I have finished the august socks. The pattern was purple sky by Kate. It was an easy pattern to knit. I like theese socks, so I might knit more of theese. I uses Wool Rich four ply and I plan to give theese away as a gift.
Tulla ønsket seg omtrent alt i boken Kæk og klassisk børnestrikk av Samsøe. Det er veldig gøy, men jeg innser mine begrensninger og tar et prosjekt av gangen, Vel, sånn ca. et og et prosjekt, da. Hadde tenkt å starte på en kjole i Alfa, men fant ut at det kunne være et kjekt prosjekt å ta med seg til Tananger. Endte opp med å starte på silketoppen som er strikket i silketweed fra Drops. Litt ekkelt og ujevnt garn å strikke med. Det deler seg ofte, men av en eller annen rar grunn går det faktisk ganske fort å strikke med det også. Tulla har lyst at jeg skal strikke nederdel av samme garnet. Vi får nå se, men jeg skal være enig i at det blir et fint sett, da.
My daughter wanted almost everything in the book Kæk og klassisk børnestrikk by Samsøe. It's very funny but I know my limits and take it one project at the time. Well, approxiomately one project at the time. I was planning to start on a dress knitted in Alfa, but I found out that was a great project to take with me on the knitting trip to Tananger. I ended up knitting on a top knitted in silk-tweed from Drops. It's an uneven and hard yarn to knit with. The threads separetes all the time, but of some weird reason it's still a quick knit. My daughter wanted me to knit a skirt from the book in the same yarn. We'll see, but I agree that would make a nice set.
Another weekly question from Secret Pal 12.
What is the best thing you've ever received in the mail/post?
That's a tough question. The gift I remember the best is always the last, and my last gift was a book from my Secret Pal 12, The Tortilla curtain, and she had sown a book bag for me, so I can take a book with me without ruining the book. That's so me, because I'm seriously crazy about my books, don't like anyone to fold it or actually read it. She also got me this magnet bookmark. Love it. So I would have to say my last gift from my Secret Pal 12.
