Det hender at jeg ikke får med meg helt klart hva jeg skal strikke. Det betyr ofte dobbel jobb. I helga strikket jeg bolen på en Telemarkskofte i str. 6 mnd. Det gikk veldig fort, og var veldig morsomt å strikke noe som gikk så fort. Det eneste som var synd, var at kofta skulle være i str. 1 år. Da var det i grunnen bare å strikke en ny bol. Det gikk fort det også, men jeg må innrømme at den første bolen var morsommere å strikke. Nå er ermene strikket ferdig også. Det siste ermet ble ferdig strikket på et kurs i dag. Nå gjelder det bare å finne en symaskin så jeg får sydd og klippet opp. Siden dette er babyplagg, er garnet Lanett fra Sandnes, noe som betyr at det må symaskin til for å sikre at det ikke rakner. Får se om jeg klarer å finne en symaskin i morgen.
After I arranged a yarn swap lunch at my place, a bunch of skeins ended up different weird places around my house, and I wanted to get rid of the yarn in a hurry. I ended up making a swap deal with Fenlinka. I stuffed all the skeins in a box and shipped them to her. Back I got this cool bag made of jeans together with stitch markers and a needle protector in wood. Great swap! Thank you so much, Fenlinka! (Both for a great gift and for taking the yarn.) The sock next to the bag is half of a pair made with Opal on needles 2,5 mm in size 38.
Sometimes I forget things or don't really get all the information on things. That means often double the work. This weekend I knitted the yoke on a Telemarks jacket in size 6 months. It was a quick knit, and it was fun to knit too since it was such a fast knit. The only thing was that the jacket was supposed to be knit in size 1 year. Only one thing to do, knit another one. It was still a fast knit, but I have to admit the first one was a bit more fun to knit. The last sleeve was knit during a work course today. Now I have to find a working sewing machine so I can cut the jacket and knit the edges. It's a baby jacket so I used Lanett from Sandnes. That is not a pure wool yarn, so I have to use the sewing machine so it won't frog. Have to do that tomorrow.
