Diva out of yarn - No LUFO 2012

I'm out of yarn and the sleeves are not yet ready.
I reknitted the sleeves in fuschia and managed to reach the armholes.
This means I'm out of the contest or the LUFO price for 2012.

I really tried but "things happened" on the way (totally out of my control)
- first knitting the sleeves in the wrong color and then
- the collar "out-side-in" and finally
- running out of yarn.

Maybe it wasn't meant for me to finish it now.
Next step is to start the hunt for extra Hanne Falkenberg yarn in the Fuschia color and hope that the shades hasn't changed much from 2006!

Time to start something new I think!

Saturday in Granhammar and more of Diva

What a day! It was an early start on the local train at 06:41 to catch the train to Örebro at 8 o'clock.
Here is the Diva project on the local train.

We arrived at Granhammar and spend a wonderful day knitting, eating, talking, laughing and occasionally buying yarn. A perfect day indoors and with perfect winter weather outside.

The yarnstore was from heaven. I'm thankful it exist but for my financial situation not within walking distance.
The room (barn) where we sat was beautiful and with Chrsitmas decorations with a theme.

My knitting project, Diva (my LUFO for 2012) in in reverse. I began to think that I didn't have enough yarn to complete it. So I started to look at the pictures and understood that I cannot have the collar and the sleeves in the same color (as the current plan was). More frogging.
At home after one day of knitting the colar I read the SMALL letters (make k2tog TBL). Why didn't I see that (READ it) before spending a full day knitting? While calculating my options and alternatives ways forward I reknit the sleeves in pink. I try to knit fast because I'm affraid that I'll ran out of the pink yarn as well.

FO November baby cardigan

I've completed the baby cardigan. I can't decide if I like selfstriping yarns when the color effect is so different depending on row length. This turned out OK.

I also heard news so I think I know who to give it to, in due time.
