It's some process on some of my projects. I'm not the girl sitting around doing nothing. Oh, no, in this home or actually couch, it's busy needles, oh, yes. I have quite a lot of big projects on the needles now, actually two, so I needed a small, fast project. I knitted Wham Bam thank you Lamb yesterday. It was done in an hour, needles 7 and Alfa. I think it's going in my gift basket, but I'm not sure. I'm very pleased with the resault, so it might end up around my neck for all I know. I can certainly knit more of it.
Jeg har også fått tid til å strikke litt på Tradisjonstunikaen min. Nå måler arbeidet 24 cm, og maskeantallet reduseres hele tiden. Merker at det går litt fortere å strikke rundt enn nederst, for da var det 440 m på pinne 3. Tok litt tid, det ja. Veldig fornøyd med den lillafargen jeg har valgt, og veldig fornøyd med at jeg rekte opp den første mønsterborden jeg strikket. Hadde nemlig valgt en ganske mørk brun bunnfarge på mønsterborden, men etter at jeg hadde strikket ferdig mønsterborden første gang, så jeg jo ikke mønsteret. Brunfargen ble altfor mørk. Måtte en tur på Husfliden og bytte farge, derfor har jeg et garninnkjøp på 50 g i år. Ikke min skyld! Jeg får jo ikke byttet et brukt garn, men ny farge måtte jeg ha. Eller; det var jo jeg som plukket ut fargene før jul, så det er nok min skyld allikevel, men det er en veldig god unnskyldning for at garnlageret vokste med usle 50 g. Kjøpte i alle fall ikke mer enn det ene nøstet.
I've time to knit a bit on my Tradisjonstunica as well. It measures about 24 cm and I'm decreasing all the time so instead of 440 stitches it's now about 300. I'm very pleased with the purple color I chose. And I'm happy I decided to frog my first attempt, because the pattern was first knitted with dark purple on dark brown. The main color was too dark and the pattern was hardly visibly. Had to buy a new skein in a lighter color, and that was my first yarnshopping in 2009. I just had to buy yarn. Couldn't really exchange the used skein, could I? Not my fault I just had to buy one skein, but then I chose the colors in the first place, so it might be me anyway. Well, I didn't buy more than 50 g, so I was a good girl.
I've got an award. Lucky me. Anne Elise gave it to me. Thank you very much! I have to give to eight new blogs, so SaRi, allium, Månestråle, Karipia, Blomstermamma, Kattepus and the last two go to everyone reading this blog and wants to take with them
