Mistery mittens

I took part in mystery knit along in september,...   sadly the mittens are a bit to wide for me.





I also tried another yearn, and they came out even bigger.. and didn´t knit up very well...so they are on my frog list... but I learned a new method for thumbs, that I will definately use again, the picking up stitches for the thumb took about 10 seconds, instead of my frustrated trying to see which stitches I shoulc pick up :)

September mystery mitten

I saw hos Monstermønster that she is participating in September mystery knittalong in the group "i make mittens" on Ravelry and I got tempted to also take part.  I have already bought the pattern, and I'm contemplating which yarn combinations to use (took these photos on my phone last night, sorry for the quality).

1

2

3

4

Which of these combinations do you prefer, 1,2, 3 or 4?

There must be something wrong with my comment sections, I haven´t been able to respond to Heidi at Wool rocks, I called the Fana sweater I´m working on the danish island Fanø. Thank you Heidi for pointing that out to me :)

Summer love

The summer went by to fast,  I however knitted a lot (frogged a lot)

The blue sand cardigan has half of arms,  inside of pockets is also missing, and the edging.  This is probably at least one weeks worth of evening knitting in fromt of the TV.


We enjoyed the Icelandic summer (aka rain and some more rain.. or heavy clouds), in two summer houses in the south of Iceland.


Then we went to Norway, to visit my sister in law and her family.


What ended up in my suitcase, was both Finull and P2 from Rauma. 



the black and white Fanø in progress is for my 4 year old, in P2.


I participated in  10k race (Reykjavikurmarathon), on cultur night in Reykjavik. Where this yarn bombing caught my attention (on the way from the car to the start of the race).

My summer ended last night, with a Justin Timberlake concert (hence the title summer love ).  The first time Justin comes to Iceland and the concert was everyting I expected and then some more.  When I watch this clip from last night I get goosebumps and whish that I could go again.

Neckwarmer the sequel

Last September I knitted this neck warmer, and it was used all through last winter, but it got lost this spring... yes we indeed need neck warmers during spring, and if to be honest also on occasion during the summer.  I therefore had no choice but to knit another one, it also had to be marked with S as the previous one, but the mouse was forgotten luckily.  I took the pictures at the place where it will be used, kindergarten.
And now I have only one neck warmer to go, since my younger daughter will also need one.







Pattern : is from the book strikk til nøstebarn
Yarn: Dale alpakka, 
needles: 3.5mm
made for: my soon to be 4 year old

Time flies when having fun


This is the only finished object from May,  let´s hope they will be more in June.  I´m working on a Cardigan for me, it´s not knitted in the round, and I must say I prefer to knit in the round. 

The socks are for my can´t wait until I´m 4 year old (birthday in august).  I still have yarn for socks for my 1 year old, not sure whether I should just knit more socks for my 4 year old, because It seems that I never can find socks that match.
