Easter spinning

Filed under: Spinning — knitter at 12:29 am on Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Easter Saturday is called “yarn/thread Saturday” in Finnish. This inspired me to finish a WIP spinning project. I had started to spin singles from Lap Waste from World of Wool, UK. The yarn is around DK weight. 235 grams and 560 metres before washing.

I decided to knit a cabled cardigan and spin rainbow yarn from my stash of botany lap waste from World of Wool. Later on I had the time to knit up a Revontuli shawl from the rainbow yarn.

I stopped publishing updates here, because the then new version of WordPress didn’t show any new pictures.

Here is the knitting after clue 2. There are no more pics of the shawl, and I haven’t blocked it yet. I’ll publish a picture after blocking.

Moose hunt, älgjakt, hirven metsästys

Moose hunting boys

Moose hunting boys at fire

The moose hunt started last weekend. The hunters seem to have abandoned their camp fire. Today they dropped these small boys there, and drove on into the forest.

Älgjakten startade för en vecka sedan. Jägarna tycks ha övergett sin brasplats. Idag lämnade de två små pojkar där, och fortsatte in i skogen med sina bilar.

Hirven metsästys alkoi viime viikonloppuna. Metsästäjät näyttävät hylänneen nuotiopaikkansa. Tänään he kuitenkin jättivät sinne nämä kaksi pikkupoikaa, ja ajoivat autoillaan syvemmälle metsään.

Holiday knitting season

Filed under: Cats and dogs,Life outside knitting — knitter at 5:56 pm on Sunday, September 9, 2012

The holiday knitting season has begun, so I won’t be posting pics of my knitting. Fortunately there are other things to show!

Jul- och födelsedagssäsongens stickning har satt igång, så jag kan inte visa vad jag har stickat. Men lyckligtvis finns det annat att visa!

Joulu- ja synttärilahjojen valmistus on alkanut, joten en voi näyttää neulomuksiani. Mutta onneksi on muutakin näytettävää!
