Lately I have been dyeing some one-of-a-kind colorways on my sock yarn BFL-Steps.
For socks you only need 1 skein and it’s always fun to knit – and wear! – a pair that is completely unique.
Take a look at my two latest OOAK- sock yarns here. You can find more in the webshop. Now, I’ll go and knit some special socks for myself..

“Uncle Kurt” on BFL/silk-blend
This is the November ’13 Fiber Club color way. Named “Uncle Kurt” because of its manly colors. I can clearly envision a subtle, yet quite lively, scarf (or even a sweater) created out of this fiber, the perfect handmade gift for a dear uncle, grandfather, son or husband.
The GarnGalleriet Fiber Club is well established by now and has loyal members/subscribers. They receive a new color way each month and I find great pleasure in creating (hopefully) pleasing club-packages.

After knitting the mittens for my daughter, I decided that I would make a pair for myself, but with a different cable pattern and in a new-to-me yarn. After all, it was October, and the mornings were getting a bit chilly.
Now it’s already November, and I’m sure to keep my hands warm in these cabled mittens:
- Cabled mitts in Malabrigo Silky Merino
The pattern is up for sale in my webshop. Danish version only, for the time being.
The yarn is also to be found in my webshop. Malabrigo Silky Merino is a wonderfully soft singles yarn, 51% merino wool and 49% silk. Knits on needles 3,5 to 4 mm. There are 17 beautiful hand painted semisolid color ways to choose from!
The cable pattern was easy to knit.
I have used the color named “Jupiter” for my mittens, and I used only one skein.
Winter is approaching. Leaves are falling now, and it is getting colder. The motherly urge to keep my offspring warm and cosy has resulted in these cabled mittens:
My teenage daughter is very happy about them! I have made a pattern to download (in Danish only, for the time being) – check out the “pattern”-tab in the top menu.
The mittens are knitted using two strands of Opus BFL yarn. Wonderfully soft and warm, and a quick and easy project!

I love them all.. All of my semisolids, or monochromatic, colorways. I have added more new colorways over the summer and now there’s more than twenty of them.
I even updated the page here to show all the monochromatics. Take a look, you’ll find the tab in the top menu.
I’m happy to take orders, you know.. The colors can be dyed on my yarns or my fibers – your choise! Please also take a look at my webshop to see what’s on the shelves right now.
The monochromatic colorways – most of them..
I added a sixth section to the shawl, because I had plenty of yarn and I really would like the shawl a little wider than the 80 centimeters. The extra band gave me a finished width of 130 centimeters, which is a perfect size, I think!
My Citron looks like this:
I like it very much!
“Citron” is a beautiful shawl by Hilary Smith Callis. It is not a new pattern, but published in Knitty Magazine, in the Winter 2009 issue.
I have been eyeing this shawl for ages, and a few months ago I even spun some merino/cashmere lace yarn with Citron i mind.
The beginning of “Casino Citron”. A very pleasant knitting project
In the Danish Spinning Guild, Spindeforeningen, we are going to have a SAL/KAL next month, and I am to “host” it, or kick start it.. So I thought it might be a good idea if I was a little ahead of things, and cast on for my “Casino Citron” last week.
But first I translated the pattern into Danish, and asked permission from the designer to publish the Danish version. Through Ravelry the pattern is available in I think at least 10 different languages, but Danish is not one of them..
Hilary has now kindly given me permission to publish the Danish version in my blog and link it to the Ravelry database – yay! Not that the English pattern in any way is difficult to follow or understand, but my guess is that some of our guild members will be reluctant to work from directions given in English.
So, thank you very much, Hilary!
- I’ll set up the pattern page very soon, but first I’m going to grab some dinner: veggie lasagna, mmmm..
