Oh so bright!

This year, all four kids have gotten a knitted sweater. Unlike others perhaps, I don’t love making big items for the kids. I do love finishing them and seeing the kids happy! But I have less patience with my knitting when I know they will grow out of them soon. But still! I promised, and so far, 3 of 4 […]

Knitted pet stuff

I love the leash I made, so I made one for my Secret Santa swap on Redditgifts as well! My giftee has a female dog, so I was happy to be able to use some purple! Hopefully they will like it. I also made a black and blue one that I’ve put up for sale. My giftee also has 2 […]

Mittens!

It’s winter, and that means time for mittens! I get cold easily, so I need to wrap myself up in wool. And what’s better than items you knit yourself? These mittens were a mystery knitalong from The Needle Lady, so I had no idea what they would look like. But I am very pleased with the result! They’re so wintery. […]

Knitted leash and collar – pattern

I love how it turned out! It has just the right amount of elasticity, is super light and very comfortable. And it looks […]

Headbands for everyone!

As I mentioned in my last post, I need those small, instant gratification projects from time to time. I found that the headband I made was so nice and cozy that I wanted another one! So I made one, just with thicker needles and a different twist. I love these little projects. And the kids wants some too! So I […]

Instant gratification

Sometimes, in between the larger projects, I need something small. I need that instant gratification from a project I can finish quickly! Headbands, mittens, hats… This time, it was a headband! Just a very simple, cozy and warm headband with a twist. Aran weight yarn, 5 mm needles, 46 stitches. For my head I knitted 48 cm before twisting the […]

Mittens!

I recently finished this lovely pair of mittens, which will be perfect for the cold, autumn days ahead! It was a test knit for Pinneguri, and the pattern was published today. Here is my Ravelry project for the mittens. The pattern name is “Vottene Ylva, storesøster”. I knitted the mittens in handspun, plantdyed yarn! The yarn is a natural gray […]

WIP’s!

I try to never have more than one project on the needles at one time, except for my little “travel-shawl” that I bring along if I need something easy when traveling. So in other words, I am not really one of those knitters who have a ton of WIP’s! At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself. And then I […]
