Yes, I know the sweater is not really called the Pippi Longstocking sweater, but it kind of is anyway.It's really an old Swedish fisherman's sweater, but after Pippi wore it it has become the Pippi-sweater. It's a nice sweater and now it's back in fashion again. I didn't use a pattern to knit this sweater. I used the gauge and the picture of the sweater to make it. After finishing it I see that I could've done things a bit different, but I'm satisfied with the result. If I'm ever making another one, I would knit it top-down. I hope this one fits the receiver so I don't have to start a new one right away. The sweater is knitted using Nepal from Drops.
Har en plan om å lage julekalender på jobben til kollegaene mine. Det betyr at jeg lager 24 ting og at kollegaene mine på jobben skriver navnet på en lapp og legger i en boks. Den som blir trukket ut, får velge seg en ting fra min kurv, der jeg har lagt 24 hjemmelagde ting. Jada, det er en litt sprø idé, men veldig morsomt. Jeg håper å rekke det. Tenkte egentlig at disse to Mot mobbing-luene og denne blå lua skulle være i kurven, men den ene Mot mobbing-lua passet meg litt for godt så den ble min. Mot mobbing-luene er strikket i Karisma fra Drops mens den andre er strikket i Nepal.
I have a plan to make a Christmas calendar for my colleagues at work. That basically means that I make 24 things and my colleagues sign up by writing their name on a piece of paper and put it in a box. Every day until Christmas we pull one name out of the box and that person gets to choose a thing from my knitting basket. So yes, I have to finish 24 projects before December. It's a bit crazy, but fun as well. I made two of these hats with Against bullying in Norwegian and a blue baggy hat, but one of the Against bullying hats was just perfect to me so I kept it. The against bullying hats are made using Karisma from Drops while the blue baggy one is knitted in Nepal from Drops.
Disse sokkene er i enkel glattstrikk og strikket i Fabel fra Drops. De er i størrelse 32 omtrent. Kjekt å ha når vinteren kommer.
