It had been a while since last time we posted anything here, so here comes some pictures from a knit night a while ago. After some recommendations from fellow knitters I ordered some yarn from Garnkorgen , and I can really recommend the online store. I got the yarn only 2 days after ordering, and it was not that expensive either 🙂
And if you want to make some semlor, you can find the recipe here.
I have just finished this cowl, pattern can be found of Ravelry for free. It was fun to knit and I really like the yarn, even though it’s a bit itchy. I’m thinking about lining it with some fabric, but I haven’t figured out what kind of fabric that is the best. There’s still some yarn left so I think I’m going make a couple of wrist warmers as well.
Here is a shawl that Sara just finished. It’s called Nurmilintu and the free pattern can be found on ravelry. It’s a mix between lace and garter stitch. This is a good pattern if you’re new on knitting lace, and want to watch tv while you’re knitting.
Thought I could share some pictures from this week’s knit night.
I really like(d) the fur-yarn.. “it’s aaaalive” 😉
Thank you all for coming 🙂 If you want to bake the chocolate cake, the recipe can be found on igottsallskap.com (soon) it was actually a simple “one bowl cake”.
Today we went to Helsingborg to buy yarn, but we started of with “fika” at Ebba’s café, because who doesn’t need coffee/tea in the morning 😉
I think we came to the conclusion that the cakes were ok ( it could have been better).. good thing was that you could choose between A LOT of different cakes, cheesecakes, cookies etc.
Then we went to a tea/coffee shop before we went to Tant Thea which was the yarn store we really wanted to go to. Unfortunately it had moved, and what it seemed like, gotten a smaller assortment. I really wanted to buy grey sock yarn, but good thing is you can order online..right?
After a visit to a small chocolate store and a really nice toy store we actually went back to the café and had reeeeeeaaaallly nice burgers (this was probably the best part of the trip) hehe!
Today was a really good day, and if you wonder why it’s because we had a lot of fun in Copenhagen. Ferckinclerser had planned everything of beforehand and we even had maps where yarn stores and cafes were marked out. Zeta and Bonnie met up in Copenhagen.
At first we went to La Glace to have CAKE and coffee/tea. Cake to die for.
Then we went to Sommerfuglen to look at some yarn, and to buy some too.
We had lunch at Torvehallerne, Smørrebrød and pizza 🙂
Of course we also went to Uldstedet.
..and who can say no to ice cream? They were gigantic! We all ordered “small” ones.
It might be so that we have to go on a yarn trip again! It was especially fun that Zeta and Bonnie could come. (And thanks again for all the planning you did Ferckinclerser)
Top 10 baby knits in our forever queue
Sleep sacks and blankets, can’t have enough of those, right?
And of course every baby needs a fancy cardigan…
… and Totoro-inspired items. Lots of them!
Booties, can’t have enough of those!
Which patterns are in your forever queues?
It all started with a post in our facebook-group which announced; ”Ideas for baby knitting – GO!”.
A few hours later we had a long thread with useful tips and lovely pattern-suggestions. Here they come so they get to meet the rest of the internetz…
Things we actually found useful
– cardigans for newborns up to about 6-7 months or so
– sweaters from about 7 months onwards
– sleep sacks, because putting on pants takes up way too much time in the beginning
– hats with ties or balaclavas
Specific patterns are:
This cardi is amazing, I made the 1year size, and he was able to wear it at about 5 months, and it still fits comfortably now (1 year old).
Easy sleep sack pattern, I added a draw string around the waist.
Great hat if you wear the baby
Coat extension for babywearing in cold weather
This blanket have been used every day for almost two years. It might not look that special but the good thing is that it is elastic, thin and large. Its very useful!
These booties were very appreciated since I placed a drawstring around the ancle. Pretty much the only footwear that the baby didn’t manage to kick off…
It was a while since we updated the blog so here comes a post from tonight’s knit night 🙂 As usually it seems like I take pictures of everything else than yarn and needles 😉 But I guess you can see from the pictures that we had cinnamon rolls and tea AND..
If you ever get tired of knitting with needles, maybe you can try to knit with a loom. Until this morning I thought you only could knit infinity scarfs, hats and basically long tubes with a knitting loom..but no. Look at these pictures; it’s even possible to knit blankets and cables. You can find patterns for the red/blue blanket, the bear cowl, and the pink/green blanket on Ravelry. You can find more information about the “mittens” on the blog Gettin’ it Pegged.
Unfortunately it seems like the patterns are quite expensive to buy, but I don’t think it’s that difficult to figure out basic patterns on your own. There are many videos on Youtube with instructions, that are for free 🙂
Have you tried to knit with a loom?
