Katniss Everdeen Charity Socks

I made these very large socks and will send them off to Bend Oregon Community Services who distribute to the homeless. Hopefully the reinforced toes and heels will make them last a bit longer.

Yarn is from my favourite online yarn supplier.

Charity Socks


I'm very pleased that I'm getting better at reinforcing. Check out my Ravelry Project for details.

I found the yarn buried in my stash that dates back prior to my departure to Australia in June 2012 for the big circumnavigation.

New Socks for Deb

My friend is very fond of pink. Socks wear out quickly and it's winter again and she's just had a birthday so let's hope they will be a good fit for her and not a disappointment (ie too small or too tight)

The pattern is called Temperance from Ravelry.

The yarn is Light of Love from my Favourite online yarn store

I've been working on a method of using two strands of yarn knitted separately (bit like mosaic knitting) to reinforce the heels and toes by using a scrap yarn. I'm hoping to improve the durability and longevity of socks.

Baby Jacket

I don't usually make anything except socks. Our friends Barbara and Seb recently had their first child hence an easy jacket.

My latest pair

This great yarn was from My favourite yarn shop and made up into great socks. I don't yet know who these are for but I like the side panel I made. See my Ravelry page.
