Før sommeren var meningen å redusere antall WIP, men jeg rakk i grunnen ikke å redusere noe som helst. Jeg prøver igjen nå på høsten. Det hadde vært greit å få ferdig påbegynte prosjekter før 2017 og startet året med et eller to prosjekter på pinnene. En drøm, men jeg har gjort det før og det kan gå igjen. I den forbindelse har jeg klart å få ferdig et par Gudrun-votter. De ble startet på i vår, og jeg hadde kun tomlene og festing av tråder igjen. Ikke veldig mye jobb, og de var ferdige på en ettermiddag.

I should not be surprised anymore when I receive such nice gifts from knitters, since knitters in general are very generous people. But I still get surprised, especially when I receive such a great gift. I joined a book swap arranged by The Bookish Stitcher, and we were supposed to swap books. I got a lot more than a book. Some lovely yarn, tea, popcorn, a knitted pouch and not to mention the roller derby stitch marker. Somebody did some research. Babyboxermom, thank you so much for a lovely gift. I'm looking forward to read the book as well.
Before summer I planned to work on my WIPs, but I didn't have time to reduce the number of them. I decided to give it another go during fall. It would be great to finish my WIPs before 2017, and just think about to start 2017 with only one or two projects on the needle. A dream, but I have done it before and I think I could do it again. On that note, I managed to finish my Gudrun-mittens. I cast on this spring, and I only the the thumbs and weaving in the threads left. Not too much job, and I manage to finish them in one afternoon. Knitted in Holst supersoft and New Zeeland wool.
