I just wonder how it is possible to be as clumsy as me? Just look at what I have managed to do. I have knitted the back part for Feminim rib from Kæk og klassisk børnestrik in two different types of cotton yarn, and it shows. How it shows! And I'll tell you can feel the difference even more than it shows. This top was supposed to be to a girl I've tried to knit to earlier. Yes, it's the same recepant as of the other four tries on tops I've had this spring and summer. This is my fourth try. It's really not the meaning this girl shall receive a knitted top from me.
Vel, jeg gir ikke opp, men måtte strikke i et annet garn enn bomullsgarnet. Orket nemlig ikke å rekke opp med en gang. Så nå strikker jeg til en annen jente, samme toppen, men i alpakka.Well, I'm not one who gives up, but I just had to knit in a different yarn than the red cotton yarn. Couldn't frog it at once. So now I knit the same top, but in alpaca yarn to another girl.
Mine svigerforeldre kom hjem fra USA i dag, og det var en trøst etter det miserable forsøket på et bakstykke i går. Jeg bestilte nemlig en liten pakke fra Knit Pics som de tok med seg hjem. I bøkene er det så mange lekre oppskrifter at jeg egentlig fikk lyst til å legge fra meg hele Feminin rib, og starte på et prosjekt til meg selv, men jeg skal ikke starte noe nytt prosjekt, skal ikke, skal ikke ...
My parents in law came home from the USA today, and that was a comfort after my miserable try to knit a top yesterday. I had ordered a packet from Knit Pics and they brought it back home. The books have so many great patterns that I'm tempted to knit something for myself instead of the girlie top. But I will not fall into temptation, I will not, I will not ...
Jeg hadde også bestilt noen få nøster med garn. Ja, jeg vet jeg ikke skulle kjøpe garn før Tananger, men hvor ofte får man sjansen til å bestille seg Knit Pics-garn? Ok, det kan jeg hende jeg får den sjansen en god del oftere nå, men allikevel. Jeg synes jeg var flink, for jeg bestilte kun fire nøster. Ok, så måtte jeg tenke litt på overvekt og at svigers faktisk skulle ha plass til dette hjem da. Ordentlig mykt og deilig garn er det i alle fall. Skal finne passende prosjekter til det utover høsten.
I had also ordered some few skeins of yarn. Yes, I know I'm not supposed to buy yarn before I travel on a SnB meeting in Tananger, but how often does one get a chance to order some Knit Pics yarn? Ok, I might get that oppertunity more often now, but still. I think I was a good girl, cause I ordered only four skeins. And yes, I had to think about overweight at the plane since it was my parents in law who had to pack it and bring it back to Norway. The yarn is so soft and delicious, and during the autumn I'll find a perfect pattern for it.
Til sist det jeg egentlig skulle bestille fra Knit Pics, nemlig strikkepinner. De beste strikkepinnene som finnes. Svigermor lurte litt på hvordan strikkepinner kunne veie så mye, helt til hun så bøkene og garnet. Ja, ja, jeg fikk en ordentlig godpakke fra USA, så da strikker jeg videre på Feminin Rib, mens jeg sikler litt på det jeg har lyst å starte på etter hvert.
And last, the things I meant to order from Knit Pics, needles, the best needles ever. My mother in law wondered how needles could weigh so much, but then she saw the books and the yarn. Well, well, I got a great package from the USA, so then I continue knitting on the Feminin Rib, while I gaze at the things I want to knit after the top.
Weekly question for week 10 from Secret Pal 12.
What Olympic event would best describe you knitting/knitting style?
That's a thinker;) I like to watch the opening ceremony. It could describe my knitting/knitting style. I like beginnings, love too much to start new projects, and I really want it to be spectacular and overgo everything else I have knitted. And sometimes it could take forever to finish what I knit, like it takes forever to present every contestant at the in march to the stadium at the end of the ceremony.
