Wonderful FOs: Parallel module socks

I  had a Knit-Along Socks through last two months with Knitters in Kakao talk.

Here are Wonderful 27 FOs.

Korean blog is here.

I published Parallel module socks pattern a couple months ago. I had to update pattern almost 4 times within first week after I published. It wasn’t easy to write sock pattern in entrelac  technique.  I’m very happy and glad that many knitters love this pattern. They choose this pattern without hesitation and finished wonderful socks. It’s very thankful.

Parallel module sock pattern on Ravelry is here.

 

brickwork socks

I did upload brickwork socks file on my Ravelry store this afternoon. I designed color-work pattern chart 2010. its reminds me old PC game Brickwork. That’s the reason I named the sock I made.

When I wrote first sock pattern, I felt so difficult to find a way to express how built heel and gusset. I had get some help from old scadnavian sock pattern book. It wasn’t my own voice. So, I published first brickwork socks pattern as free until 2013.
Former sock pattern is no longer aviable as free.

I rewrote brickwork socks pattern in new view. I added unique heel and gusset idea in new brickwork socks. Also I used real sock yarn this time.

A pair of pretty socks made my feet and soul are happy.

Enduring Stripes

I made this beautiful Enduring Stripes Socks through last Monday to yesterday. It’s designed by Cat Bordhi on New directions in Sock Knitting (Interweave 2016). I have some left over sock yarn and it isn’t enough for a pair. This is a good design to use them.

I used each 30g of KnitPicks Storll tonel ‘High tea’ and ‘Pearlescent’,
This is the first time to knit Sweet tomato heel. W&t seems unique. It’s almost same as shadow w&t.

지난 월요일부터 어제까지 약 4일간 이 줄무늬 양말을 만들었습니다. Cat Bordhi가 디자인했고 인터위브에서 2016년 출간된  New directions in Sock Knitting에 수록되었어요. 자투리실중 한켤레를 만들만한 양이 안되는것을 사용했는데 이 디자인은 그런 실들을 처리하기에 좋았습니다.

사용한것은 약 30g씩 남은 닛픽스의 스트롤 토널 두가지 색상  High tea(분홍)과 Pearlescent(진주)를 사용했습니다. 경사뜨기가 특이하다는 세조각웻지가 이어진듯한 힐 다른말로 스윗 토마토힐을 이번에 처음 해봤는데 . 거의 섀도우 랩앤턴이었어요.

 

 

 

I stated Sock Knit-Along with Korean knitters through kakao-talk. Kakao is a kind of messenger app.This Enduring stripses are not a KAL socks. But I need something to warm up.

한국의 니터들과(대부분 네이버 블로거) 메신저 앱인 카카오 톡으로 양말 같이 뜨기를 시작했습니다. 이 줄무늬 양말은 함께뜨기를 위한 양말은 아니예요. 시작하기 전에 무언가 워밍업 할만한 것이 필요했습니다. 이제 일상으로 돌아가서 일은 일대로 또 함께뜨기는 함께뜨기대로 잘 균형을 유지하려 합니다.

Happy Knitting!

Winter park shawl

I’m back from long long absence. I am reboot this blog and would love to introduce my new design. It’s hard to say ‘new design’ honestly because it’s published early summer this year. I made a sample through last winter and published on Knitscene Handmade issue. Title of this shawl is Winter park. It’s worked from side to side in one piece, beginning at the left side corner. After the full height of the shawl is reached at the center point, the edge is finished with a knitted-on edging.

오랜 공백을 깨고 돌아왔습니다. 이 블로그를 리부팅하고 저의 새로운 디자인을 소개하려해요. 엄밀히 새 디자인 이라고 하긴 어렵긴 해요.  초여름에 닛씬 핸드메이드 이슈 Knitscene Handmade에 수록되었거든요. 지난 겨울 샘플을 만들고 도안을 만들었고 이름도 윈터파크 Winter Park, 아주 멋지죠? 끝에서 끝으로 떠가는 삼각숄인데 이등변 삼각형의 구조를 가지고 있어 중심이 제일 높아요. 그리고 마무리는 니티드 온 에징 Knitted-on edging이라고 불리우는 떠가면 이어주는 형식으로 되어 있습니다.

