When I posted the pictures of my new jumper/leggings combo on Tuesday, I completely forgot to mention the other knitting that got displayed that night! It may only be a pair of socks, but they're Wollmeise socks, and I'm very pleased with them!
Again, this isn't the worlds best picture, but these, that stay up all day on my chunky calves, still stay up on the very tiny Tori, so will be perfect for the MODO show this March. They are the Twinkle Twinkle Little Socks, free to download on Ravelry. They are knitted from the toe up on 2.25mm needles. I worked them one sock at a time until the large amount of black pooling you can see above (not my fault, a result of the calf increases), and then two at a time to maximize the yarn. In total they took about 1.5 skeins, which as Wollmeise works out at 150g a skein, is about 225g.
Some other pictures have gone up from the other (better!) photographers in attendance I thought you may like to see these from UCL student Daniel Soh.
I love that last photo of the newly designed jumper I blogged about on Tuesday. In the background you can see another of my designs - the Cell Dress. This was shown at the MODO show last year (see here for more pictures and info). I've yet to publish the pattern because I need some decent pictures of the back of the dress, and although this isn't one, I love this photo too.
This dress is so wearable, despite first appearances! It's flattering, sleek, sexy, and yet totally comfortable. The dress itself is sheer, and as such is paired with a nude slip underneath. In this photo it is modeled by the lovely Annagiulia, whereas Rosa modeled this for me in the show. These girls have very different body types, and it looks great on both of them, I like to think it looks pretty good on me too, and I'm at least 2 dress sizes larger!
In other news, it's still snowing!
It's quite deep now!
And I spotted this guy eating a nut!
