Raspberry Chevron Afghan

On Valentines day (feb 14) I Starting knitting an afghan for my brothers wedding. It has taken me just over 3 months to knit, and now it's finished. Here it is drying hanging double on my washing line.My 5 years old daughter is posing in front:)
Measurements are 180*170 cm. It was a pretty easy knit, it just took time. I loved it as a tv knit, and I might well make one for my own livingroom...but no deadline this time:)
I hope to get some nicer photos when the blanket is in it's place in it's new house:)
Thank's for coming, and let me know you were here.

Crocheted table cloth

Well, I couldn't just ignore it...I am so proud today..this is one of the things I have been working hard trying to finish, I started it in March 2008, just to see if I could understand crochet charts.
I have used Fairytale Dreamtime 4ply, by Patons , and the hooksize is 1.3 mm. A small hook!
A slightly more detailed picute..yes yes, i am sure you can find some mistakes here..but remember, this was just a test;) Tomorrow when it's dry after blocking it will be lying on my 5 years old daughter's night stand.
But still, I am pretty proud of it, and even the hubby seemed impressed:) So there you have it!
Have a nice weekend, and tell me what you think of this project..!

Hermione's hat

Hi everyone, I am back again. Just because I haven't updated lately doesn't mean I am not knitting. Just the opposite actually. This is Hermione's hat that I finsihed some days ago.It took me a few weeks to make it, but that is because I was really busy knitting another project , so I only did a couple of rounds here and there. I am certain it would have taken me only a day or two if I focused on it:)

I do like this colour..Mixtures Cranberry -Life by Stylecraft. I think it will be a good colour for cold Scottish Autumn weather. I still need the summer to arrive before i want to start using it though!

I am also knitting a shawl in the same colour, it could be nice to wear matching hat and shawl once in a while don't you think?

Now, how do I decide what knitting to bring on holiday? We will be spending two weeks in my hometown in Southern Norway also known as Sørlandet, and I have no clue what to bring..!Better make a decition before next Thursday anyway since that's the day we are going! Wish me luck:)

Thank you very much for coming, and let me know you were here will you?
Love Linn

I have started a bag project, and here's how it will look. I haven't decided 100% yet, but I have started crocheting the large yellow square. it will be a rose in grey pearl cotton.
I will of course not use these colours, the colours will be grey and pink. I think this will be a FUN thing to do, and my first bag:)

I am continuing kntting the wedding Afghan, i need to be finished ny May 27th. I will be going to Glasgow knit 'n' stithc tomorrow and that means about 2 hours of knitting time..that'll help-, definetly!

Take care, and see you soon!
