Jeg har klart å strikke fire tomler også, så nå har jeg to par votter ferdige. De er gitt bort i gave også, og mottaker var veldig fornøyd. Det er ikke helt årstiden for votter, men det blir jo vinter igjen. (Håper bare at før det skjer ligger en lang og varm solrik sommer i vente.) Vottene er strikket i Finull og det hvite er dobbel tråd Holst.

And I'm talking about the yarn! The last yarn from Madelinetosh Yarn Club arrived a while ago. Such a beautiful color! I haven't knitted anything from the yarn I received through the yarn club yet, but I'm going to knit something nice. It's not the last time I buy yarn through a yarn club, but next time I think I'm going to go for sock yarn or a yarn club for sweaters. I know Madelinetosh has that as well. What I'm going to knit with two skeins of Madelinetosh, I don't know. I might buy more yarn in a main color so I can use my two skeins as a contras color. I love to knit garments as sweaters and jackets, at least to buy enough yarn to knit a garment from. I might use the yarn for something less, but that's the way my yarn stash grow I guess. The yarn is Feather fingering weight in the color Soft Fury.
I have also managed to knit four thumbs as well, so I have got two pairs of mittens done. They are already given away as a gift, and both receivers were very happy. It's not really the season for warm wool mittens, but sometime it will be winter again. (I just hope a long warm and sunny summer is ahead of us before that happens.) The mittens are knitted in Finull and the white is two threads of Holst.
