Knitting with friends

5/08/2008

Last wednesday evening was spent at Linus´ house, because the day after was May 1st, so we could stay up late, knit, eat and drink a little wine and beer =)


From the left: Babbs knitting a baby jacket, Virtuella knitting a scarf, and Linus crocheting a top for her daughter

Cruzidull is expecting a babygirl any day now, and she knits a dress for the baby.

Gro doesn´t have a blog -yet- , but she´s knitting a Babyborn sweater for her niece´s doll.

Halaisa doesn´t blog either-anymore- and she´s knitting the beautiful Cobblestone sweater by Jared Flood for her husband.

This is a detail from my Evening shrug, I found the pattern at PurlBee´s blog

and made a t-shirt version, a very quick knit, using three strands of Panda Silk. The shrug is perfect- it warms my shoulders on cold evenings. I love to wear sleeveless tops, so I needed one of these. It won´t be the last one! Because of the luxurious feel of the yarn I think I can probably wear it with dresses as well.

I picked up my preciousss Macbook today, they´ve spoiled me with a new keyboard and a new "outer" skin, because they found a lot of mistakes made from the factory. The mysterious noise from the CD-player is now gone, and it feels like having a new machine. Love it! Finally I can write on my thesis outside in the sun.

Enough blogging for today, I´ll post photos of soon-to-be finished arms and body for the Fanakofte I´m knitting, I was lucky to find the yarn with a little help from a fellow Raveler . The brown Kauni is on its way in the mail, and in the meantime I´m knitting on my Hourglass Sweater, crocheting on my yellow shoppingbag and trying to motivate myself to knit some more stripes on the Halsstriber scarf.

...and I´m supposed to study a little bit in between exercising ( bought new aerobic shoes today), work and knitting..

  1. For nokre herlege bilete. Kjekt å kunne komme saman slik og strikke.

    Flott marius-genser lenger nede på sida. Likte varianten med kvit grunnfarge.
    Du er heldig som får til å strikke med fleire fargar.

  4. Heisann! Bare innom for å ønske deg god helg! Så koselig det så ut på strikketreff. :) Mange fine prosjekter du har på gang også. Her hos meg er ikke strikkelysten på topp for tida, men får håpe den kryper frem igjen etterhvert. Hvordan går det med eksamen da? Lykke til!! :)
