Soap in socks

InspirationPosted by Ann Helen Fri, April 10, 2009 19:21:42

When searching for a pattern in Ravelry to do some spiralling socks for my Tigertubes, I saw this photo, and thereby came across this website:

I think it's a fun and brilliant idea and will try knitting them of some leftover yarn. Although I mainly use liquid soap; these are soooooo cute they will look good in any bathroom - especially with matching colors smiley

Cat Bordhi

May I introduce Cat Bordhi's website: www.catbordhi.com since I think she's the Queen of Moebius (apparently) and other techniques.

Tutorial on getting a grip and start on the Moebius techinque: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVnTda7F2V4

She's also using other techniques that are not so common in Scandinavia, I think? She introduces the technique of knitting socks and similar items on two circular needles. Tutorial part1 is found here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=RybPvCNfrT8
Tutorial part 2 is found here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSv6bdj7pvg&feature=related

More information and books can be obtained from her website.

A very useful website with inspiring patterns, links, etc. I am knitting my first Moebius, and it is both fun and easy once you get the hang of it!
