I had a crafty swap with my friend Stine in Norway. Can't put up a pic of things I did send her ( not yet, but later ;) ) , but can show you the lovely things I got.
I'm SO GLAD over my secret gift!!
Never had this yarns before, Silja and Vestlandsgarn. Looks like it's going to be some christmasknittings in plans now ;)

The kool aid is great. Was just thinking about some different colour than now I got some !! Woohoo!!
I LOVE the knitmarkers..have'nt got any and been dreaming of some for a while now. The wooden buttons are lovely too :)
And..and... Am I anxious or what...hih..hih :)

A pattern, some iron on patches, stoppers to put under socks.
What a great gift!! TUSEN TACK STINE!!!

Two things finished today.
Mittens for me. Woohoo I like them :D
Knitted with Novita 7 veljestä. Needles 3,5 (or was it 3 ) and made up the pattern myself. They are a bit itchy but I don't least they are in my colour!!!

And then I had to start over again with the the cup cloth and needles nr 5. Now it's better ;)

Today I got the magazine Suuri Käsityölehti parhaat neuleet , a mag with knitpatterns. And there's a lots of lovely ones I could knit ;) But more about them some other time.

Villasukka laitoin sinulle postia tulemaan :)

For this evening I had knitting and a drink in plans..not much knitted coz' I been chatting on the net ;)
Earlier on the day I did continue on my lace. Stared a new one on the class earlier this week. It's a slow hobby but fun!

So at last I get something ready! The ponco. You remember I had problems with it at first but after the third try I got it right ;) And here it is. So fluffy and nice. Dark lilac. It's for my friend Debbie.
The yarn is Novita Tango Fani and I used hook nr. 8. The pattern is simple, just chains and double crochet.

I also got one of the socks ready today and going to start the other one soon :D

Went on a tabletop sale today and it did'nt go so good. Peoples don't even wan't to pay such low prizes that I had.. Everything was under 5 €uros.. Even had 0,50 cent on stuffs! But looks like they have to get them for free :(
But after paying for the table and for things I found for me it did turn on + anyway :D So it's better than nothing ;) Better luck next time!!

Och så vill jag säga HEJ till alla mina vänner över i Norge.. Kul att ni tittar in i min blogg :) Ha en riktigt fin kommande höstvecka med massor av handarbeten.

Been feeling a bit bored today. Would have liked some company to chat with but have to wait til tomorrow when my sister comes over :)
We had such lovely warm and sunny evening so I sat outside crochetting. AND now I have to start the poncho over again for the third time!! NOT my day today. First I thought it did'nt look good so started a new one, and then I noticed a mistace so have to start again. The yarn is'nt easy to rip up...grrrr.
And when we where inside I continued crochetting. Think it was a hurricane or some that went by coz' I found this mess in the kitchen. And this happends alot these days ;) ;)
Yesteday I was suppose to go an buy some Mandarin Petit..but came home with all this :D
Maija, Kitten Mohair, Chili and Mandarin Petit.
I do have lots of new ideas :) Just need more time!!!

AND here a closer pic of the lovely sparcly Chili yarn.

Had a crafty weekend.
Got this scarf ready :D Woohooo I like it much.
100 g Filati Baronesse and needles 7 or 8 ( not sure what size ;) ) About 100x45 cm. Pattern Ziinas Kevät-scarf.
Going to be a great small scarf to have around my neck now in the fall and winter. Might knit a new one soon..I hope :)

And I did knit the bigger baby cap. Now it's just the sewings left. Not sure but it seems to be a bit big...
Also made some crochetting on the blanket.

What a grey and rainy day. And now in the late evening it's storming outside.

Have been so lazy, not much done. OOh yes..been knitting ;)...

Ekaks mun pitää Ziinalta kysyä tuosta keväthuivista. Että..kuuluuko tuon reunan olla noin? Siihen tulee vähän erilainen reikä lehden alapuolelle...hmmm....Purkasin varmaan kolmeen kertaan ja aina siit tulee tuollain eli onkos oikein ?

I wan't to thank you all who did send me links to scarfs. There is many lovely ones and I have already a few in plans, but this time I started the spring scarf that Ziina has designed :)

AND todays shoppings. Thought I need a treat and here you can see what I got. 2 t-shirts, stickers with the text 'handmade by' , 2 packs of fimo ( got inspired by Derea ;) ) , holder for handbag, haire clips and some nail files. Then the new Moda. Did have a quick look and a few designs looks interested, they are on my 'might try to do when I got time' list.. :D And then some yarn for a poncho!

I also got the yarn for the socks so soon I have to get started on them. So seems like I'm back to normal now..hundreds of things going on at the same time and no sign of any ufos..Ok, ok..I try to get the blanket ready, it's just on hold at the moment.

I would like to knit a lace scarf. I have one ball left of this lovely pale pink yarn and wan't to use it on something for me. Tryed to start a scarf but it's not looking good so have to find another pattern. Do you know any nice fluffy, lace scarf patterns??
It's not going to be a big one with so little yarn, but with big needles I can get a pretty good one ;) Please help.. ;)

Todays post. Suuri käsityölehti, crafty magazine.Did'nt find anything in it that I liked :( But have to take another look later..
Then my friend Beth did send me some bobbins and a winder, a cute cross stitch kit and a lovely card. THANK YOU Beth!!!!!

Here's a closer picture of the stitchkit :)

Have forgot to show you this lovely gift I got from my cousin when she was to Bulgaria. She did'nt find any yarns but got this lovely box, shells and the necklace.
Knitted a smal baby cap but when it was finished it turned out a bit small so I started a new one..a bit bigger. Then I can try them both on the baby and see if they fit ;)
Here you can see my doll as a model . You notice the cap is quite small.
Tonights and knitting! Wine is all gone now and nothing chatting and surfing on the net. Hope for a more crafty day tomorrow.

Evening.. thought I write something before I go to bed.

Had quite a good day. In the morning I went on a walk with a friend and our kids in their prams. Then on the day I was so tired I had to take a nap..hih ;)
Been crochetting on the blanket. Want to get it ready. Had in plans to start something new...but could'nt decide what to start with, so did continue crochetting. Later in the evening my parents came visiting and we had a barbeque...mmmm..

Now I feel a bit tired and it's quite late too. Did some cleaning so I don't have so much to do tomorrow. Maybe it means more crafting :)
Now you all have a good weekend..nighty night !!
