...and some more yarn....

From the sock club I saw these socks and then I followed the link to the yarn producer, Miss Babs. There I got stuck looking at all the nice yarns and color combinations. My sister went to the US and voilá, an opportunity for her to bring me back some yarn.
Looking at all the colors and not being able to decide I went for the blackbird shadows. I lack a black sweater sometimes and the idea is to make an Hourglas sweater.

more rag carpet cardigan

It's fun!!
I think I'll need more yarn than I origially planned.
I'll use the same coloring on the sleeves as on the body. I used my Lady February sweater for measurements, I hope it will fit :-)

I like!

a lot from the last Interweave knits.
Maybe it is because I would like to look that way :-) I guess it's warm (and that's a good thing!). I think I would miss the long sleeves. I havn't really figured out all the thick woolen cardigans with short sleeves just yet.

...and here is another one I can imagine wearing (maybe in off-white)

Summer crochet cardigan

Inspired by Maria and then also by Liselotte I've started a new crochet project. I got some great yarn in the second Drops sales, Muskat in 9 different colors and have now calculated, and re-calculated and also started on my cardigan.
So far it gives me the feeling av rag carpet (trasmatta) but with the colors it makes me happy.

Summer knitting - Eco cardigan for N

N is growing (or at least I hope so) and it's time for a bigger size of my "standard baby cardigan".

This time a red one in the eco cotton from Huskroken. I have 4 hanks and took one random to start with. When completing the back it noticed that the other 3 hanks are colored differently, the first one has more pink and white dots and the other have a darker pink shade. Time for a re-start and this project is now in the standard "Anna stand-still". That is when the finish-up starts and the last knitting of neckband etc.

Here is at least a picture of the start.

I share the FO any day....................... I'm lucky she is a small size yet.

Summer dress for N

At some point this lovely cotton yarn followed me home and was turned into a summer dress for N. Here she is at my grandmothers 90th birthday.

Danish design and made on 2.5 mm, the yarn is from Marias garn (I don't remember the name now)

Happy Birthday Dad - 70 years

What do you give to someone how has everything he needs? Something knitted of cause!

I bought the yarn at Marias during the first Drop yarn sale this spring. It's a classic alpaca yarn and I used the Classic Camel vest from Knitting Daily.

With classic leather buttons it tirned out great and the size was perfect. (I did the last finishing after he tried it on just to be on the safe side).
