1 - 7. okt has Rewill on Vene street discount. I should go and by new yarn for bags. No, not yarn, I need something for felting. Last felted bag is admirable. My son saw it before and after felting, he called Wou!!. And asked again why dont I sell them. Why? For example on Mardilaat. Its coming very soon. One reason I know. I have only one bag to sell. Or two. Its not enough. And I cant imagine how I stay there all day. Shamefaced? Yep

Kajakas made a good thing. Could I say Crochet-along. No, no it is not, but something like this. I did it as well (I cant show pic) and I am sure there is lot of handiworkers-blogers who will do it. Just for having fun. Maybe its a first step to.....

Das ist die End - I habe keine camera - Vie kann ich blogging jetzt

Now I have to live all month without camera. They were a last pictures. Because I couldnt say to Leho: Dont, I need it, I need camera to take pictures if I finish something. Exactly - If. Now I have two alternatives: not to finish or keep smiling and wait until he is back. And after four weeks I have a blue cardigan (mohair), Green striped cardigan (merino) and pants for Mart, new black sweater for Karen and something for Eha. And I must finish Fifi. How could I - so many uncompleted things. And lot of picturea after month. I hope so.

Yours sincererly, Vardamoor
P.S The first one will be a bag. Its made of wool using timberhaus method (quilting) and waits for shrinkage. Second one is a sweater I made it for Eha but she doesnt like it because it is too floppy for she. Should I wear it myself?

Another snap project

. Now I completed small size socks. I do socks with ribbed leg usually and never did without it before. Next socks I should to knit using Ulla pattern from Minna. Such kind of heels I have never done before as well. Between large projects like a Fifi or blue mohair I need to do something small and quick. Like a socks. Here I used green merino wool (Novita) which I bought for sleepy-bag. Actually I started it in hospidal at april but unstiched now because Mart has now three overalls for outgoing and sleeping and one made of wool to. And they three are in same size.

I forgot to go and by Monza from säästumarket what there was as like a discounted artickel. That is true, I do not know, how much it cost at all. In another place or yarnstore and how good it is actually to knit. I like those colors and stripes, and colors generally are nice too. 25% wool and 75 % acryl is not bad at all.Of course its not the best choice but its better than 100% acryl which I used for black sweather for Eha. Acryl is cheep to by and easy to wear and I used nr 5 needles, but its really inconvenient to knit.

So, at least I started to knit something of Ulla. Fifi-huivi. Its easy to make but only at beginning when there is a few rows. After 20 cm it is going harder, because every row takes more time and shawl seems endless. However, I do. Some reason I like it. I use here my bamboo needle (nr 3,5) and some very old and unknown yarn. It is not wool or cotton, not nylon. Maybe it is silk with....I dont know but it is nice, lightweight and blue.

I bin sicher, das ist eine gute gelegenheit kleine wollreste zu verarbeiten

Nur das herbst ist zu warm und Mart braucht das nicht.

Eha s sweather is almost done. The piecies are putted together and a few rows raglan are made. I do not have enoght time to end it.

I bought Papillon Luxury mohair!!! Usually I dont look mohair because it is too expensive to me, usually. But there was almost 50% discount. Actually I love such kind yarn buut why should they be so flurry. What to do with this yarn? Even I have a feeling that I need to by all other colors too. Violet, Green, Black....Because it was so so cheep and yarn is really soft and nice.
