Blanket/ Teppe # 2

February 9th, 2009 admin Posted in FO 2009, Hekling/Crochet, Knitting 4 Comments »

These squares have been lying in a bag for 2 or 3 years! I finally started on the job! All I have to do now is crochet an edging. And iron it. Great! But what a job!!!

Disse lappene ar lagt i en pose i 2 eller 3 år! Endelig har jeg fått fingeren ut og begynt på å sy sammen teppet. Alt som gjenstår er kanten rundt. Og damping. Deilig! Men for en jobb!!!

Noen av der kjenner kanskje igjen lappene deres? Det er fra lappeteppealongen jeg var med på engang.

This is a jacket for myLYS. It is my basic pattern (see sidebar), with a little pattern-twist 🙂 It’s still wet, that’s why it looks kinda unfinished.

Dette er en jakke for garnbutikken min. Det er mitt basis-mønster (se i sidebars), med en liten mønster-vri. Den er fremdeles våt, det er derfor den ser litt “rynkete” ut.

Frida!

The best friend ever? I sent her, Frida, a suggestion on what she could buy to her husband this Christmas, and got this in return! Is she great or crazy? Or both?  😉

Bestevenn for alltid? Jeg gav henne, Frida, et forslag til hva hun kunne gi sin mann til jul, og som takk fikk jeg dette! Er hun flott, eller gal? Eller begge deler?  😉

I joined this exchange before Christmas and sent this scarf/shawl to USA. She has recieved it now, and was pleased with it, so I guess it’s safe to show it to you! I haven’t recievd mine yet.

Jeg ble med i denne byttingen før jul, og sendte dette skjerfet til USA. Hun har fått det, og likte det, så da er det vel trygt å vise det frem til dere. Har ikke mottatt mitt enda.

 Another Fiona. This time made in Duo, handpainted. Not pleased with the colors, so I suppose I’m going to dye it.

Enda en Fiona. Denne gangen laget i håndfarget Duo. Ikke fornøyd med fargene, så denne blir nok farget på nytt.
