4 Pairs of Socks in 5 Days

I've been in a bit of a knitting frenzy. It all started from 2 innocent skeins of Novita santorini yarn
*
3 Times Santorini
*
Yeah.. First I knitted the pink-ish socks for myself, but then I felt the need to buy the two other colours that yarn comes in too, and knit my mom socks as well. For some reason her socks never last long (might it be because her feet are like sand paper..you didn't hear it from me!). Novita Santorini yarn is 100% acrylic and I knitted the socks with 3,5mm needles.

Progress In a Buss

I think I might be a little bit on the fast side when it comes to knitting. I casted on for the blue socks in a buss on the way to my mom's. And on the pic above is the progress in 2½hours of time. Not bad!

Oona's socks

My mom isn't the only one I knitted socks for. My niece wanted a pair of black and white socks, and I just happened to find two skeins of un-labelled acrylic yarn in a flea market. Talk about a lucky coinsidence. These are knitted with 3mm needles.

I took my new camera out for a spin last thursday. I was listening some awsome music and snapping photos. By a stroke of luck a a few of them turned out ok.

I also have a new crafty tattoo! But more on that once it heals a bit and I can get a desent picture.
