It's time for the third issue og Worsted Knitt's pattern show!
Here I will present some of the newest, nicest knitting patterns on Ravelry. I will present patterns that are not in the Top 10, and even a bit underrated. This issue is all about summer knits! Take a look what I chose:
I have to admit, not all of these fingerless mitts were made recently. I knit quite a few last winter, but promptly forgot to photograph them. But better late than never - here are some of my latest fingerless mitts.
There are two pairs made with Gjestal Janne in charcoal grey. I got this yarn in a swap in November, and made plain k2, p2 and stockinette mitts with it. Very suitable yarn for mitts, and I'm hoping the yarn won't pill in use, either.
I'm just back from a week's vacation in Finland, my native, or home country. I loved seeing my family again and seeing the Finnish spring after many years of visiting only in the winter or summer. I really wish I could have stayed longer, but as it's not possible, I'm trying to ease my sorrow with Finnish yarns.
This spring has been all about cowls. I've made so many! It's juyt the way knitting (or life, in fact) is for me - I get utterly and completely fascinated about something, devote my time to it almost exclusively... and at some point I'm through. I've seen it with shawls especially: in 2010 I knit one shawl after another - and after that I've hardly finished any!
So let's see how long it will take with the cowl enthusiasm to wear off. It's not gone, yet!
Last night I got a call from a friend of mine, a knitting instructor and a friend of a yarn shop owner, who happened to have free tickets to the H+H Cologne, a huge, international trade fair, ans asked me if I would like to come along tomorrow (that is, today, Saturday). I was thrilled and of course agreed.
So this morning we took the train to the Cologne fair and entered the fair with little expectations.
Sorry for the longer blog silence, but my darling husband Nick was updating the software my blog runs on, Drupal, from version 6 to version 7. The design stayed the same, but the site is safer and more up-to-date on the background.
We checked that everything runs smoothly before going live - but please, if you notice anything weird or something not working on Worsted-Knitt.net, please leave a comment and we'll check it out.
