SOKKEBOKS/ SOCKBOX




 Det er mange som har laget seg en sokkeboks hvor de skal samle sokkene de strikker i løpet av året, og da skal det helst bli minst 12 par sokker.  Mange er jo med i sokkesamstrikker, slik som Garnbutikken Fortunas 12i 20, og Cias bods Freesock 2020, Brit strikkenerds tykke sokkersamstrikk. Jeg tenker litt utenfor boksen 😊, jeg har en sokketine! Og jeg hopper litt hit og dit med samstrikk og sokker jeg velger selv. Denne tina er gammel fra min fars slekt. Da faren min ble uføretrygdet lærte han seg blant annet rosemaling. Og han har rosemalt denne, det kan kanskje diskuteres om den egentlig burde vært bevart originalt. Men jeg er i hvert fall glad i den slik den nå er. Det passer godt å bruke den til sokker. Da våre unger var små strikket moren min sokker og votter som hun la i denne tina etter hvert. Når vi var på besøk kunne ungene titte i tina og se om bestemor hadde strikket noen votter eller sokker som passet til dem. 

There are many who have made a sock box where they will collect the socks they knit during the year, and then there should preferably be at least 12 pairs of socks. Many people are involved in sock KALs, such as Garnbutikken Fortunas 12i 20, and Cias bods Freesock 2020, Brit strikkenerds thick socks. I think a little out of the box 😊, I have a sock "Tine" ! And I knit some socks here and some there in the knitalongs, and some sock patterns I choose myself. This "Tine" is old from my father's family. When my father was retired, he learned, among other things, rose painting. And he has rose painted this "Tine", it can perhaps be discussed whether it rather should have been preserved originally. But I love it as it is. It fits well to use it for socks. When our kids were little, my mother knitted socks and mittens that she put in this "Tine". When we visited, the kids could look into it  and see if Grandma had knitted any mittens or socks that fit them.

For my visitors from other countries, here is an explanation I found online about the Tine:  "The traditional Norwegian tine, pronounced "teen-ah",  is constructed of a thin piece of steam-bent wood that is laced together with some type of tree root, usually birch. The sides have two vertical posts cut with notches that are used to hold the lid on. Because of the snapping noise that they make when being closed, they are also called snap boxes. To open the tine, the side posts are gently pulled apart using the flex of the wood until the lid is freed and can then be lifted off.  They were used to store valuable possessions, grains, meat, or anything else that might need to be secure." 




Min sokkeboks-tine er foreløpig fylt med 20 par sokker, pluss et par til etter bildet be tatt. Noen har allerede blitt gitt bort. My sock box Tine is currently filled with 20 pairs of socks, plus one more after the photo was taken. Some have already been given away. 



Og her er det siste par sokker som ikke kom med på bildet. De er designet av Hanne S. Tøndel i strikkepodcasten Heimstrikka, og heter treffende nok: Heimgjort Jeg har strikket dem i Drops Nord i fargen rust. De var enkle og morsomme å strikke. Jeg liker dem veldig godt, de skal bli høstsokkene mine. And here are the last pair of socks that did not come in the picture. They are designed by Hanne S. Tøndel in the knitting podcast Heimstrikka  (Home knitted), and are  named: Heimgjort (Homemade). Well actually their pod is named after the place they live, which is Heim :)  I have knitted them in Drops Nord in the color rust. They were easy and fun to knit. I like them very much, they will be my autumn socks.

Garn: Drops Nord farge 11 rust 72g

Pinner 2,25mm

Oktobersokk i 12i20 




De har et nydelig flettemønster og hullmønster. They have lovely cables.









Trærne har så mange fine farger så en går ofte og ser oppover. Men det er også mye fint å se når en legger merke til de små detaljene på skogbunnen. Selv om fluesoppen er giftig er den vakker å se på. Ser nesten ut som en juledekorasjon! There are so many beautiful autumn colors now, and  often we look up at the colorful trees. But it is also very nice  when you notice the small details on the forest ground. Although this fungus is poisonous, it is beautiful to look at. Looks almost like a Christmas decoration! 


Og se så vakkert sola skinner gjennom dette lille bladet! And see how beautifully the sun shines through this little leaf!

  1. I love the idea of a sock-box. In 2014 I knitted lots of pairs of socks during the year, for family Christmas gifts- and then could not find them. I thought they had got lost when I moved house. They turned up the other week when I was sorting out a bag of fabric. I decided to give them to our local collection for the homeless. They were simple socks in random dye yarn - but I think those with cold feet will appreciate them whatever colour they are. I love the fall/Autumn colours in your forest...

  2. Your Rose-stencilled Tine is so pretty and all the socks that you made to fill it are lovely. I would have a hard time choosing a favourite.
    The last couple of years I've spotted just such a red mushroom as you have in your picture. This year I looked for it but it didn't come up.

  6. Your socks are lovely. We call the painting “rosemalling” on Your tine inthe U.S. My mother knitted over 200 pairs of socks for the Red Cross during WW II. I don’t have good eye-hand coordination for knitting, but I can quilt. I love wool socks so I do wish that I could. We have a prayer shawl ministry at my church and I have finished exactly one and that was in crochet. It is a little easier... keep knitting socks! Chicagogran
