Recently I received a Secret Pal gift, and the yarn, Sandnes alpakka, was so tempting that I just had to find a project right away. My husband wanted mittens, and he liked Odalsmittens. So I knitted Odalsmittens for him. They look a bit odd, long and thin, but it's rib all the way so they are very stretchy. I have one skein of blue left, and I guess my husband will get a hat as well.
Da har jeg endelig fått vært innom Norges største garnbutikk. Jeg ble imponert over plassen, og det var mye fint sokkegarn. Samtidig håper jeg at de kommer til å ta inn litt mer garn, sånt som er litt vanskelig å få tak i. Kunne ikke gå inn i en garnbutikk og komme tomhendt ut igjen, da. Tulla valgte seg et nøste og lillegutt et. Jeg lovte å strikke sokker av garnet.
Finally I found time to drop by Norway's largest yarnstore, Maud's. I was impressed over the space, and there was a lot of nice sock yarn. At the same time I hope they will sell more yarn that's hard to get in Norway, now I think they had the regular sorts of yarn. Anyhow, can't go into a yarn shop and don't buy anything. My daughter picked one skein and my son another skein. I promised to knit socks for them.
