Noro yarn is lovely

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.

FOs - Danica and String bag

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.

Hot water bottle cozies

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!

One on, one off the needles

This weekend I finished my third stash busting scarf, knit from one end to the other with big needles and funky yarns:


I am one for many projects on the go, so I decided to start the string bag. I decided to use some old cotton I got from Lidl at the beginning of my knitting career. Here's the humble beginnings.

Finished bed socks on holidays

Back from the holidays - the longest I've had since a while, almost 2 weeks - and slowly starting to get the hang of normal life again.

 

I got myself a new laptop, and a game to go with it; that's why I haven't blogged since New Years. First breaking my brain with Vista, and then hooked on the game I haven't even knitted this year yet!

Jay, the Walkers are done!

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!

Knitting at the park and at home

On Saturday, the long awaited knitting group gathered again.  I don't have the transport to the other meetings around the city during the week, so I'm always very much looking forward to this one.

 

It was lovely, and despite the bank holiday very popular. We were hiding at the Dublin Castle green area again (the cafe was closed)
