Small socks

Earlier in the summer I made a few pairs of baby socks.
Nice present to give to friends who's having a baby this fall.
Fast knitting project. Used Mandarin Petit and my own sockpattern.

For september-october I have joined a group where we knit socks. Let's see if I get any pairs done ;)
Have planed to knit some socks for Christmaspresents and then some for charity too.

Last days I have made 7 new things ready, but can't tace pictures coz' my camera is'nt working. Must buy a new one soooon!!!

All pieces ready

All pieces for the tablecloth are ready. Now I need to sew them together.
But.. I'm so lousy at doing things ready..just leave them and start new ones..grrr.
Think this must be one of the next things I do!! Maybe this evenings project. Then it needs a crochet edge.

What have you on the go at the moment??

Small tablecloth/doily

This is a lovely design on a small tablecloth/doily.
Have made about 6 of these. This time two on the photo.
Takes only a while to get ready. And the yarn Almedahls was so great to crochet with. Only problem is that I can't find more of it anywhere. Think it was such an old yarn that it's not on the market anymore :(
If you know anything of where to find it please tell me!!!

I have lots of small yarnballs and leftover yarns that I have been saving but not know what to knit or crochet with them.
I now came up with the idea to crochet small pieces into a blanket. Can make a piece every now and then and continue when I feel for it.
I think I have quite dark colours of this wool ( leftovers from socks etc.), but going to continue on it anyway. Not even sure what to do with it when..and if... it gets ready.
Have now made about 50 pieces.

Here is pictures of the tablecloth I did mention.
I love to crochet with this yarn. Almedahls Marina. Bougt it on a fleamarket for only 1 € (200g).
I don't know why, but I dont quite like this design. Did look much better on the picture in the magazine.
Not my kind of thing so not going to crochet another
Maybe someone else likes it..

When other peoples go sale shopping for clothes I shop yarns that's on :o)
These I bought ready for some socks til winter. Would like to start them already but coz' it's been so warm my heands feels so sweaty knitting with wool.
Have been crocheting and that's just perfect in the hot summerweather.

And here's a picture of two dishcloths I made earlier.
Now I try not to knit any more dishcloths..haa..haa.. But it's so simple ;)

Later it's going to be an evening with some crochet and tv, but first it's time for a sauna..
Have a nice evening!
Mukavaa iltaa!
Trevlig kväll!
