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.
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.
I can't believe I didn't post these socks a long time ago, as I finished these a while back. Well, better late than never: and the little knitting I've been doing has been socks anyway, so these fit the scheme!
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!)
More feet content - these I made a while back. They're just great knitting group or tv knitting, as it's only knit, knit, knit. I'm almost tempted to say I'm looking forward to fall and winter to wear these... but I won't!
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.
Oh my, oh my I've been very bad at posting... but that's because I've been very bad a knitting. I'm just not feeling the mojo at the moment, and I don't intend to force myself either. But I sure hope you enjoy my (less frequent) posts anyway.
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.
