Split pee

It has arrived. My present for myself from the US.
It made it to the postal office and I collected it yesterday.
It is 9 skeins of Chikadee in the color Split pee. I also bought the color chart if (when) I decide to buy more yarn. Current plan is to make a Heathered, but it might change. (A pointed out the best pink color!)

Feels like a lovely yarn and I want to start knitting right away.

It is now very difficult to be faithful. I have already put Emelie in a bag and there is a risk that Praline goes the same way. I better not swatch just yet.

Bella, now completed

During the winter break we went swimming uin Uppsala and I got 5 minutes at Yll & Tyll and grabbed Lene's book.
The first project I made was Bella. I knitted from my stash using Muskat soft. I alterbated two skeins on the sleeves to make the stripes look almost as the body.

I would like to make more of the Bella cardigan, next time in one color. Before that on my knitting list for the girsls is the dotted cardigan. Adorable!

I has been used but my 7 year old is not at all keen to support mom with a FO picture.

Glad påsk


Morfarskofta completed

I've finished the cotton striped cardigan.

It was a fast and fun knit. I bought one pink skein to make my soon 4-year old happier. She is entering the pink-era. I was reminded how boring it is to sew in threads. It feels like it takes longer then the knitting. However I'm pleased with the result and A liked it (apart from the green pocket).
Even the buttons are from my stash.

Cotton stripes

Taking yarn from my stash to make "Morfarströja med fickor" from Lene Holm Samsoe's book "Barnstickning på stickor 3,5 - 4".
The DK cotton stash is decreasing, I hope to have enough.
