Did dye some more yarn and here is a pic of it..Looks nice again!! Strawberry and the other is blueberry.
BUT...my head is empty, I don't know what to start knitting with it!!! A few days now and only a few rows on some old projects been done.. I'm out of ideas..
Have been looking in old knitmags but have'nt found anything yet...Let's see what I come up with..;)

Another one..But really must think over with the pattern coz' it's not ok =( The edges starts to roll and don't look good at all. Not sure what to do now..keep this or rip it up..hmmmmm...
The yarn is Novita Samos Lollipop and I LOVE it =)
What next..another scarf ?!..lol =)

Todays project is maybe a bit too fluffy..but someone might like it =)
The crochetted flower is nice. Maybe it fits with the scarf too if I come up with how to add it there..maybe with a needle.

Knitted the scarf today. The yarn looks good on this one ;) Only thing is that the edges will roll up a bit. But my mum already sayd she sure can take the scarf..lol :) I think I was doing good..knitting this in one day, dye the yarn myself ( last week ) and come up with the pattern...Hurreeyyyy for ME Haa..aa!!!

Decided that I'll start knitting ready some of the halfdone projects that I have. (and I sure have a few..)So made this jumper ready today. Only had the sleeves to sew and to knit the collar. The pattern is from an old Novita magazine and the yarn is 7 veljestä.

The cap is made with the pattern fromLauras blog Thanks! ;) It was fun trying out a new knitting tecnique.

Now I need to continue on some of the halfdone projects before I'll start a new one..

Todays mail..the new issue of Novita. There are lots of lovely designs in it. I also like the new yarncolours they have.
Then I got some Kool-Aid from my friend Vicki..Thank you..you are sooooo sweeet!!!! Now I have to find out how to dye some own yarn =)
Here is my funny new cap I made last weekend .. I like the pattern so maybe I'll do a new one in some different colour.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you who read my blog :)
Have been in knitty mood and got a few things ready. Made the legwarmers a few days ago.
Noticed that after using them one time they already look worn..but it's the way the yarn is. Just hope they don't turn out stretchy and burled :(
The wristwarmers (or what shall I call them ) I got ready today. And it feels so nice and warm to wear them :) Think I'll have to knit another pair with some different yarn.
Knitted these with Novita Hippy yarn
Needles nr 7
Patterns my own
And by the way...it's not easy to take a pic of both your hands by yourself lol :o)
