no pattern, just knitting

So I am reportin about strawberry-shawl. This shawl is knit from the bottom up. I created it using nr 5 needles, pattern from old "Pitsilised koekirjad"-book and occasionally founded angora yarn. Yarn is from Turkey. Every side is 1,5 meter and in the shawl is only 100 gr yarn.

Mittens and gloves

Novita 7 veljestä I used to knit a pair of gloves for Triinu and for me as well. She wanted gloves like mittens and she got them. . Knitting I used needles nr 2 and there was 9 stiches on the needle at beginning. For other pair I took 10 stiches at beginning and made them as usual gloves . Fingers are made with two needles.

What I really love

They are a cables by Elsebeth Lavold. I started a new cardigan using Lavolds cables from her book, white Jussi yarn and easy raglan. First time I knit two sleeves together in same time on the same round needle. But - it isnt handy at all, the threads mess up all most the time and I forget to take second sleeve as well and knit this one alone. More practise I need.
