A new year, a lot of possibilities. I had big plans to start 2009 with empty knitting needles and no UFO's. Well, that didn't quite work out the way I planned. I still have some UFO's, but I have finished some projects. My Mermaid was finished 25th of December. It's not a great picture, but I didn't have much time to take the picture. Maybe I'll take another one later. The receiver of the present was happy, even though I finished a bit late.
Jeg har strikket pulsvarmere i romjula. Har brukt Drops Alpakka. Mønsteret er Fetching fra Knitty. Lett mønster og jeg strikket ferdig pulsvarmerne på en kveld.
I have knitted these fingerless mittens. The yarn is Drops Alpaca and the pattern is Fetching from Knitty. Tha pattern was easy and the mittens was finished during an evening.
Tulla ville ha en tunika, så da strikket jeg en da. Vel, ikke hele sannheten, for garn og oppskrift ble kjøpt på Dale i høstferien. Det har med andre ord tatt sin tid før jeg fikk tid til prosjektet, men i romjula ble det tid. Ikke tok det lang tid heller. Det som tok lengst tid var at jeg manglet et nøste og butikkene var stengt 1. og 2. juledag. Nå er den i alle fall ferdig og klar til bruk. Tulla ville ha den på i morgen på skolen.
My daughter wanted a dress, so I knitted her one. Well, not the whole truth, since both yarn and pattern was bought at Dale's factory in September. It took a while before I had time to start the project, but between Christmas and New Years Eve I finally had the time. It didn't take that much time either. What I actually used most time to do, was to wait for the shops to open. I was one skein short, and since the stores are closed 25.th and 26.th. of December, I had to wait two days before I could finish it. Now it's done and ready to use at school tomorrow.
Jeg har også strikket ferdig et par votter til. Har brukt Sisu.
I have also knitted another pair of mittens. Knitted in Sisu.
Enda en Nøstebarn-dress. Ikke så mye å si om den, men snart ferdig og da skal jeg starte på et nytt og mer spennende prosjekt.
Another Nøstebarn-suit. Not much to say about it, but I'm done soon and then I'm going to start on another more exciting project.
