Today I picked up my well deserved knitter's gold medal!
And since yarnharlot mentioned me (I could NOT be more proud. It feels like being accepted to a knitter's hall of fame to be mentioned in that blog right now) I have had some questions about my Birch.
First: Yes, it's huge. I wanted it huge. After having seen the Birch Amy made for Mandy I wanted my own BIG Birch.
Second: I'm a loose knitter AND I used 6mm needles instead of 5mm.
Third: I used almost 4 skeins of Anny Blatt's Fine Kid (color Cordouan)
And I am amazed myself I did it in two weeks. But it's been hectic at work and knitting is my way of Not Thinking Of Work, I haven't really cleaned or done housework at all during the Olympics. I have been Knitting, Watching the Olympics (damn Sweden did good this time!) and Managing the Team Sweden Blog.
This week I'm trying crocheknit for the first time, and wondering what I want to do for the Paralympics...
Welcome new readers. It's not all knitting in here, but right now it's all I have in my head.
