Dette er votter i Siljagarn, mitt yndlingsgarn, hvertfall når det gjelder sokker og votter. Jeg la opp 56 m og strikket vr borden med 2r sorte , 2vr med flere farger. Pinne nr. 3.
Men så datt boka til Anna Zilborg ned i postkassa. Den hadde jeg bestilt 12. august, så den var egentlig glemt. For å finne et mønster derfra måtte jeg legge ut en m på hver p, dvs til 60.
These mittens are knitted in my favorite sockyarn, Silja from Gjestal. I CO 56 st and knitted the rib wit 2k black and 2p variegated. I had no idea about the rest.
Then Anna Zilborg's book Magnificent Mittens and Socks arrived in my postbox. I had forgot about it, not very strange, I ordered it 12th of August.
I wanted to knit one of her models AT ONCE one, but I did not want to spoil the handcuffs I already had knitted. I found this pattern and knitted from the bottom up as is usual with mittens. The next pair I will do it as she is instructed in the book.
I have finished the first mitten, I have to put in another photo of it tomorrow.
I am in the mood for small, warm things these days, like cowls, scarves, mittens, socks etc. White is not my favorite color and I seldom wear it. But the mohair yarn must attract someone else. The yarn is Kitten mohair and I used 1 skein that was in my stash.
I have finished the cowl and hope that someome want it. We are some locals here who want to have a market before Easter. Then we will sell the home made knitteing and serve coffee and cakes.
It use to be nice.
We also have a nice shop where the owner sells the local made handicrafts. It is a nice shop with a lot of nice and beautiful things.
