2014!

In the first months of 2014 I promised myself to write down everything I’d craft in the year and make a fancy list of if by the end of the year. I made a list of almost everything I did and tried to put it all up on Ravelry with photos. However, some pairs of socks and mittens were missed by the camera and it’s not a complete list for the year as I’m definitely forgetting something…

So here it is, in no particular order:

Knitting 

Baby set for the wee one; a sweater, hat and socks

Ysolda’s MKAL shawl

A green BSJ

A purple BSJ

Striped socks

Kenzie shawl

And… loads of mittens, socks and hats for the kids.

Crocheting

A blanket for the wee one

 Herðubreið shawl

 Blanket for a new nephew

Jóhanna af Örk hat/cowl

 

I’m setting the goal for even more crafting in 2015!

February is for finishing!

I can’t believe it’s February already!

I just finished this blanket for the wee one, due in March. It took me days to find THE pattern but I found it! It was my first crochet square project and I really enjoyed it.

Pink Breast!

I really love yarnstorming and last October, I breast yarnstormed to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month.

I’ve made a Pink Breast crochet pattern!

Here it is and it doesn’t cost a krona:

More birthday knitting!

Inga, one of my sisters-in-law, is an opera singer, my singing teacher, and a fabulous diva. Her birthday was last July so I decided to knit her a shawl. I thought it would be perfect for the occasion to photograph the shawl on her grand piano…

Pattern:  Pretty Maids by Joyce Fassbender
Yarn:  Istex Kambarn, colorway 1218
Needles: 3.5 mm.

Baby boots!

I have so many friends having babies these days! I love to knit gifts for newborns so the last few weeks I’ve been doing blankets and little caps. The other day I bought Ysolda’s books Whimsical little knits 1 and 2 and have since knitted the cutest baby booties I have ever seen. It’s a great project if you need a little gift and a perfect opportunity to show off cute little buttons you might have in your stash :)

I also knitted a Bring-it-on-baby-blanket in bright “girlier” colors. I just love this pattern and to use bright colors!

A little blanket

Just finished one Bring-it-on-baby blanket from Pickles.no and have casted on for another one! The one I finished is for a little boy due very soon.

This blanket is an easy – and yet so cute – pattern and with the gorgeus colors of the Ístex Kambgarn it’s pleasure to knit! Having 5 friends with babys on the way fast and beautiful knits are more than welcome :)

Knitty is back!

What a summer this has been! I moved to a new place, got married (man! that was fun!) and got a summer job as a librarian!  Also lost my knitting-mojo somewhere along the way and haven’t knitted for about 1.5 months now. So what better way to kikc-start your knitting-mojo than a beautiful baby blanket?!

I’ve been looking at the Bring-it-on baby blanket from Pickles for days now and finaly bought the yarn. I bought one of my favorites, Icelandic Kambgarn, in four colors: beige, gray, blue and kind of green/blue. It’s 100% pure new wool, spun and dyed in Iceland and comes in so many fabulous colors.  The blanket will be a gift to my friends baby, a little boy due in the fall. Can’t wait to cast on! :)

And yeah, did I mention that my deliciously scrumptious and vibrant hand dyed Eigingirni can now be shipped worldwide and I accept PayPal? Yes indeed! :)

HAPPY SUMMER KNITTING!
