Silken Threads -

In 2007 I knitted the following items: Moonlight cardigan Legwarmers Grace sweater A Bamboo cardigan Ballet camisole A scarf Breezy cables The last one is the one I am most proud of as it is the most difficult thing I've knit. Thanks to the warm winter, I've already had a chance to wear it a few times. It's hard to pick a favourite, though, I use them all quite often. Well, not the leg warmers that much and also the bamboo cardigan hasn't seen the light of day that often as it was sans buttons...

Minulla on ollut suuria vaikeuksia saattaa kudottuja sukkia loppuun asti, ei vain ole kiinnostanut. Viimeisenä keinona testasin muualla hyväksi havaittua taktiikkaa, eli tarpeeksi erikoisen kuvion valitsemista, ajatuksena että sitten en ainakaan kyllästyisi kesken kaiken. Ja tämä toimi! Lopputuloksena elämäni ensimmäiset ihan omasta aloitteesta loppuun asti kudotut sukat. Ohjeen löysin Ravelrystä, mallin nimi on Magic Mirror-sukat . Valitsin hieman pätkävärjätyn langan...

Tässä nyt sitten suurin osa niitä näperryksiä, jotka piti esitellä jo aikaa sitten, mutta kameraongelmien takia en voinut. Rannikkaat bambupuuvillasta. Lanka on todella mukavaa, mutta olisi mukavaa, jos värit olisivat olleet kerässä vähän tasaisemmin jakautuneena. Käytin Ravelrystä löytämääni ohjetta nimeltä Cabled Colourscape -rannikkaat. Mukava ohje, uskoisin muuttaneeni jotain, mutta en enää muista mitä. -------------- Now here's the bulk of what I wanted to show, but...

Anteeksi, että tulokset ovat kestäneet näin kauan. Tuli hieman esteitä työasioiden takia, jotka kuluttivat kaiken elämän. Mutta voittajat on arvottu ja paketit lähtevät kun saan osoitteet. Eli voittajat ovat: I'm sorry, it has taken this long for the results. I had some job related things, that ate up all my life. But the winners have been selected and the packages will be sent when I get adresses. So the winners are: Eli Marty voitti ensimmäisen vaihtoehtonsa, Happy Hooker -kirjan ja...

Siivoilen tässä kirjahyllyä ja myös käsityökirjoista on karsittava. Haluaisin kuitenkin antaa niille kodin, jossa niitä arvostetaan. Siksi nyt muutaman viikon ajan arvon pois kirjoja hyllystäni. Tämän kertaisessa arvonnassa ovat englanninkieliset Stich 'n Bitch -kirjat: The Knitter's Handbook ja The Happy Hooker. Neulontakirjan kylkiäisenä lähtee myös pieni yllätys. Osallistua voi kommentoimalla tätä blogikirjoitusta ja mainitsemalla kumman kirjan arvontaan haluat osallistua...

Joulunpyhinä tein.Vironvillasta. Pesin ja pingotin. Pitäähän se nyt näyttää. Revontuli-huivi . ------------ Made this over christmas. Estonian wool. Washed and blocked. Would be shame not to show it. Revontuli-shawl .

Lahjaksi saadusta viheroranssista Zauberballista kudottu Nessie-huivi . Lanka oli ohuempaa kuin mallihuiveissa ja huomasin liian myöhään, että sen takia olisi pitänyt luoda enemmän silmukoita, joten omasta Nessiestäni tulikin Pikku-Nessie. Huivi on shaalikokoisen sijaan enemmänkin kaulurikokoinen, mutta tämä on onnekas sattuma, koska tämä on omaan käyttööni erinomainen koko. Värit ovat ihanan kirkkaat ja lanka ylellisen pehmeää. Muodoltaan Pikku-Nessie toimii lähes kaulurin...

Again a “first born”. I’ve never done much of a knitting, this is the first shawl ever. Of course I gave it to the only person on earth who REALLY would appreciate and admire it: my dear Mother! lol (And she looks like she’d drown in it, sitting in a wheelchair, but yet she uses […]

I got so excited about the shawl I made for Mom, that I wanted to start another. I’m not sure whether I’m gonna wear it myself or give to Granny…. It’s a bit alarming that I actually like this kind of “bric-a-brac-mohair” -threat, I mean it has the sparkles & all… To me it gives […]

There seems to be a nice trend going on: everybody is knitting dishcloths. I found a bunch of patterns from blogs here and there and now I'm knitting one for myself. I'm using Bamboo yarn, which I heard is antibacterial and also very water absorbent. I chose black colour so that dirt wouldn't show easily, but actually now I'm planning to make several more in different colours too. Here is the pattern I'm using, but surely you could make any kind of pretty cloths to adorn your kitchen. Olen...

I'm in a Facebook group called Addicted to Sock Knitting. Last year there arised an idea of a sock yarn club but you took all the yarn from your own stash. 12 yarns, one for each month. The Knit-from-stash Sock Club was born and Heatherly Walker was so kind that she will offer 14 patterns for the year 2015. We get the pattern of the month on the last day of previous month via Ravelry. First pattern is called "The Hornet" (will be on sale in Ravelry in February). I call my socks "Beauty and the...

