There has been some knitting going on

I have knitted quite a lot through the winter, come to think of it :-)
I find that I love best to knit wool socks and dish cloths - they are not to big and heavy, and is easy to finish.
I have a stash of yarn too, but not to big, so far :-)

Here is a selection:

The socks above and below are from
Tantulltuss - I love her designs!
The pair above I have myself, the pair below I gave away as a gift for someone special.

These socks I gave to May Britt for Christmas:
The pattern is free on Ravelry -
Blueberry Waffle Socks, and the yarn is from Arne & Carlos, variegated wool.
There is a Norwegian translation available
here.

These fingerless mittens I used a lot - the pattern is  Belyse on Ravelry.
I will make more of these, with thinner yarn - like baby yarn or thin sock yarn.
I was so cold this winter due to some health challenges, so I wore these fingerless indoors too.

I knitted countless dish cloths, for my own use and for gifts.
The pattern Bird Cherry is available for free, along with a lot of other nice patterns at Bittamis Design For Strikkelystne on Facebook. You have to be a member of the group to get the free patterns. I knit my dishcloths in 100 % cotton yarn.

The biggest finish was this off-white jacket - I used it a lot. It is knitted from the top down.
I will knit myself another one in a while. It was fast and fun to make.
I have shrunk and need a size smaller.
Pattern from Ravelry again, Falling Leaves Cardigan

Wonderful knitting...love your socks...I also knit quite a bit this past winter...I know mittens for my grandchildren...and as they always seem to lose one mitten I have started knitting three of the same instead of just two lol 😊

Oh my! You have been a very busy knitter. I love all your socks. I am too scared to knit socks as it scares me using 4 needles. I love fingerless gloves and have knitted a couple of plain pairs but yours are absolutely gorgeous with the design. Lovely dishcloths to make washing up more of a pleasure and your cardigan is also lovely. Wow! You put me to shame LOL.

So many beautiful creations! I particularly love the fingerless gloves: so charming! I wish you a good day (from Québec). :-)

Your knit projects are beautiful! I knit dishrags too but very simple designs. Knitting is a nice change of quilting or applique.
