I finished a pair of beautiful Fetchings in Noro Kureyon yarn couple of days ago. The funny thing is, just started them a couple of days ago! These were so quick! And they are gorgeous. I have been wearing them every day since they were finished. Here they are posing in Dun Laoghaire, where we had a little day trip today.
I have been very productive this weekend! I finished two projects, the Danica scarf and the String bag, both relatively new projects, meaning they have not waited on the needled months and months. I am pretty proud of myself how they turned out, and that I actually finished (finished! Like darning in the ends and all!) two projects in a weekend.
I went to Finland for a couple of days, to meet my family and to relax a bit. What better way to relax than going to the sauna every day, and learning to knit entrelac (not simultaneously, mind you). I cast on and made some progress on the Danica scarf during the 5 days I was there.
What do you know, I have many things on the needles: a pair of socks, a bag, a scarf and tunisian crochet, but of course then some bug bites me and I just have to start and finish two hot water bottle cozies in a few day's time. My only excuse is that the bottles are really new, and in need of cozies. Well, here they are.
The left one is made with scraps and ends of ToppTå Norwegian chunky yarn. I love it, and it is vert suitable for this purpose. Test report by Nick: excellent - the hot water bottle was warm after 12 hours in this cozy. Toasty!
I can not believe these socks are finally ready! I despised, hated them in the beginning, but after I had turned the heel on the first one (after some months of hibernating and knitting one row per week), I started taking to them. After the first one was done, beautiful and fitting better than any sock before, I quickly did the second one (took maybe only a month...)
Monen kuukauden aherruksen jälkeen Jaywalkerit ovat viimein valmiit! Ja ihanat!