I needed more hats so I made some. :) I finished the first one on 18th of January, I started it last November but for some reason it became a UFO for a while. I wanted a hat that is loose so it doesn't flatten my hair. The pattern is from my head. Here comes: "Pearl" "Pearl" Yarn: Garnstudio DROPS Karisma, colour 52, 100g (yarn doubled) Needles: 6mm I was in need a very basic black hat. One that doesn't have Toyota or Playstation written on. ;) I stumbled upon a "Snowtracks Cap"-pattern and...

I am confused and it’s not the first time. And this is no time to be confused – this is the time for decisive action. A couple of hours ago I suddenly realized that there is one more Christmas gift I really need to knit, and it’s a biggie. These Drops Tights.  Let’s not even […]

Nearly two weeks of the new year have gone in a blink of an eye. I have been on vacation, and then sick leave (it’s just sinusitis). For the duration of my vacation I experienced something that turned out to be rather wonderful. What with one thing and another, mostly because I couldn’t be arsed, […]

So I came up with one more Christmas project. Aran weight, super simple socks in a women’s size, so why not. Socks whip up really quick when there are only 48 stitches in a round. These were quick even though I had to rip out the toe decreases. That was down to stupidity: I couldn’t […]

We had about a week or so of beautiful, snowy weather (or it could’ve been two weeks, I don’t really have a sense of time worth anything.) So I was planning to take pictures of my finished Apis Dorsata mitts outside. The yarn is pretty but hard to capture in artificial lighting. However, since I […]

Over the weekend I couldn’t work on Christmas projects, so I began a new project that randomly struck my eye on Ravelry. Now this shawlette is probably doomed to languish in the UFO bin. It’s the Aranami shawl (Ravelry link) and it has taught me a lesson or two about my knitting preferences. The pattern project is […]

Christmas 2013 was the Christmas I was absolutely spoiled with crafty gifts. It’s rare for me to afford a sweater quantity of yarn, for instance, but with a giftcard I could treat myself to that luxury, in the form of this superwash merino yarn. And one person had tucked this gorgeous merino and silk blend […]

It's hard to start writing after a long pause. Actualy, I have been thinking about writing here for a long time. I just haven't done it. I partly blame writer's block and partly thesis... I also wasn't sure if to start blogging again about a trip to a volcano or about knitting. Well, even though some of you might prefer the volcano, you'll get knitting pictures for now. There are less pictures of my projects than of the volcano, so it's simply easier. But I promise the volcano pics later! Even...

FO: Clapotis Yarn: Artesano Hummingbird, 300g Needles: 4mm For pictures of me wearing it, see the project page In knitting this Clapotis I also realised something about what guides me in choosing projects. Although knitting is supposedly for my own entertainment only, I still find myself considering expectations and norms. We all fall for this sometimes -or I at least would like to think that I am not the only one who might borrow the latest prize winner from the library just because it's a...

I was shopping with my friend and saw this beautiful pink yarn on sale. Eventhough my goal is to reduce the amount of yarn I have I still bought four skeins (200g). I justified it with a promise to knit them right away. :) For a while I have been meaning to knit a gardigan for my dear niece. So I already knew in the store that the yarn is going to be a pretty little sweater for her. The yarn is perfect in weight, colour and it is also machine washable. It took me a few hours rummaging through...

I wanted to blog about my graduation, and show you some pictures of the exam (and mostly, the graduation shawl I knitted). But. All the pics - except the above pic of the lovely roses he gave me - are in boyfriends computer and apparently it is very difficult to send them to me... Yes, I took the exam in the end of March and yes, I have been constantly reminding him of sending me the pics. So, if I waited to get the photos, this blog might be silent for a long, long time. But - the good news...

My good intention to blog more often has been complicated by the fact that we still don’t have internet in our home. I hope there will be some kind of change in that in very near future; I’m tired of going to the University every da y just to check my mails. But well, we’ll see. Otherwise everything is going fine. I finally got a job last week. You can’t imagine ohw happy and relieved I am! Especially because my new job seems to be interesting and challenging. I can’t start until I...

It´s been a long time since I´ve been here... Mainly because I haven´t had time to write, and when I had, I wanted to write about so manyt things it seemed a bit overwhelming. But my intention is statr writing more often again from now on. These are some of the things I've been doing these months: Travelling in Chiapas when my family came to visit in June... Knitting... But mostly I've been working with this: My thesis. It's almost finished and I hope I can give it to my committee members by...

Mum visited last week and we went winter coat/jacket shopping. Behold the results. A jacket with nice fringes on the collar, and a minibelt to tie it. I'm going to add more buttons as soon as I figure out how to use my sewing machine. I want to be able to wrap it tighter around my body when it gets colder so the wind can't get in. And a bright red winter coat with black buttons and a high collar that you could button up. Those two buttons on the collar sleeve were originally on the other side...
