當做黑玫瑰襪子 Blackrose Wanna be Socks

第一次看到 Blackrose by Suzi Anvin 襪子時就很愛, 可是當時對打襪子怕怕, 更別提從上往下打. 其實到現在我還是不喜歡往腳趾打的打法.

上星期又想到黑玫瑰, 所以就改變成由腳趾往上打的來打一雙.


不知道是因為往上打的緣故還是線的關係, 看起來花樣就是不一樣. 不過原作的針碼是2,75mm有可能是因為如此而蕾絲花樣看得特別清楚.


線材: Jojoland Melody 襪線 2球
針碼: 2mm 80公分輪針一組

說實在的以前常常聽到人對這組襪線特別讚美, 我在減價時我也買了四球, 想說可以打襪子跟圍巾搭配甚麼的.

這幾天打下來的結果就是一肚子的氣, 鬆緊度太大, 線滑又容易分岔. 本來想說要換線, 後來想一想, 總是要將這些線消耗掉, 所以就繼續打下去了.

趁這幾天氣溫不高, 努力吧.

[新設計/New Design] TKA 2010-01 襪子

休息了一段時間的TKA 群織又開始了. 2010年的第一個群織作品是我設計的第二雙襪子.


線: OnLine Supersock 110 (顏色1159)
質材: 39% 棉, 40% 羊毛, 13% Polyamid, 8 % Elite

到目前為止只打到腳趾頭, 因為要將長披肩趕在回台灣之前打完並定型.

Sergey很喜歡掛單槓, 只要有槓子牠就掛坐

老爺想要將 Johann 訓練成品酒師 (哈哈~)

WIP – Catnip Socks [編織中]貓薄荷襪

自從進入夏天以來天天天熱, 冷峰批巾堆在腿上熱得很不舒服, 就將它擺到一邊織起這雙襪子.

Even since we entered the summer season, it’s been hot, hot, hot, and the Cold Mountain stole was too hot for me to knit, so I put it aside, and started Catnip socks by Wendy Johnson.

設計者/Desinger: Wendy Johnson
織圖/Pattern: Catnip Socks
線材/Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn 70% Wool/毛, 30% Nylon/尼龍
針碼/Needles: 2.25mm DPN/雙頭針 5支

這是我第一次用了很多人都稱讚的野呂襪線. 坦白說我並不覺得有多好. 顏色是不錯, 可是織起來的感覺普普. 線有粗有細, 從中心拉出來的捲到會像是打結, 常常要停下來拉.

因為看到打折而且又是我喜歡的顏色就買了兩球 (可織兩雙襪子), 我以後不可能再去買, 打折價錢我寧可去買前兩雙用的線.

This is the first time I use the ever so popular Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn. To be honest, I don’t think it’s as good as so many people claimed. The colours are nice, but I don’t like the feeling when knitting with it. There’s the thin and thick, and the yarn is so twisted when pulled from the centre, so often I have to stop to “un-tangle” it.

I bought two balls, because they were on sale and I like the colours, however, I will not buy them any more. With the discounted price, I would buy the Tofutsie or the Panda Cotton sock yarn.

Cold Mountain Stole Update 冷峰批巾進度

Just finished Row 5 of the 4th repeat (Chart A) so I thought it’s a good time to post a update.
剛剛打完 圖A 第四個重複的第五段, 可以先做個進度報告.

Weather has been getting warmer each day, so the progress is slow. However, it’s a cloudy and cooler today, I should be able to knit a bit more.
天氣漸漸的熱起來所以進度不快. 不過今天滿涼快的應該可以多織些.


W 16-1/4″ by L 15-3/4″/寬 41.5cm x 長 40cm

[WIP/編織中] 博拉博拉島襪 Bora Bora Island Socks

I am totally hooked on knitting socks, especially when the weather is getting warmer. Now that I am more familiar with the construction aspect of knitting socks, I am ready to knit with lace patterns.

The colours remind me of the beautiful Bora Bora Islands, hence the name. 🙂

我織襪子織上癮了! 尤其是現在天氣漸漸變熱織襪子不怕會有一堆羊毛在大腿上. 也對襪子的結構了解很多, 這回來打有蕾絲花樣的襪子

段染的顏色讓我聯想到博拉博拉島的亮麗色彩, 所以這是我的博拉博拉島襪. 🙂


作者/Designer: Wendy Johnson
織圖/Pattern: Waterfall Socks
線材/Yarn: SWTC Tofutsies 50% Superwash Wool/防縮羊毛 25% Soysilk Fibers/豆纖 22.5% Cotton/棉 2.5% Chitlin/貝殼 100g/425M
針碼/Needle Size: one set of 2.25mm DPN 雙頭針一組

I was worried that the lace pattern would not show well with the yarn, however, the simple lace pattern defused my worries.

原先挺擔心用斷染線蕾絲花樣不會很明顯, 可是簡單的花樣顯示的很清楚, 我也就安心的繼續織下去.

This is the first time I use this yarn, I must say, it’s a very pleasant experience to knit with Tofutsies. I am sure going to have to buy more for my future sock knitting.

我從來沒用過這款線, 織起來又輕又順, 織起來很愉快. 以後織夏天的襪子會多考慮用這組線來織.

[WIP] TKA 2009-04

So, I was happily knitting along the increase rounds, then I knocked over my coffee mug and it spilled all over my cardigan!! (That’ll teach me, coffee mug full of coffee and knitting projects don’t go togehter)

Anyway, I had to unravel and start all over. For some reasons, I just couldn’t get it going, and decided to change yarn, and the color is Royal Purple.


The actual color is a bit darker, more eggplant.

So far so good, I have now knitted 7 repeats of the lace pattern.

P.S. My old laptop died, I am using my daughter’s. New one has been ordered.

[編織中/WIP] TKA 2009-04 February Lady Sweater

決定用春香綠的線來打TKA 2009-04後昨天開始跟著翻譯好的織圖測織.

這可能有偷跑的嫌疑, 可是很多時候在翻譯時不覺得有任何不妥, 但是在邊看邊打時突然會發現翻譯的地方可以再修改成更能了解. 果然沒錯, 已經有兩處要注意的事項. 在此我不列出, 等e-mail發出時會一併寫.

目前打到[過肩加針段]的第14個重複. 這是最難熬的一步, 總覺得很無聊. 不過一旦打到身體蕾絲花的部位時就會比較要小心也會比較好玩.

織圖: February Lady Sweater
作者: Pamela Wynn
線材: 100% 美麗諾
針碼: 4.5mm/5.5mm 輪針與雙頭針
開打日: 2009-04-06

Regina也打得差不多了, 可以去參考一下. 這回真的要很謝謝Regina的即時通知, 讓我在翻譯時更加容易.
