Pink mittens

 mittens, pink, Yr, Sisu, Two at the same time, magic loop

Planning to start communicating very short.

I made these to keep practising the magic loop, and knitting two at the same time. Starting form the top of the mittens.

I added rather long cuffs so the little one should not get cold when playing outside.
Good chance to practice some techniques.

Machin knitted mittens

I will not give up....
I will not give up....

I am just not able to get as good results on the knitting machine as with hand knitting.

This time I tried to follow the recipe in a machine knitting book.
Pair number 1 to short for the recipient, but luckily found an owner with shorter fingers than Sofie.

The other pair - clearly! I had to make just that cm to long.
But Sofie liked the colour and the pattern. And have been using them.

Yarn from Hillesvåg.

Brigth Yellow hat

My young granddaughter is not very big for her age. And I often end up knitting a slighjtly smaller size than the recipe for the garment to fit.

This time, I did not use a recipe- just measured around her head, counted the stitches and made a hat.
Filcolana Arwetta Classic.

And I made a little neck piece for her as well.

She came visiting, and tried it on. The neck piece were way to short.
The hat seemed to fit- but kept working it's way op her head.

We agreed that I shoukld make her a new one, Pink.
And we could save this for Lillebror when he would be big enough to use it.

At least he will be easy to keep track of.

I saw this nice tittle top at Geilsk web shop, and I just had to wait til my granddaughter was big enough to knit it to her.

Cotton/wool blend and the stitches gave it a light, soft fabric. 
The shaping of this garment was perfect for the young lady.
And it was pink.
We really like Pink for the time being.
Not Yellow anymore. 
The stitches - in English "Extended Open-Work Stitch"

Non-stop - shirt

When Sofie and I left for Lanzarote for our "Spring vacation", I brought with me thin knitting needles, and two skeins of Filcolana Arwetta classic.
And a recipe that reminded of Baby in rib, but an easier design for shoulders.

So an undershirt/T-short- short sleeved blouse for Yr.

..and the YR picked buttons....
