Onsdagsstrikkeklub -- Yarn Along

  I dag kom sneen så - og så brød solen frem. Se hvor smukt der er i min have lige nu. Og så er det oven i købet forårsjævndøgn i dag. Dagen er blevet 5 timer og 18 minutter længere end den var ved vintersolhverv.

Today the snow came. Look how beautiful the garden is in snow and sunshine.And today is spring equinox. Our day is 5 hours 18 minutes longer than it was at winter solstice.






 Knitting with Small Things  --  LINK  --  til strikkeonsdag hos Small Things

 Minimax' hue var for sjasket og for kort, så nu prøver jeg noget nyt: Strik og trævl op på samme tid, og så strikker jeg huen fra toppen og ned, så bliver den så lang som muligt. Der er nemlig ikke mere garn, da det er noget, jeg selv har farvet. .

Minimax' hat was too big and too short. He looked like a mushroom and his ears turned cold. Now I try something; the new 'knit as you frog' or 'frog as you knit' method. And then knitting the new hat from the top down to make the hat as long as possible, there's no more yarn in  this colour, I dyed it myself.




     Minimax' sokker har det bedre. Jeg er blevet færdig med den ene. Til sidst var det næsten lidt for spændende om jeg kunne nå at lukke af inden der ikke var mere garn, men det lykkedes. 
     Nummer to er også et godt stykke undervejs, men den er blevet væk. Med et hus med mange rum og mange  tasker og strikkeposer lykkes det mig ind i mellem at forlægge noget. De dukker helt sikkert op igen, for de er blevet væk herhjemme.

Minimax' socks are progressing. One is done already, and even if it was a bit exciting when I cast off and almost made it to the end befor finishing, it turned out fine. The other sock is progressing fine as well, but now it has gone missing. The Owlery has many rooms, I have several knitting bags and other containers for UFO's and right now Minimax's sock is playing hide and seek somewhere. Well as I am sure it is in the house, I'll find it eventually.


  • Ja, så meget garn blev der i overskud, spændende :)
  • I did not cut any yarn off. That IS the end. Quite drama provoking :)

  1. Det smarte ved at strikke huen oppefra er også at du evt. kunne supplere med en kant af noget andet? Evt. striber i bunden. Hvis den unge mand ellers er til det.... ;)

    1. God idé, men tanken er jo at nu strikker jeg den, så den er lidt stram i vidden. Den første hue er strikket med 99 masker, og afløseren kun med 81. Så må den jo blive et par centimeter længere med det samme garn.

  4. That hat picture is somehow optimistic and a little sad at the same time.

  5. Oh the drama of a rapidly disappearing skein of yarn! I've had a few occasions when I've made something from stash where I've had to be a little inventive towards the end! I do hope you can find the sock :)

  6. Uglemor,

    The snow is beautiful! I can't believe you had just enough yarn to finish the mittens!

  7. Thanks for sweet comments. The other sock decided to re-appear tonigth. It was in a bag, where I have been looking 3 or 4 times already. That's just our crazy bermuda-triangles teasing me again.
