I love the little white speckles in the green stripes. They add a lot of visual interest and whimsy!


I knit diamonds. That way something breaks up the stockinette - I do a column of diamonds - first one is reverse stockinette, second is an empty diamond and the third is seed stitch.

I have also pointed out to some that the ONLY reason to use expensive handpaints (like my beloved Anne) is so that you don't get totally bored while making your nth pair of socks.


You have some absolutely beautifully patterned socks. It is a shame to have to encase them in shoes and under slacks! Perhaps I will try one pair of wooly socks for myself...next winter. :-) My knit card is full right now.

I also enjoyed your notes on the yellow poncho for your niece. My niece received a pale pink poncho (but she is 25 years of age).


Me again, as I looked at your woven items after my first comment. I am thinking of getting a table loom in April as a b-day present. Could you drop me a note on the looms you use? It looks as if you have floor looms, but that is on my to learn list for 2005. Thanks again, Nora

Socks and small knits

    These are all handknitted socks and other small items. Most of these were knitted from my own handspun yarn. Click on an image for a larger picture and description, plus charts for some.

    (Most of the Celtic designs came from Celtic Charted Designs by Co Spinhoven, an excellent and inexpensive resource.)

  • Infant's Aran pullover
    Back in the dark ages (as in pre-1987), I used to knit sweaters. Nowadays, I rarely do, so I'll use this album to record some of what I have done and may yet to be.
