More mittens

  Coz' I had some of the lightblue yarn left I did knit another pair of baby mittens. I know I will knit more in other colours.
I have also got ready a pair of kids mittens with the Viking Fröya yarn.
Bright and colourful.

And now the 'mitten month' ends. Not much done for me, 5 pairs. Two pairs is still halfdone. But will continue on them later.
Not sure what to start with now...hmmmmm..maybe something christmas related. Or then make halfdone projects ready.

What about you, what are you crafting at the moment?

Leg warmers and more socks

Every day I knit..
And here's what I got ready this time. A pair of leg warmers my friend asked me to do.
So nice yarn, Novita Puro. This lovely colour is perfect for the autumn.
Must take some new pic's when she wears them.

 More socks.. in red this time. Adults socks knitted with novita Isoveli.
Brown ones on the way and then...either blue, pink, white.. maybe striped ones..

What are you knitting at the moment? Prepared for the winter with socks or other warmers?

No craft room :(

Not much going on at my craft blog these days.. My time goes mostly at work, spending time with our kids and hw's etc.
Yes I still do craft, but so slow that I don't get anything ready. Have lot of things on the go, and soon something will be ready.
Have been sorting out my craft room now when it's going to be our girls room. Grrrrr.... I so need a craft room.. At the moment I must find room for all things in my wardrobe etc.. I think you can find yarn almost everywhere..haahaa..
My little girl likes to help me. She already likes yarn :)

Mystery Shawl

Now the mystery shawl is ready. Did take a while to make the last looong rows ready.
On the picture it's on blocking and it's evening so not any good pictures. Must take a new one in daylight.
I love the design from Vickevira. And the yarn ( Järbo garn fantasi ) is lovely to knit with, but not sure what I thought about when I bought this yarn..way too dark colours.
This turned out to a big shawl.

Sooo slow..

Lately I have been a bit tired so not much craftings done.
Knitting on the mystery shawl, but it's going so slow. Hope to get it all done soon so I can start new projects.
Have joined the sock knit along, so it's going to be socks on the list too.

Have a good time!

Coasters and shawl

 When we where on the car trip I did crochet these coasters. 8 of them.
You see..I must always have something to do with my hands ;)
Yarns: Novita Kotiväki and Mandarin Petite

And these other two I made a few days ago.
Yarn: Novita Kotiväki Colour

 Knitting on the mystery shawl is fun. Have got ready clue 2 now too. So I hope that we got the next one soon.
This Järbo fantasi yarn is so soft, but I'm not sure if the colours are so neat. A bit dark.

Mystery shawl kal

I found Ravelry for a long time ago but have'nt had a look at it so much. A few days ago I thought why not see what it's all about. Looks like lot's of ideas, inspiration and fun.

Decided to join in a knit-a-long. It's a mystery shawl and so nice to knit.
A little problems at first but now it's going well.
My yarn for the shawl is Järbo Garn Fantasi.

Friday, July 29, 2011


Started to feel like I need to knit something..but what?!
Something light and simple to start a shawl it's going to be.
Would like to make a few in different colours. Or if I find some other nice pattern I can try it..

Do you have any ideas for a great shawl patterns that is a "must knit shawl" ??

back home..

We are home from our trip. Had so nice time away in Sweden. 8 nights..went so fast. Nice things to see and do. Did drive on the counrtyside and all was lovely and neat..but we didn't have so good luck with the weather..rain and a bit cold.
And while we sat in the car I did crochet coasters. When I have fasten threads I post picture.

 Made these pennant flags a while ago. And now they are up in our baby girls room.
They turn out a bit curly in the end but hope they will straighten now when they are up. More to come, coz' I have crochet more of these flags.

 And here's some new coasters in pastel colours. Soft and nice. Also made them in other colours.
