Thursday, July 14, 2011


I followed the pattern until the last rows but then I couldn´t figure out what I'm going to do.

And the last rows like this:

row 1 " k2tog,k2,yo,k1,yo,k2,k2tog"
row 2 k
row 3 knit row 1
and so on until you feel it's perfect for you.

I found out I had one stitch to much so I made a double k2tog in the end of the first knittting of row 1.

God luck with your knitting.

A summer bag from M

This bag has really a smart construction as it's so small when you don't use it.My friend is a very good designer of bags,both in crochet and knitting and she makes them so perfect.Thank you dear M
Just now we have roses in the garden but it's a short time so I choosed to use them as a background to the bag.We also have + 25.8 C.A very warm day in the north of Sweden

A new bag of the rest of the blocks

My Friday started with stick walking at 06.00 in the morning as I know the day is going to be very warm,at least +25C.Then 2 cups of tea,an early breakfast and some houres of sewing.A perfect start of a day.
Some blocks were not used for the tablerunner so I made a new little bag of it.For the handles I used other scraps from my stash.

I wish you all a lovely day.

Tablerunner and a potholder

A tablerunner made by blocks made by someone and they were in a scrap bowl when we had the last workshop.Beautiful colours and a nice pattern.Not 100% perfect but so so nice.Really something perfect in our kitchen.

A quilt friend of mine made such a beautiful potholder and I got the pattern from her.
It's made by hand dyed fabric .We have sunny summer days now so this is a celebration to the summer.
