Min dygtige niece / My skilled niece
Hun ville strikke sig et stort halsrør, helst med hætte, og det måtte gerne være grønt.
Der blev fundet uld og mohair fra garnudsalg, og vi blev enige om striber. Derefter sjussede jeg mig frem til maskeantal, og så gik det ellers over stok og sten!
At some point in October, my niece was sitting here in my livingroom, telling me she didn't have a knitting project! Just as we were leaving for Disneyland! Of course I couldn't live with that knowledge (I guess this was actually part of her calculations!), so I took a good look at my stash.
She wanted to make a big cowl, if possible with a hood, and the color should be green.
I found some wool and mohair from garnudsalg, and we agreed on stripes. I took a wild guess about the number of stitches, and then it just started growing!
Nu vil den kvikke læser så nok spekulere over, hvad niecen så brugte tiden på, når nu strikketøjet var færdigt? I har gættet det, ikke? Hun fik da bare et nyt fra lageret.......
Almost 2 weeks ago she came for a visit with knitting and Disney movies. Great combination, by the way! When she arrived, she was ready to make the hood, and it didn't take her too long to finish. It got a wash and dryed before she left, so she went home with a warm head and neck. She was very happy with it and proud, too, and I understand why! It is very soft and light and warm. In total she used almost 3 skeins of 100 grams each, 2 skeins of wool, one skein of thin mohair.
And now - my bright reader - you wonder what she did visiting me, after her knitting was done? You guessed already, didn't you? She had a new project from my stash......
