Small things

Most of the time small things are cute just because they are small. Don´t you think so?

Finally I´ve finished Felix socks. I just forgot them and when found in my knitting/crochet basket under the crochet blankets I but them back finished them in one evening. I don´t know why it always takes such impulses for me to finish something and I nearly never stick to one project from beginning to end. I´ve always have so many things going on at the same time and get distracted very fast. But most things get done (somewhen) so it is not a great problem anyway.

Gummistiefelsocken (socks to wear under his rubber boots)

Pattern: free sock pattern from

Yarn: Wollmeise Sockenwolle 80/20 twin in "Indisch Rot"...I used about 30g

Needles: 2.5mm DPN

This is a very basic sock pattern but as the ribbing goes from cuff to toe at the front it is really stretchy and good fitting on the childs foot.

Valentine day inspired I´ve sewed a little pin cushion because my old one is always too full. Sewed out of scraps, tryed a little applique with zig-zag stitch and stuffed with scraps of wool. The whole project took about 10 minutes from start to finish and is already in use.


  1. Your right children's things are always cuter. the red socks are great, they look like they'll be perfect for warming up rubber boots.

    Love the pincushion, I just made one too.

  2. Little socks are fun to make, aren't they. I should make some more, because my 3yo loves his. Ribbing seems like a good idea.
