I feel like a good person sometimes, especially when I've been working on my charity knitting. Last weekend I finished another pair of preemie socks (that makes 4 pairs altogehter) for the ongoing charity and some mice to be sold for the benefit of the local animal shelter "Tierheim Essen" They now just need to be felted and filled with a jingle bell and some stuffing.
For Sukkasato-KAL and at the same time for charity I have made some more socks.
One pair of preemie socks, and one pair in children's size - maybe 3-4 years old? The kid's sock pattern is my own, and I will propably write it up soon. It's nothing especially new, but I find them pretty.
So, for the Sukkasato knitalong there's finally something finished to show in - the children's lace socks (which I call Pretty socks - you can see what I mean) plus a teeny weeny pair of preemie socks for the German ongoing charity project at www.fruehchenstricken.de. I have to say that ball of Regia has been plentiful - three pairs of socks from one ball!
Next, some things I'm working on for Christmas and birthday presents for my family. So if you are family - don't look!
I joined another fun sock knit-along Sukkasato (that's Finnish for Sock Harvest) - which runs September and October. It's Finnish, and the sign-ups are closed, so don't feel bad if you missed it. However, I especially like the fact that children's socks count, and that people are encouraged to knit for charity. I have lots of sock yarn rests, which make perfect children's socks.
finished and sent off some Calorimetries and a cat bed to Ompelukerho . I got the Calorimetries' designers approval for making several of them and selling them for charity. The cat bed might be given as a present to an animal shelter (based on Princess Snowball catbed from S'n'B Handbook).
I hope they get some money for the animals with my knits!
I've been knitting some Calorimetrys as gifts, and hopefully I will be able to give some to Ompelukerho - women's action group for animal welfare - so they could sell them in the Christmas fairs. I am still waiting for the designers' answer, as I am not / no one is allowed to sell them without the designers permission.
