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.

Knitting the Hat

IMG_2539Yes, this is the hat with a capital H. And we’re going to knit one each. Or, it’s not a hat yet, but soon. I bought my yarn at Sländan in Lund. I have kind of a bad habit of always buying yarn in either grey, pink or blue. Guess no one noticed, does this count as purple? 😉IMG_2540This is the chart for the text. The pattern can be found on Ravelry and is free. If you for some reason don’t have a login on Ravelry and you like knitting. Get one 😉 You won’t regret it. hat-hat-4_medium2This is what it’ll look like when it’s finished. And then you can picture all of us wearing the same kind of hat, lol!

Do want to join the knit-along? Usually we meet somewhere in Malmö once a week to knit, chat and drink tea. If you want to come, just fill in the form on top of the page and you will receive more information.

Finished and in love!

bild1Wonderful design and super soft yarn! I am a bit worried though since it sort of stretched out a bit just wearing it for the photos. I don’t want it longer! I want it to stay exactly like this foreverrrrr!!!

bild3Since my gauge match the pattern I have used suggested needles: Needle Size: US 4 (3.5mm) straight or circular needles for the body. US 4 (3.5mm) and US 2½ (3mm) circular needles for the neckband and sleeves. Pattern: Boxy by Joji Locatelli

Regarding the yarn (mink!) I am a bit suspicious about how the minks are treated… Googling it they say that they use special gloves to comb out the hair and that it isn’t painful for the animals. Sounds good but I am still a bit suspicious…

Our yarn trip to Lund

Last Saturday we all went to Lund for a little yarn trip. There’s a yarn store called Sländan. And yes, they have lots, and lots of stuff you want to buy. Maybe not the fanciest yarn in the world, but a lot of things (good stuff) to a pretty good price.

And of course, we had fika. We went to a place which I actually can’t remember the name of but they had really good sour dough bread and lots of other tasty things. You wanted to try almost everything, it was that kind of café.

We also went to the flea market on Södra Esplanaden and Jesseca found this really cute mug for her husband. We love everything with cats on it, right?

Pictures from a Knit Night

Thought I could share some pictures from this week’s knit night.

I really like(d) the fur-yarn.. “it’s aaaalive” 😉

2014-11-04Thank 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”.

Finally time for knitting

IMG_7711It 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..

IMG_7710..Kinder eggs 😀 Desirée brought some Kinder eggs and I guess we all can admit that it was fun to open them. Thank you!

IMG_7718A very colorful pticture to end with, because color makes you happy, right? See you all soon!

Tuesday knit night

IMG_7394I brought my camera to tonight’s knit night because I wanted to take some pictures of all the things we knit. But now I realize that I took pictures of pretty much everything else. As an excuse, I think this shows that knit nights are not only about knitting, it’s so much more.. like hot chocolate, cake, really cute macarons, cats and really nice company.

Beware the wind

DSC_0400

I just wanted to share a funny story which might be something to think keep in mind if you like to knit outside. I was sitting on the balcony the other day knitting, when a gust of wind blew the yarn away.. 5 floors down into the garden. Next time I’ll put the skein in a bag or maybe watch it more carefully  😉 Do you have a funny story involving needles and yarn?
