Prepare to felt

I have never really knitted mittens before, and I have been asked to make a felted pair. They are next on my list, but I need to knit a square of the yarn I am going to use, felt it in in the washingmachine, and calculate how many stiches I need to cast on. So, let’s prepare to felt people!

See what I got!

Sockgift!I got a really nice present last weekend, handknitted socks from a good friend of mine. I learned her how to knit socks, and now all her friends (including me) have warm feet! I love the colorcombo the most, and they have been worn non-stop since I got them.

I started a new pair of fingerless mittens today, in pink with turquoise/glittery yarn. They are for a friend of mine, who requested the colorcombo. I had to go to the doctor today, since I have a serious throathinfection, and a hard time swallowing anything. I actually started knitting the mittens there, while waiting for the doctor. I need to stay home from work tomorrow too, so I am guessing it won’t be long untill they are done. If only the headaches and pains in my body would go away, I’d be a happy bunny.

Ok, need to go back to the couch and knit, don’t you feel sorry for me? 😉

So, after months of procrastinating I put up a page of patterns in norwegian! If you are not fluent in Norwegian, you aren’t missing out yet, the only pattern right now is for basic fingerless mittens. But one day, you might wish you learned norwegian, or that I had translated my patterns. 🙂

I cleaned up my yarn stash yesterday too. Wow, I am a new and improved person this year. I put the projects that will be finished soon in the livingroom, and all unused yarn in clear plastic bags underneath the bed. I am very proud. It turns out I have enough yarn to keep me occupied for a couple of months, which is good. This month started good, if you ask me.

DW dishcloth I finished a dishcloth two days ago, I knitted two of these, and croched them together. I am in the middle of a new dishcloth now, a Baby Chubby Checkers. Dishcloths are called “grytekluter” in Norwegian, and I got a feeling this year will be a gryteklut-bonanza.
