Socks finished and other things



I finished knitting my socks. I am so happy!!! Finally my wish of knitting my own socks came true. I love them so much. To be honest, they are far from perfect, but I like to think that they are. The one thing that I have to work on is improving the heel turn. I got the pattern here at Ravelry.

Maybe I have sock mania but I have to tell you that I started another pair already. It is very addictive.


Also, I have a lot of new projects at the moment. I am experimenting with new materials and started crocheting a rug using pantyhose as a yarn. The process of cutting the hose is a little slow, but I must say that I like the result. My rug is getting an interesting texture.

Another material that I am trying on is wire. Crocheting a wire is a very complicated process. At least it is for me. I am using very thin wire and again it is a little difficult. I decided to make granny-square earrings, but it is going slowly. I used up lot of wire and didn’t do anything.  At the end somehow I managed to this granny square and now, I don’t have any wire to do another one. This project will be “sleeping” until I buy new wire.
