I've been a knitter since 2004. I was hooked from the first stitch. This is my blog on knitting and sewing. And any other craft I happen to take a liking to.

the first FO of 2007

Looking through my FO's from 2006, it seems like I din't knit much. I did though, but several projects are still UFO's or frogged and forgotten. I hope that 2007 will turn out more finished knitting projects. But finishing things, especially lots of them, is not a goal in itself. I want to knit beautiful and useful things. Gifts and things I want to keep. My fist FO in 2007 is a gift. Well, sort of, the recipient bought the yarn himself. But I knitted of course. It's my first pair of gloves. It won't be my last, but I can admit that I was a bit fed up with them at the end. I probably won't knit another pair for a while. This project was aslo my first real fair isle project, and I'm rather satisfied with the result, but not entirely. Keeping tension is a tricky thing. But, they're good enough for me, and S says they're good enough for him, so I'll just leave it at that. The colours are great, though! I probably wouldn't have chosen them for myself, but now that I see them together like this, it seems that we couldn't have made a better choice.


fair isle gloves
Since we have very few hours of proper daylight I haven't been able to take any decent photos. You'll just have to be satisfied with these blurry ones. And a few I took using flash.

Pattern: "Knitting Fair Isle Mittens and Gloves" by Carol Rasmussen Noble
Yarn: Kampes 2-ply 100% wool
Yarn Source: Marias Garn
Needles: dpns 2.5 mm at the cuff and 3 mm rest of glove
Modifications: Not as many colours as stated in the pattern.


The book by Carol Rasmussen Noble is a real treasure of wonderful patterns and I can warmly recommend it to anyone who enjoyes knitting mittens and gloves. The patterns are all very beautiful, and I know I will knit several of them in the future.

Grattis! Verkligen ursnygga! Missade tyvärr Ginos ikväll. Har rätt mycket på jobbet och ville därför gå hem och vila mig istället, men tänkte att det kanske var sista gången du kunde gå innan det var dags för dina kvällskurser igen :-(. Hoppas du nu blivit av med din förkylning. Tack för att du lade upp min tröja på bloggen. Scarfen blev klar i helgen och jag är faktiskt helt nöjd med den också.
Ha det bra!
