An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Right, I've finished one Anelmaiset sock. It turned out that my 35 times round the niddy noddy was stingy, I would've run out of dyed yarn if I hadn't used a lot of natural in the foot part.
In the original pattern, the flowers and leaves are crocheted, but that won't do for a knitting competition. I had a look on Ravelry and found hundreds of patterns for knitted flowers. For the flower I used a tutorial by Julie Taylor. The leaf pattern is adapted from a pattern on Cyntergomes.livejournal.com. The original is much too big for my purposes, so I knitted it until I had figured out the principle involved and then I made a smaller version.
