Terje`s lifelong knitting

no pattern, just knitting

Wednesday, December 29, 2004

What is the best gift for knitter? Yarn, of course. I got it and it was red one. First piece of sweather is ready now, I started a glorious Frode from E. Lavold book "Viking Patterns fot Knitting". It takes more yarn I got but I can buy it myself.

Still no pictures :(

I`d like to learn to knit gloves like Vaire makes but I do not have a instructions. In my books is only a traditional way to make a thumb and it is not the Vaire`s way.

What have I made? No gifts at all.Because I do not know would they like it or no. I knot a shneemann with scarf and hat and with nice red nose. It looks like a gift for a little child, maybe I will found somebody.

Then I spent lot of time knitting a white baby-ansamble, still working. And then I worked about half meter blanket. I have lot of yarn, which are just remainder. Do get a room to the closet I decided to use them to knit a blanket. Like I did years ago for dog.

Devan is ready now! Most time I spent for sewing, again. Knitting is easy and fun but I hate sewing.

Poncho is ready too. I like to wear it now. I made a little V-neck too, even it was not in the original pattern. In this way it fits better, I do not have a original colors anyway.

Yesterday I finished the last piece of my poncho. I made it using this violet yarn bought a few time ago. And today I readed that Catherine Zeta Jones knits ponchos between the shooting sessions. And she allredy made a 15 ponchos and she plans to make 20 ponchos more before the christmas. How is this possible? Which number needles she is using? Hugde, I am sure. Not like me - nr 3,5.

This is not a best picture. I cant see the pattern at all. Anyway all teh glove is made two right and two left - repeat three rows and there switch. Like a chessboard.

Yesterday I finished first red glove. Why is this so hard, I started three or two weeks ago, but they are not ready yet. Of course, needles are relly thin, nr 1,5 maybe and yarn also. But I am known as a fast knitter. Ok! I ma going to finish the gloves as soon as possible. only 4 fingers to do. It is not to much.

Triinu lost the second glove I made for she. It is now somewhere in the school, nice and unique I am sure nobody has such kind of gloves. Unfortunately I do not have yarn any more to knit the new one. Only a bit.<7p>

Edit 03.12: gloves are ready !!!
