A colleague of mine had a baby girl, and since I knit his son a pair of socks, I had to knit the girl a pair, too. These are knitted in Wollmeise Twin 80/20, the colourway is Maria's deepest purple. Needles 2.5 mm, US 1 1/2. I'm sorry for the crappy picture, it was taken with my cell phone, I had to hurry so he could get them. I actually took them damp to work, and let them dry there before he got them. :)

From 2-25 September there was been a challenge called 2011 Podcaster challenge, or Plurk podcaster challenge. 26 podcasters were given different patterns to knit within these dates, and all patterns included the same technique, cables. The viewers/listeners were invited to join the podcasters and knit along with them, and the only pattern I wanted to knit, was Hermione's Cable & Eyelet Hat, the pattern given to Kate from the Noteable Needlework podcast. I knit mine in Cascade 220, colourway 2413, on needles 3.5 mm, US 4.

Camp Loopy 2011

So, Camp Loopy 2011 is officially over, and my skein of Wollmeise as a reward for completing, is on it's way from The Loopy Ewe.
As you may remember, for Project I I knit Daybreak.

Project II was to knit a pair of adult socks, mittens, or gloves, with cables included in the pattern. I chose to knit the Knotty gloves by Julia Muller. I used Madeline Tosh Sock, colourway Tart, on needles 2.5 mm, US 1 1/2. 

Project III came as a shock for most of us, I think, and I think many of us wondered if Sheri, the owner of The Loopy Ewe, and the one behind Camp Loopy, had gone crazy. The challenge was to knit up a project of 800 yards or more. For this project I chose to knit the Red rings pullover by Tonia Barry. I used Madeline Tosh Vintage, colourway Lapis, on needles 4.0 mm, US 6. 

Both projects have been used several times already, the gloves only on my short bike ride to work, but the sweater has been worn a few days already, and I love it! The yarn is so soft and is not itchy at all, even though it's 100% merino. I can wear it with a t-shirt under, with no problems. It will definitely be a favourite. :)

Endringer på bloggen / Changes to the blog

Jeg har bestemt meg for å begynne å blogge kun på engelsk inntil videre, kanskje det vil få meg til å oppdatere bloggen oftere. For dere som fortsatt vil lese meg på engelsk, til høyre under "Om meg", er det mulighet til å velge språk, og oversette til norsk ved hjelp av Google Translate.
I have decided to write my blogposts in English only until further notice, hopefully I'll get around to updating my blog more often. For those of you that wish to read my posts in an other language, under the "About me" section, there is a possibilty to choose language, by the Google Website Translator Widget.
