Tits out Collective socks





O, it's such a rainy day today! Sometimes the sun shines and within a couple of minutes it's raining again. So it's Monday, start of a new week. And they say the week ends with some sunshine, so lets hope that will happen!

The photo above shows some lovely socks I made a month ago in Denmark. Well actually I started with the first sock at home and finished it. I took the yarn and the pattern with me in the car for sock number two and I finished the sock on the second day when we were traveling (car knitting). I'm so happy because they fit so well. The pattern is called Mierentietjes by Heleen Kok, Plakhuis on Ravelry. You can find the pattern here. If you bought the pattern, she donated 50% to Pink Ribbon. The pattern was a part of the Tits Out Collective started by Countessablaze. It was such a good idea from Countessablaze to start the funding and letting idiedyers and pattern designers take part in it. I really wanted to support a charity for the Tits Out Collective and I choose two Dutch charity options by buying this pattern and buying the yarn from The Fox and the Knight, colorway Baboonbut (I love that name!!). The yarn is so soft and beautifully dyed! It was a joy to knit them. And she donated a percentage to Stichting Aap. A charity for monkeys.

Well and this week? Well I hope I can finish the Close to You shawl by Justyna Lorkowska. It's been a w.i.p. for more then a half year, so time to finish it. The yarn I use is form Treliz. I bought it when she was selling on the Dutch knitting/crochet festival in Zwolle (Breidagen). And I want to start with making a jeans. I already drafted the pattern at my own size and made a fitting model, washed the fabric and ironed it. So now I have to cut out the fabric en start sewing. I hope I can work on it this week or in the weekend, when I have time.

I hope you'll have a lovely week and I might post again this week and otherwise next week!
