my first crocheted sock


yesterday I have finished my first chrocheted sock:

I have crocheted it in size 42/43 using a needle no. 3. That is a bit bigger than I needed but the sock is still a bit too narrow. Ok, it is wearable but the next pair has to be a bit bigger.
Fortunately  I have some other yarn in stash for testing another pair of socks (after I have finished the first pair of course).

A letter from overseas

Hi @ll,

today I received a letter from Canada with some nice goodies:

Cynthia has sent me these cute fabric labels. It is her own design and she has an amazing talent in that.

I follow her blog just round about two years now and I am still impressed of her creative work.
These labels are available on spoonflower, where Cynthia already has won the weekly fabric design contest twice ( and I am really sure that she will win some other).

Cynthia, thank you so much for this great surprise :).


At the moment I am working on crocheted socks. I will show you a picture when half of the work is done. They seems a bit small although I have choosen a bigger size than needed.


To my SMS winners: I hope you have received your prizes. I know I have sent them a bit too late (sorry for that), but I was ill and we had also a huge price reduction on the shipping costs on 1st January.
