NO money left for many, many years to come.

Love this soft, soft sockyarn.

Finished Dress

So - here it is:

Winter dress

I'm kind of happy with myself: 6 days knitting - and then finished. :)

But I'm not too happy with the result. It's a little bit short to be a dress. The cut is not at all like the cut in the pic from Sandnes. The waist is not slim and long as in the Sandnes pic. It's a bit big for me in the waist, and the back seems a bit baggy. I used more yarn than the pattern calls for.

Winter dress

Pattern: SandnesGarn Tema 17 fritdsgarn, kjole
Yarn: Fritidsgarn, 600 g
Needles: 6 mm
Size: M

On the pluss side (for me): The dress (or what to call it) is very warm, I'll have to try to wear it tomorrow.


Thanks for visiting and commenting. :)
