I finished the socks for [ profile] ranmaru_fics and will post them hopefully today. They are very green, as she wanted, for St. Patrick's Day. I really wasn't able to get the true green to show in the picture, no matter where I tried, so the colour is a bit more brighter than in the pic. I hope you like them :)


And I also knitted a new slouchy for myself. I absolutely LOVE the yarn. It's called Folksong Chunky, and the colours are like made for me. Teddy was my model today, because taking selfies of a slouchy really is... almost impossible, and the kids aren't at home at the moment. So here's Teddy:


Happy February to everyone, since it's almost here :)

Yeah, I've been busy with the knitting needles again. Mostly knitting socks for myself :D




And because I had leftover yarn from the green socks, I made a baby hat. I thought it would be unisex, since green is... a unisex color? But the lace of course turned it into a totally girly hat. Now, one of my friends is pregnant, and my sister-in-law is pregnant, so one of them is BOUND to have a girl, right? If not, I can just donate it somewhere, I guess.

It is way too hot here, for me that is. When the temperature hits 30 C, all I want to do, is sit in a cool shower. Which I can't do, because I would be a wrinkly blob, and our water bill would be huge :(
Also, I'm trying to keep my tomato plant alive, and now I need to water it a lot, and I'm prone to forgetting it usually. Now I can't slip up, or bye-bye sweet little tomatoes... I so want you.

Hey, you all :) It's spring, which is sort of nice, although I don't enjoy the waking of the bugs at all... Or all the dust in the air. But still not complaining.
Saara wanted a spring/summer hat thingy, and this is what I made. Also, she now has pink hair :D


She also wanted thin socks, and I found a fairly difficult pattern. They look a bit funky, because she pulled them over the jeggings, but you get the general idea anyway, I think.


And as a nice ending, this is a gingerbread tree Saara made. Doesn't look Christmassy at all, when you use these colours. I love it, and I wish I could eat it, but it's a price for a raffle...

No spring for us yet, nope... but at least it was sunny :)

Our yard


And our town

Here's a pic of the gingerbread tree finished, meaning that it's standing upright. Saara also made a gingerbread house, which was really cute and very tasty too...


sier96: (mmm)
Saara is on a gingerbread baking spree. She made a HUGE amount of the dough, and these are the first ones to be ready. I'd say they look both pretty and yummy. The bad thing is, she won't let us eat them yet... An evil, evil child :D

I went to see the Hobbit with my daughter. I wanted 2D, she wanted 3D, and somehow she always seems to win... Not that it was bad in 3D, but those glasses are just annoying sometimes.

This way! )

I made this thingy (still not sure if it's a hat, a beanie, or a beret...) for my friend Steph. That's my daughter modelling it for me, surprisingly enough. Usually Saara just gives me this "you've got to be kidding me, I will never do it" - look, when I ask for a favor like this :D She can be kind of... un-cooperative, probably thanks to her age. Well, I love her anyway, and the knitting is pretty good :)

I've been knitting a lot of regular socks, but I have also tried a bit different ones. And ta-daa! I present some pictures :)

Pictures over here! )

Was fun trying out new kinds of socks, and [ profile] borrowyourlight will get different kinds than these, since I promised to make her a pair :)
(which will be my next project, by the way)

I made these for Saara. The sock itself is very basic, the rib-knit goes all the way down the top of the sock though, so it was easy to see where the laces go. She really likes these, and already wants another pair with different colours :)

If anyone wants to play, leave me a comment and I'll choose a color that reminds me of you, then you can list ten things you like in that color or ten things that color reminds you of.

[ profile] slashbycaranfin  gave me *sigh* canary yellow... I'm not sure if I even know ten things that are canary yellow, but I picked ten yellow things I like and that'll have to do :)


This way, my friends :) )

I haven't been knitting that much in the last year or so, but now I've gotten into it more again. I made few pairs of socks, mittens, small things. And then I found a beautiful pattern and a beautiful yarn to go with it. Faster than I thought, I made THIS:

It's meant to be worn in summertime. The lace knitting makes it rather cool to wear, even if it doesn't look like it.

Here's a detail from the sleeve.

I'm so very happy that I made something usable for myself  *squees some more*
