokku tuligi.

Get ready for sock-knitting season! Valmistu sokikudumise hooajaks!

I have an amazing offer for you!

Not to forget that Socktober is approaching fast. Knit all three eye-catching slip-stitch mosaic sock patterns. The patterns might look complicated but the beauty of mosaic cables is, that pattern knits up using just one of the strands at time, no need to carry both yarns along.

Walking on Clouds Socks. Veelkord sokkidest.

I re-published the Walking on Clouds Socks pattern. The lace is charted and now it's written out as well. The pattern got tested one more time. Look how many versions I've knitted! Lilac was the very first pair, I changed the lace pattern a bit later. I even tried stripy cuffs but ripped them off.
Which pair is your favourite? 

Sokimuster sai täiendust, sest leidub kudujaid, kes skeemi asemel armastavad "regivärssi". Uuesti testitud ka, sest mine sa tea, ma pole ju spetsialist "regivärsi" alal ;)
Niipalju kordi pole ma üht sokimustrit varem kudunud. Eksperimenteerisin ka triibulise soonikuga, aga see läks siiski harutamisele.
Milline on sinu lemmik sokipaar?
