Here is a wais-coat I got ready today. Still a little big on E but he can wear it =) It's warm too. I like the colour on the yarn. And it was quick to knit.

Yarn: Novita Isoveli Colori
Needles: 5
Pattern: my own

Here is the top I made for my sister.. Got it ready yesterday...not quite in time for christmas but that's ok coz' we gave our presents yesterday coz' we did'nt see eachother before ;). Only thing it's a bit big for her =( NOT fun at all..buuhuu.. And she thought it does'nt look so nice like it was on the picture in the magazine.. The yarn was not so fun to knit with..not one of my favourites that's for sure!

Yarn: Novita Palma
Needles : 5 Pattern : Novita kevät 2005

I got a lovely present from my friend Sabine today =) Could not keep it til Christmas, had to open it right away. And I got these charms!! They are soooooo nice. So now I need to start stitching again so I can add them into the design. Just that the stitchbugg's been lost for a while ..but maybe it will come back now =) Thank you!!!!

Made these 3D pics. Was ment to be for the Christmascards but now they are ready for next year..lol =) It takes quite a time to cut all the pieces although the pics are so small. Think I have to find the others I have too coz' it was fun to make them =)

Have done a little knitting on the top too..but it goes so sloooowly..
Then my sister came over and I think she saw the knitting before I recognized it and did hide it..pheewww..Hope she does'nt got a clue what it was. She knows I have the yarn ready for the top coz' she asked me to knit it a long time ago.
Really hope to get it ready..

No niin..nyt päivä jo kohta pulkassa.
Suunnitteilla oli shoppailua ja sit neulomista kotona..ja ennen kaikkea hiljaisuutta!! Mutta suunnitelmiin tulikin muutoksia ja pikku E jäi kotiin. Joten ei niin paljon neulomista eikä hiljaista..VAAN..leikkimistä ja peuhaamista. Syöttämistä ja sottaamista. Hassuttelua ja naurua. Ihan kivaa sekin, muttakun toi joululahjatoppi tarttis saada valmiiks..
Muuten kyllä joulufiilis on pysytellyt kaukana..
Jospa neuloisi vielä vähäsen ennen nukkumaanmenoa..

So at last the present is ready and framed. Took me ages coz' it was so difficult and the first time I've put a stitching in a frame..not even sure how to do it but this has to be ok now..
Painted the frame and got the colour quite like the yarns colour ;)

I have been wondering what's the matter..I start new things ALL the time..Now this morning I started a new knitting..AGAIN..
Must be some disease..lol :)
This time it's a top that I had in plan as a gift..but think I won't get it ready til Christmas anyway. This year I have'nt got Christmas mood and that's why all the handmade presents are still undone. But I can start early for next year..haa..haaa :)
So at the moment I have a few knittings on the go..AND I TRY NOT TO start ANY new ones!!!!! At least before I get one ready ;)

They are here now..hureyy..The yarns!! Light blue and black. Now I can continue on my scarf :) It did'nt take long either, great service from Novita!

In the front on the first pic you can see something I started to knit just a while ago..not sure how it's going to be coz' I'm trying to make something without a pattern so let's see if I can..

Made a card for my friend who got a little baby... Remembered now that I need to get new pens to write with, the ones I have are lousy :(

And at last my Round Robin is on the way..so see you sometime next year I hope!!! The theme is 'something cute' so can't wait what the others come up with!

Here are the mittens I have been knitting. Quite big.. (the one in the middle is a normal size ;) )
So I put them in the waschingmashine and then we see what out comes.

Hmm..so what is this. Don't look like a pair of mittens anyway..lol :)
Think they are ok..The thumbs are a bit big but I think they turned out good for my first try. If I sometime knit another pair I'll do smaller thumbs. The patters is from Novita magazine.

On the first pic it's the brooch I made a few days ago..think it turned out nice :)

I have been crochetting stars/snowflakes. Here you can see a few of them hanging in the window. I think they look nice. Have done some smaller too but not decided what to do with them yet.

Jess, jess, jess have just found the yarn ...hureeeyyy.. The one I need so I can knit my scarf ready. Ordering it from Novita! Can't wait to get it =)

I need to: Knit legwarmers for myself
Knit the mittens, they are still halfdone
Frame the present..I know..I know it's still undone too!!!!!
Make some cards
I want to: Order new fabrics so I can sew curtains and other things we
need in the house.
Get in Christmasmood
Have time to sew and knit more..lol..

