Pink odessas

I had this cotton yarn in my stash that was going to be washcloths, but then I dicovered that it was this beautiful and soft maco cotton and I had to make something else. I love the Odessa pattern so here are three more Odessas:

Pink odessas

Pattern available as free Ravelry download.
Yarn: Pandora maco cotton (Rauma), 70g
Needles: 2.5mm, 3mm, 3.5mm

I added a little fun to the smallest hat:

Podcast listening

Do you listen to podcasts? I listen to a lot of podcasts about knitting and crocheting. One of my absolute favourites is the Yarn Thing podcast hosted by Marly.

The first time I blogged about the Yarn Thing podcast was in the beginning of Mai 2007 (back then I only blogged in Norwegian), so I have been listening almost from the start and we have become good friends on the web. :)

She has a 1 year anniversary right now. Congrats Marly!
I hope you'll continue podcasting for a long time.

Easy scarf and CPH progress

My easy scarf is done:

Easy scarf

It's really soft and nice.

Needles: 5 mm/US 8
Size: 12 x 130 cm (5 x 50 inches)

Progress cph - h

There isn't going to be a hoodie on my Central Park Hoodie. I think I'll use this cardigan even more without the hoodie. The progress is good, but I'm still making a lot of other things in between the seaming.


I really don't like to seam, but I'm quite happy with what I did along the sides:


Now the harder part, seaming in the arms...

Happy knitting!
