It's a while since Christmas, but i got this lovely wool as a present from Denmark, and i have made this's quite some time since i finished it, but i took a photo just a few days ago. yup, things take time sometimes.

i guess i need to warn you...i will be veeeery busy knitting and crocheting this month..and especially next month...i have entered a "finish you project " competition...with lots of different teams that work together competing againg other teams. i have of course joined the Southern Norway team. and we are called Team Skagerak!

new wool

I just wanted to make a separate post with the wool i brought home from the fair:)

New Lanark 100% wool , aran. As you can see i have already started knitting, this time a jacket from Drops Garnstudio.

I also bought 4 balls of Sublime Kid Mohair bland in a lovely colour!,and yes i have a plan for this as well!

AND, i discovered something new...tatting...i totally love it, and it's so easy. actually i remember doing something similar when i went to school, inbetween the classes all the girls used to make friendship bracelets using this very same technique...except for the flipping of the knot!

And because i sat down and had a go at tatting at the fair, i got to bring home something tatted. the blue one i have made myself:)

raspberry baby blanket

Good afternoon everyone, i hope you are all great! i myself have not been that well the last few days, but i am definetly on the mend.

here is the finished Raspberry chevron baby blanket, i have made it for my friend Tiina, she gave birth to a baby boy recently-congratulations!! i started using some white chunky wool, then bought the brown..and when i found out that it was a boy i got the blue. the wool is just amix and match of what i had and had to boy. i am not sure about the colours though...but the more i see it i do like it.

this is just a close up of the two last colours .nothing much happening here really..just knitting along on this other raspberry chevron afghan..won't be finished for another few months though!
