Broen". Hele første sæson. Den var god!
Mens jeg alligevel sad der, gik jeg i gang med sweateren til min nevø, og jeg må indrømme, at det var herligt at strikke noget stort på pind 4,5!
Jeg besluttede mig for, at ærmet måtte være strikkeprøve, for jeg havde jo hverken løbelængde eller noget på garnet, og faktisk vidste jeg heller ikke, om det til mønsterfarve ville passe når det lå dobbelt.....
The first week of my vacation passed with a lot of things, but among these, I watched "The Bridge". The entire first season. It was really good!
While sitting there, I started the sweater for my nephew, and I have to admit that it was wonderful knitting something big using 4.5 mm needles!
I decided that the sleeve would be my gauge test, since I didn't have any information on the yarn I used. I actually didn't know either, whether the yarn for the pattern would fit when doubled.....
Glæder mig til at få lavet den helt færdig, og nyder virkelig at strikke med det lækre garn som jeg købte i Kina for nogle år siden.
And can you believe it - everything fits! The gauge is spot-on, and it looks SO good with the main and contrast color! The first sleeve is done already (and I DID increase. I don't know why it looks so straight!) and the second is started. The body won't be difficult, but the yoke will be quite a job, since that is where the pattern is!
I'm looking forward to finishing it, and I really enjoy using the really nice yarn that I bought in China some years back.
