Leaving Cowl

wpid-wp-1442755878849I 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.

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.

Knitting with a loom

Desktop15If 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?

Things we have knitted

Suss_3Who doesn’t like a finished project? I guess we all do, that feeling when you make the last stitch or when you just have weaved in the last end.. And speaking of finished projects, here are some things that Susanne and Sofie  have made.

If you haven’t discoverd Ravelry yet, check it out because there are loads, and loads of inspiration on the site. Hell bent on knitting are also on Ravelry, and you can find the group here. What will be your next project?

Easy as pie

DSC_0672I wanted to knit a simple shawl and found this pattern (Easy as Pie by Marisa Fernandez) on Ravelry. But to knit you also need yarn, right? So I went to Copenhagen to buy some and I got really good advice on yarn shops from people in our knitting group.  Sommerfugeln (or the summer butterfly) is a garnshop not far from Ströget, maybe a 15 minutes walk from the central station AND  they have a lot of things you want in that shop. Believe me or not, but I have only two ongoing projects right now so I can focus on finishing this shawl 🙂