Slipper Knit Along 룸슈즈 함께뜨기

Do you know the word room-shoes? Maybe it’s weird word if you are a Canadian or Native speaker in English. It means indoor slipper. I’m sure Japanese craft publisher create this word like pet-tel(Hotel for pet). Many Japanese craft books are translated in Korean language. Room shoes isn’t strange word anymore within Korean crafters. Anyway, Soel-ryu(She’s a Korean blogger) suggested Room shoes KAL two weeks ago. I’m so happy to get a chance to join the KAL group and I finished knitting a pair of ‘Room shoes’ this afternoon. Deadline is 12 December on GMT +9. It’s very clever and easy pattern. But I found a tiny mini errata. So, I will let her know. My sister’s visiting me. She just stay with me 5 nights and 6 days. But, She stopped over a couple months ago when she fly to Peru and we spend few days together. I’m very happy to see her again. Also, she’s model for room shoes and It will be hers.

룸슈즈라는 단어를 알고 계시나요? 영어를 모국어로 사용하는 사람들에게나 캐네디언들에게는 몹시 낯설고(좀 이상한) 단어일거예요. 이는 실내화, 실내에서 신는 슬리퍼를 말합니다. 확연컨데 일본의 실용서를 출판하는 곳에서 만들어낸 단어임이 분명해요. 마치 펫텔(애완동물용 호텔)처럼 말이지요. 많은 일본의 실용서들이 한국어로 번역되고 있기 때문에 룸슈즈라는 단어는 한국인 크레프터들에게는 더이상 낯선 단어가 아니예요. 

여하튼, 설류님이(네이버에서 블로깅을 하는 블로그 이웃님이세요.) 룸슈즈 함께 뜨기를 약 2주전에 제안하셨구요. 저는 기쁘게 참여해서 오늘 한켤레의 ‘룸슈즈’를 완성했답니다. 마감일이 한국시간으로 12월 12일이어서 조마조마 했어요. 매우 재치있고 쉬운 도안이예요. 아주 작은 에레타를 하나 발견했는데 나중에 설류님께 알려 드려야 겠어요. 동생이 지금 집에 와 있어요. 5박6일간 머무를 예정입니다. 두어달전에 페루 가는 길에 스톱오버로 들른적이 있었는데 다시 보게 되서 너무나 행복해요. 동생을 한번 더 보게 되서 정말 기쁩니다. ‘룸슈즈’의 모델은 동생이 했구요. 당연히 이 룸슈즈의 주인도 동생이랍니다.

Leftie 레프타이

Finally I finished knit Leftie. It’s done on Friday night and I did wear Saturday night. There are bucket list I want to do within end of this year. Finish Lefite was a #3 of my list. I wanted to take some pictures at the backyard but I had to work this evening and it’s getting dark so early these days. I put this on the living room floor. It’s slightly larger then original Leftie. Maybe It’s because I used one size larger needle than designer.

레프타이를 드디어 완성했습니다. 완성은 금요일 밤에 했고, 토요일 저녁에 잘 두르고 다녔어요. 올해 말까지 꼭 끝내고자 하는 머킷 리스트가 있는데 그중 세번째가 레프타이 완성이엇어요.  뒷마당에서 사진을 찍고 싶었는데 알바도 있었고 또 요샌 날이 금새 어두위 지네요. 그래서 거실 바닥에 펼쳐 놓고 찍었어요. 오리지날 보나 살짝 큰데 그건 아마도 원작자보다 한사이즈 큰 바늘을 사용해서 일거예요.

It isn’t easy to take selfie. I tried few times standing beside of wall. I bleached my hair almost 3 weeks ago. Birthday treat! I wanted to get a hair style just like one of X-men character Rouge. Maybe bleached spot is too large.

여하튼 혼자 어찌 사진을 찍어보려 애썼어요. 벽에 기대서서 난리를 했죠. 머리카락은 약 3주전에 탈색했어요. 생일 선물? 생일 기념? 생일 빵? 뭐라고 해야하죠? 여하튼 엑스맨에 나로는 로그처럼 하고 싶었는데 탈색 부분이 좀 넓은것 같아요.
