Lets dive right in ....

Thank you Ivana for inviting me to join this Modulong group! My first post will be about my Smoking Hot Socks. Over the last two weeks I've knit nothing but these socks, so I could write it up as a pattern ( you can find the pattern as a free download on my blog ). Now, I know I'm not the first one to do socks with mitered squares, there are lots of variations out there. But I wanted a toe up sock with the short row heel (jojo heel or boomerang heel). I'm wearing the prototype socks right now. It's the orange yellow ones. The blue socks will be for my husband, and the Trekking XXL # 100 will be for myself.

I've knit modular over the past year, in fact I think it's an interesting way to use the beautiful variegated yarns out there. I'm always on the look out for new designs in modular knitting, but try to make my own as well. Sometimes I think everything has been done already, but to my amazement people still come up with wonderful ideas! I sure hope I will be one of them. ;o)

I love modular knitting

I knit more than twenty years and I love to make my own designs. When I have seen modular knitting I fall in love because it gave so wide possibilites to create something really interesting and "different". I spent a lot of time browsing and trying to find something about modknit and then I decided to open a new blog to share my passion with world.
I hope I will find similar people to contribute to this blog. If you are interested, please leave a comment.
