Anu's Stocking


After reading Margene's post on Roositud I knew I had to try it out for myself. I had always thought it was simple embroidery, but now that I know it's a knitting technique, I'm all for it!

I'm doing Anu's Stockings from Folk Knitting in Estonia. I decided to do them cuff-down because I was feeling rather nostaligic. Never to leave a good pattern untouched though, I've decided to change up the colors and do something more fun. I have the other 2 colors picked out and I'll hopefully be able to show them to you by week's end (I don't get much knitting time during the week and I still have that birthday scarf to finish by Wednesday).

I have high hopes for these socks. I'll be teaching another sock knitting class in February and I'd love to wear them to the first class.

That pink looks totally fun! Can't wait to see the other colors!

I love the idea of something that looks like embroidery, but moves like knitting and is done while you go. Smart folk, those Estonians.

Those socks are great. Can't wait to see the other colors.

Good luck with the birthday scarf knitting.

Oh Jody! I can't wait to see them with the Roositud done! Love the color you chose, too. If you need any help, please let me know.

Pink socks... oh so gorgeous. And I like that pattern too. Can't wait to see what colour your teaming it with.

I love the technique myself a lot. And by the we, in Estonia both ways have been equally in use - embroidery and while knitting. I've used both...
Me as an enthusiast of folk art just love to imagine people far from Estonia knitting Estonian kind of socks ;) Good luck with it! :)
