I'm stalling - I would be so sad if this dosen't turn out great, as I think/hope it will.
In the meantime I'm using the leftover yarn to knit a smaller purse.

I tried back-stitches, look at the left side, not to impressive, I know.
And then I did something else on the right side, much better. And then I had to take apart the left side emroidery and do it all over again. And this is just one side of the tote....
Did I tell you that I hate all work with a sewing needle? If I didn't - I'll tell you now - I really do. And still, this was fun for me, I don't know why. Better pic tomorrow.

My Celtic tote is almost done, knitwise. I think I need pockets inside, but first I have to embroider. Sewing is not my strong side, but I hope it will look good in the end.
Yarn: Hifa tykt vevgarn
I've had this yarn for several years. I've been looking at it and thinking "why did I buy this, I'm never going to use it...", and I'm so excited that I found a project for it. But:
I think/hope this yarn will felt all right, I'm not really sure. What a bummer if it dosen't.
Sloched Tuva Hat again:
The third and fourth Slochy hat is finished.
This time I altered the pattern by casting on 80 sts for the rib, 90 sts for the hat, and making it a little bit bigger before the shaping.
On to sewing.

This is also socks for the Norwegian KAL "Sokker 2008". I have knitted theese before, and they are very nice socks, with a good pattern.
Pattern: Blueberry Waffle Socks
Yarn: 80 gram Smart
Circs: 4 mm
I choosed to knit them toe-up, Magic cast-on. 36 sts. Magic loop.
Have a nice weekend!
Ekstraoppgaven i Sokker 2008 var Vaffel-sokkene. Disse har jeg strikket tidligere, og sokkene blir veldig gode, så det var ikke noen jobb å strikke dem igjen. Denne gangen valgte jeg å strikke dem fra tåen og opp, jeg synes det er en fin måte å få passelig store sokker på. Vanligvis blir alle sokker alt for store for meg, så jeg ender opp med å måtte skrive om de fleste oppskrifter jeg prøver meg på.
Takk for at du titter innom, og ha en fin helg!

The link to my (old) blog for 2007 is HERE.
I have used about 16 kg yarn this last year. Wow.
Hvis man for moro skyld skal regne litt på garnmengden min:
43 kg = 860 nøster (balls)
29 kg = 580 nøster (balls)
Brukt i 2007 = 280 nøster fra lager + 40 nøster handlet i løpet av året = 320 nøster
Hvis jeg fortsetter på denne måten er det snart tomt for garn her - hehe - neppe....

One hat is done and one is almost done and I have started on a sock.
I have pics of the hat (comming in next post), I have joined several KALs and I have organized my stash.... (to self: you could actually blog about this....).