Have crochetted some flowers. It's easy and they look nice. Of some I have made brooches, added some small pearls into them. What I'll do with the others I don't know yet.
Then I came up with the idea to crochet one of Novita's Huopanen yarn..BUT..it did'nt turn out nice after felting in the washer. It's the white flower. =(
Just hope the mittens I'm doing with the same yarn don't turn out the same way..
The bracelet and necklace was fun to do =)
All are my own designs =)

Saturday, November 26, 2005

Just noticed that I have'nt got enough yarn to get the scarf ready =( grrrrr..
Did'nt think about that when I started it. So now I just have to hope that I'll find it somewhere so I can get the knitting ready. It's a yarn I bought a few years ago so not sure if they have it in the stores anymore.
The mittens are still halfdone as so many other things.
Have painted a frame for the cross stitching but now I'm not sure how to put the pic there
Seems like I don't get anything done these days..pheewww...
And this english is'nt going so fine either..I wonder..
So shall I continue in english, suomeksi or på svenska.. =)..
Is someone having a bad day here??!!?

Nice weekend

Yesterday I went to the craftshow in Tampere , Suomen kädentaidot 2005.
It was great. Bought some stuffs and got lots of ideas. Have already started to try out a few of them so let's see what I come up with.
I'm quite pleased with the things I bought but would have liked to buy more yarns. Was not quite into cross stitch things this time but did find the buttons I have been looking for =) The fabrics where expensive, or at least for me, so got only a little piece. Would have liked more coz' they where so lovely! Maybe some other time.
Hope to go again next year =)
Here's my crafty collection from the show..

*Still dreaming and trying to find my own crafty thing to start doing.. Maybe I'll find it someday, who knows..But it's nice to have dreams.. *

on the go..

Thought I post a pic of the two works I have on the go at the moment. A fluffy scarf and mittens..
The mittens are huge now but after they have been in the wascher for felting I hope they turn up just the way I want. (?!)
Going to post new pics about how it's going.
I know I was'nt suppose to start new projects, but last evening I had to start the scarf coz' I would love to have one. It's my first time I knit a pattern like this.

You are interchangeable.Fun, free, and into everything, you've got every
eventuality covered and every opportunity just
has to be taken. Every fiber is wonderful, and
every day is a new beginning. You are good at
so many things, it's amazing, but you can
easily lose your place and forget to show up.
They have row counters for people like you!

What kind of knitting needles are you?

Some shoppings

Had a good day shopping yesterday. And this is what I got. Pink t-shirt, purple jersey, cards, frames, yarn, fabric and a pocketbook..
I'm not sure what to do with the fabric but it's so nice so I just had to buy it :) Only 0,95€ / meter in Ikea.
The red cards would be great for Christmas with some stitched pics on. And the yarn is for the mittens I'm knitting at the moment.
Looks like that when you are'nt looking for anything you find great stuffs..

No knit or stitchmood here..

Have been trying to knit and get the picture right..but it's not my thing ..pheeewww. Not easy at all!!
Have'nt been in either knit or stitchmood lately.
Have to see if I want to continue on the jumper, maybe without the picture then..

Wednesday, August 03, 2005

been sewing..

Have'nt had time to knit the last few days. Been busy sewing. But now I have done the presents so will continue on the jumper. Have startes on the sleeves. Still a but unsure how it's going to go with the pic on fron of the jumper..but let's see about that then.
Hope for the best. Noticed the jumper is going to be a bit bigger than I thought.
Mum did llike her present and card although I'm not happy with the sewing. It did'nt turn out neat and was difficult to sew..

So fun to knit..

So I started knitting yesterday and got this much done then. And it's so fun to knit! But do you think I did get the stitchings ready before I started...NO..still have them to do. But I will do them, I promise.
I'm not sure how to put the picture of the heffalump into this knitting but I will sort it out and hope for the best. I use a simple pattern for the jumper. Would like to get the backside done today.
Yesterday mum did want to get rid of all the threds she don't want..soo..think you already know who did take them,,yes.. ME!! lol
So what shall I do with them and some crocheted squears?? No idea yet.

Monday, July 25, 2005

Lots of ideas..so little time..

Have got lots of new ideas ..crafty ones ..
Would like to start stitching a jersey for my baby..one with a heffalump on . Think he's so cute..BUT first I have some stitchings to make ready before I sort out the knitting..ok..I have been looking at some patterns already..lol

A few cards I need to do also..pheeewww..need more time!!!
