New sock design coming up

I just couldn't help my self any more - the sock yarn was yelling at me from the corner. I've been stubbern though and stucked to the heart sweaters. But only missing one arm, I just had to celebrate - and what's better than a little sock knitting. I've SO missed it .

After a couple of swatches - admitted I often knit 3 socks before I'm satisfied - I on the right track. And when I've reached so far, I'm not far from a new sock design.

How to knit flowers

Knitted flower

Briefly I believed I had made a brand new knitting pattern. But then I realised that the only difference was the cast on and an extra knitted row. But the result was pretty much different to my eyes.

How to knit the flower:

Cast on 51stitches with long tail cast on (Danish article). I have cast on with two colors which gives a really nice edge.

To make a two colored long tail cast on, you need two colors of yarn  . The main color over the index finger and the edge color over the thumb. The slip knot at the beginning is made of both colors, so you can get a neat and tight beginning. At the end the slip knot is dropped, so don't count it in while casting on.

Chestnut Snakes

Of course I couldn't let my chestnuts be. So here they are - this time with snakes eating chestnuts.

My husband wasn't completely satisfied when he discovered that I had put sweater project aside. But you know - you have to have plenty of knit work in progress. One piece is never enough, right?!
