Yes, this is the sweater "everyone" in Norway is knitting at the moment. A big, cosy sweater in mohair and alpaca. I don't mind, the sweater is fast and easy to knit. That everyone all of a sudden wants to buy yarn and knit a sweater, I don't mind either. It's a bit comic that yarn stores are sold out of mohair yarn at the time. Usually I don't choose to knit in mohair yarn, but together with alpaca it's real soft. This sweater is knitted in my size, but it's not for me. I didn't knit it as long as the model calls for, since the sweater has a tendency to grow a bit. The arms are a bit long, but they're supposed to be folded and long. Knitted on size 7 mm in Drops alpaca and Vivaldi.
Jeg har også strikket de to første julegavene. Et par sokker i glattstrikk i Austermann sock, tror jeg det var i. Har selvfølgelig klart å rote bort merket på garnet. Sokkene er i størrelse 41 sånn ca.
I've also knitted the first two Christmas presents. First a pair of socks in Austerman socks I think. I have of course managed to loose the brand of the yarn. The socks are in size 41.
Den andre julegaven er et par votter fra Twist Collective, Horatio and Oren. De var i grunnen enkle å strikke, men hadde en god del lange fargeskift. Strikket i barnestørrelse og i Finull på pinne 3,5mm.
The second Christmas gift is a pair of mittens from Twist Collective, Horatio and Oren. They were easy to knit, but had some long parts where I had to twist the strands in the back. Knitted in children's size in Finull on needles 3,5 mm.
