Strikkeklub -- Yarn Along

      Der er blevet strikke rigtigt meget i Ugleboet i den forgangne uge. Et par strømper til Minimax er endelig blevet færdige. Spirillens strømper tog derimod ikke så lang tid, men hans bulne storetå vil ikke lade ham tage dem i brug endnu.

Much Kknitting has been going on. Finally I cast off the socks for Minimax. The socks for MArsupilami did nit take long to finish, but his sore toe will prevent him from using them some days yet.





      Huen af det bolchefarvede garn - mit smertensbarn - er endnu engang blevet trevlet op og strikket om. Jeg tror det er 7. gang. Men NU er den færdig! Den begynder som en strømpe der er strikket fra tåen, og fortsætter i mit bolchegarnsmønster i en modificeret hjelmfacon.

The hat made from candy coloured yarn which has been teasing me for a long time, has now seen its 7th and final frogging and re-knitting. It begins like a toe-up sock, and continues in my candy yarn pattern in a modified ehlmet shape.I find it looks a bit like a spider's web. I like spiders :)

Ofte lukker jeg for stramt af. Minimax klagede over sine strømper. Jeg har fundet løsningen. Luk af med en pind der er et par numre større. Her størrelse 6 mod de oprindelige 4½. Minimax's sokker på 2½ blev lukket af med en pind størrelse 4½, der var virkelig forskel, men det billede, jeg huskede at have taget, er væk!

Often my cast offs are too tight. The solution is to use a needle a couple of sizes thicker. Here the hat is cast off with a size 6, it was knit on size 4½

I går afteshavde vi besøg, og jeg viste mine huer frem. Sådan en måtte hun have, så jeg slog straks op. Dette billede er fra i går aftes, nu er jeg nået lidt kortere efter næsten at have trævlet det hele op for tredje gang.

Yesterday evening a friend saw my hats, and wanted one for herself. I cast on, but i have as usual been frogging and re-knitting, so far 3 times. This picture shows my progress yesterday evening. It's shorter now.

  1. Uglemor,

    It seems funny sitting here looking at your very warm and wonderful socks and hat when I am feeling so hot! We're having some very uncomfortable summer weather. I do like your knitting!

    1. I just looked at the weather forecast for Sydney. Yes it sure is hot. It seems as if cooler weather is on its way for Christmas. It's not cold here, rather dreary, rainy and grey.But when I sell soaps in a small "play house" in town, I need all my woollen gear just to stay lukewarm :) It's hard to wake up when it's semi dark until 10 and then again from 3. Hibernating seems tempting right now.
