Happy Valentine

Wintertime and a little time for knitting.Today the little cardigan is totally ready for our little grandchild hopefully coming inte next 2 weeks.I made it in M&K Eco cotton.A simple but a very nice pattern.It's so special to do something for someone you don't know,not yet.I choosed cotton as it's going to be born in Tokyo as they only have a very short wintertime.The choice of colour was inspired by the baby room in soft colours,mostly in off white and details in soft green. I wish all my readers a nice Happy Valentine (Still you can't write any comments as I try to get rid of those who are sending spam.I'm so happy you are visiting me.)

Christmas gifts,snow and a part of an embroidery.

We have a clear not so cold winter day and I have been taking some photos.First I want to show you a lovely bowl I'v got from a dear penfriend in Japan and a wonderful little sashoko tablecloth from a penfriend in USA.What a happiness to get real letters and small gifts from friends I'v never met but we have been penfriends for many years.Very very inspiring. In the forest we have at least 50 centimeters of snow and the trees are covered by snow.I have taken a long walk enjoying the white landscape and today most of the streets are ready to use. I'm participating in a SAL in a yahoo group and there we are doing small items in ,for me,linen fabric 32ct.Hard for the eyes but it goes even if it goes slowely.We use a varigate DMC 115.at the end t's going to be a pincushion/biscornu. http://aurelle.over-blog.com/article-grille-gratuite-biscornu-rouge-117219323.html Dear friends. Still you can't give commentaries as I have had problems with a lot of SPAM.I'm so thankful you are visiting me and I can see that some of you are.

I want to say thank you for all the cards and gifts to me and to the family,especially to M in USA and to M in Japan who I don't meet during the Christmas holodays. 2014 has been a year focused on knitting socks and the small white socks also give you an information about 2015.Hopefully we are going to get a new family member. Wish you some nice holidays/a nice weekend.

A new white weekend

December 20 and we have got lovely white snow.Now we really need warm socks and the green ones you can see on the picture are made of 75% wool and 25% others.The foot is made by handdyed yarn and the cuff of Regia yarn.Both the skeins of yarn are in a good quality and very lovely to knit with.The handdyed of unknown brand is in very high quality,I would say it's the best one.The Christmas decoration is from a dear friend. Wish you all a lovely weekend.Take care of you and enjoy the days.Don't be in a hurry,the Christmas comes even if you don't have many gifts to your family and friends or many dishes on the Christmas table.We are going to have more daylight now and gopefully you all can be out for walking or skiing or......... (Still I have the commentaries closed.)

Hand dying yarn

En så trevlig lördag med Handvävarna i norr då vi färgade ullgarn och en bit ylletyg.Vi lekte verkligen med färger och jag lyckades också använda andra färger än de blå.Blev så inspirerad av en virkad del av en väska som var gjord i liknande färger.Garnerna kan användas vid vävning,stickning eller virkning . http://www.riksvav.se/norrbottenkretsen Yesterday we hade a wonderful day hand dying wool yarn and a little peace of wool fabric.Darker blue and lilac are my favourite colours but I also did one skein in colours a friend had nade a little crochet part of a bag.Then yarn can be used in weaving,knitting or crochet,

October in stitches

We have been playing with different stitches during the first part of October. First of all "kråkspark" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncpRTKHeg_A and french knots https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3PLmGY3AVI The course started with black yarn on white fabric and then white on black.A good start of learning more about doing own interpretations of stitches in combination. As you can see we have got a little snow now but soon it´s going to melt down.The colder season is here and I need a new shawl now and I do it in the same way as earlier.i wish you all a nice day. As you can see my comments are shut down and it´s because I have got so many spam comments every day.I'm so happy if you go on visiting my blog.
