Fødselsdag / Birthday
De er blevet rigtig flotte, synes jeg. Mønsteret er ret nemt at gennemskue og lære udenad, og kombinationen af snoninger og ret/vrang mønster kan jeg godt lide.
The socks were finished - barely! - during the birthday celebration on Saturday evening. Feels a bit like an experience I tried a few times!
They are very pretty, I think. The pattern is quite straight-forward and easily memorized, and I like the combination of cables and knit/purl very much.
De er (selvfølgelig) strikket i wollmeise, i en grøn forsøgskanin, og jeg har brugt 120 gram.
Derudover kan jeg fortælle, at sweateren nu er nået frem til min ældste niece, og DEN PASSER! (Vild jubel på begge sider af Storebælt!) Hun er mægtig glad og tilfreds, og har lovet et billede som bevis.
Since I was knitting them on Friday night, when my nephew had his release-concert, they are anything but a surprise...... But they fitted well and he liked them (and immediately gave me the shoe-size of his girlfriend.......).
They are (obviously) made from wollmeise. The color is a green guinea-pig and I used 120 grams.
Furthermore, I can tell that the sweater reached my oldest niece, and IT FITS!
(Loud cheering on both sides of the Great Belt!) She is really happy with it and promised photographic evidence.
