No problem to find something to talk about. Really not. Rumour has it some even used the noise of almost a hundred talking people to find their way. I see no reason to doubt it. I have been to a knitting meeting with about 100 real nice people. This time not only as a guest, but partly arranging the whole thing. A lot of nice people to talk to, lots of yummy yarn, lots of drinks and great food. A great weekend! My destashing wasn't really a project to talk about this weekend. I knew it would go that way, and I had finished a blanket earlier just so I wouldn't have a big minus in my destashing. I have to admit I more often think about what I actually is going to knit of the yarn before I buy it, instead of just seeing nice yarn, buying it and then finding a nice project to go with the yarn. Even though, the yarn I bought this weekend I don't know what to make of. But nice it is. I bought TulliBall, Kauni, Pickles Angora and some Hifa. Regia and Nepal is bought before the weekend, but had put into the balance. Somebody couldn't keep their hands off.
Jeg har allerede strikket ferdig to pulsvarmere i garnet fra Hifa. Garnet var en gave fra Hifa og alle fikk et nøste hver i goodie bagen, og det samme med mønsteret. Elsker mønsteret og både tulla og jeg er veldig fornøyde med pulsvarmerne.
I have already finished two pair of fingerless mittens from the yarn from Hifa. The yarn was a gift that everyone got in their goodie bags and the same with the pattern. Loved the pattern, and both my daughter and I love the mittens too.
Strikketreff er perfekte steder for å hente masse inspirasjon og starte på nye prosjekter. Det gjorde jeg også. Startet på Pippi-genseren i Nepal. Jeg strikker uten oppskrift og har kun sett på bildene av Pippi. Genseren er såpass enkel allikevel. Jeg har ca 9 cm mellom stripene og håper det går opp i hvor lang den skal være.
Knitting meetings are the perfect place to be inspired and to start new projects. I got inspired. I started on a new project, the sweater Pippi Longstocking is wearing. I don't have a pattern, but the sweater is real simple. I have about 9 cm between the stripes.
Må nesten vise litt bilder av selve treffet også, selv om jeg må innrømme at jeg tok minimalt med bilder. Takker for et flott treff og gleder meg til neste år uansett hvor det måtte bli!
