fulfilled promise

Oh, and I seem to have promised to show this photo of "proud knitter wrapped in shawl"

Look! I knit!

It's my grey on grey Venezia. Rolff thinks I should prioritize cuddling to knitting though.

Other than that - We bought a house! And I'm moving into a dream home in the woods outside Gothenburg next weekend.

It's hanging, still slightly damp, tempting me. It's done. Finally.
It was my project for the IAAF World Championships knit-along, but I ran out of yarn and finished late. It's the luscious Noro Silk Garden Sock, that behaved awfully while knitting, but is blocked out to one of the most beautiful knitted surfaces I've ever seen! I cast off using a cotton linnen blend in a solid brown-grey color to get a steady edging, and I must say that was a stroke of brilliance on my part!

More pictures will be posted when I can show the whole thing wrapped around a proud knitter!

omg crochet!

Look! I can crochet! I even freestyled the trousers (deliberately wonky).
He needs a name though... Any suggestions?

new pattern!!!

A versatile, simple and whimsical hat pattern is born.
"Mysse" is now published over at visalisadesign!

I'm making other examples of it to show you.
Bright blue with a knot on top for example...

green silk

A little scarf to go with the big grey collar on my new jacket.
It's pure silk and it's super duper green! The pattern is "Woodland Shawl" - easy peasy repeats and fun all around. It's been the perfect busride companion.
I'm surprised that so few have commented on the purl side of this pattern! It's just as gorgeous as the leafy side!

green tam

I bought a new grey jacket, and suddenly I needed a green new hat.
Because red hair plus green hat equals fabulous.

The color is more true in the photo taken with the flash, but the pattern shows better in the other two.
Pattern: Sunflower Tam from the book Knitting Nature.
Yarn: Garnstudio Alpaca held double
Changes: Ribbing done with twisted knit stitches, and the "cabled stitches" were done "my way" rather than the way the pattern suggested. I just like it the way I like it.

The first four dwarves from the fairytale about Snowhite found their way to my Etsy shop!
I found this old jigsaw in an auction and I love it so much!
Only four brooches done so far, but the prince, the crone and the others will get on there eventually. I just need to resupply!
Go check it out!
