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.

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 =)
