Geometric unicorn + horse pattern

I have just released a new pattern in the geometric animals series. It's the Unicorn + Horse! I can't believe I have not made a horse earlier, since it's one of the animals most talked about in this family.

Knitting a little rabbit and socks, that look like a river

IT IS COLD OUTSIDE (AND INSIDE HERE). Brrrr, what started as a little bit chilly devellopped into icy cold. It's raining almost all day long and the wind blows against my windows for days. The only good that comes from that is knitting and knitwear to snuggle in. I'm currently knitting a fluffy scarf with an altered version of my Fast Forward pattern. No photos yet... But fluffy yarn is a first for me. Most things I start with such yarn end being frogged in the end... socken4 My special someone gets two pairs of socks from my mother every year- one for his birthday and one for christmas - and since that is covered I didn't bother in years to knit him some, too.

lion1 Whenever I feel a little bit stuck with my work (the I-don't-know-where-to-start-so-I-look-at-it-from-every-angle-everytime-of-the-day-and-wonder-what-to-do-first kind of stuck) I get back into the saddle easier by starting something new. Something that was lingering in my mind for months. I have to admit, that I was scared off by this geometric animal thing. I don't know why, but some nasty voice in my heard always told me I wasn't good enough at drawing to pull that kind of thing off. After reading a nice essay yesterday, I decided to take the (actually small) leap and give it a try. I absolutely love the look of animals looking straight in your eyes, so that was settled and the lion as a motif was sort of a courage thing, if you know what I mean ;)...
