Hot hot water bottle cozy

hot water bottle cozy

Years ago I bought two hot water bottles and knit two cozies for them. Later on I gave one of them to my niece, and we lived for many years with just one. This winter I decided we do need two again, so I bought one and got to knitting. I chose something fom my stash (as always currently), and that's Traveller by Dragonfly Fibers in color Bad Moon Rising.

My Säde scarf looks like snow in the sun

Säde scarf

I know, I can't believe it either, but I have a FO. Actually I have a few, but I'll show you this one first. It's a scarf which I call the Säde scarf, as I knit it from the Säde yarn from Novita, a Finnish yarn brand. It's a really pretty mixed fiber yarn with sequins in it -My sister gave me two balls of it back in 2013.

Just another pair of socks for charity

I'm still here, knitting and posting in slow motion it seems.

 

It's been a busy fall until now and it's about to get even busier. I'm -among other things- taking a sewing course at the moment! So perhaps there'll be some sewing content up soon. Also my Mum was visiting me a few weeks back and we had a blast. I'll try to get a few pics up on what we did (and the gorgeous socks she knit in one week!)

Kalajoki socks

Kalajoki socks

Seems like the summer of 2013 is a summer of socks for me. No, I'm not participating in any KAL, but it seems socks are all I knit.

 

This pair of gorgeously turqoise socks was finished a while back. Let me tell you more:

 

The pattern is called Kalajoki, which translates to "Fish River", and it is indeed a river in Western Finland. It's very "curvy", so the socks sport a similar, very cleverly made and stunning looking, pattern.

Boyfriend hats for cancer patients

Boyfriend hat

To stay on the hat theme, here are two knits I finished ages ago, but never remembered to blog about them. I do think they are pretty enough to have their own post, though, don't you think?

 

In fact they were knitted last summer to support a little charity action called 100 Beanie Drive, and currently they are warming the heads of cancer patients in Australia!

Bright hats! Very bright hats!

I've made a few hats lately, just for fun and to get something quick and easy on the needles.

 

The first one is my own creation, it's a slouchy hat with moss stitch, and the yarn was called Extra Merino Premium by Schachenmayr. It's adult size so I could keep it myself, but I think I will pass it on at some point.
