Paper collages, music theme

 Music theme, paper collages. Above one book page 11 x17 cm. Like the old photo of the little boy who does his utmost to produce a sound out of the trumpet.
 Below a double page, 22 x 17 cm.
Love the photo of the violin player. I placed him in old Europe where the gypsies came from with their magical music.

Talking (about) socks

Here are the socks which I have knitted from rests of yarn. Leftovers from the shawls from last year.
The dark purple is
The pink yarn is
The light violet is Slackford Studio, LLC Bonny BFL Sock
All three super nice yarn!
I made the socks a little different from each other with the stripes.
Then people on my DD1's work have something funny to talk about ;-D
I guess they will look twice!
The fit perfect. I knitted them the same way as the candy socks from a week ago.
Shoe size 41 EU. I have used less than 100 grams.

Candy socks

Here is the second pair of socks for DD1.
I call them candy socks because of the color. It looks like candy to me :)
Made from Regia 4-ply. 75% wool 25% polyamide. Needle 2,5 mm. (US 1,5)
She is very happy with them, they fit perfect. I changed the normal pattern for socks a bit because she has a high instep. In stead for decrease every other round I decreased every third round.
And I made a reinforced heal so that she can use them also in her walking shoes.
Below the start of the third pair.
 I knit those of rests of sock yarn I have after the shawls from last year.

 I have made three shabby chic note books with a vintage fabric cover.
Size 6,5 x 4,5 ". 16 x 12 cm.
The old photo is printed on fabric. Not paper!
Every note book contains 12 pages.
All the pages have a little embellishment but enough place for you to write on.
The pages are white sturdy paper , easy to write on.
They are for sale in my Etsy shop.
A lovely present to a friends birthday.

Or maybe to yourself ;)
