My absolutely worst ever project...

...I call this cardigan. Of course I shouldn’t have thought that this will look on me as good as on the person at drops homepage. But somehow I realized that too late. And now it is just taking space in my wardrobe. As excuse I can use the fact that yarn was on sell before I planned to make the cardigan. Both yarns Highlander and Vienna from Garnstudio drops are difficult to unravel.

Hmm, just came on my mind, my kids will grow up someday; maybe they might want to use it, for carnival at least? :D

Crocheted jersey in blue

Long time ago when we were in Uruguay I found there several old Spanish crocheting magazines Prendas a ganchillo in the bookstore. Those which I bought contained some really nice patterns. This jersey is made of such. Yarn I bought back in Sweden and it is cotton from *Schachenmayr nomotta* Crochet hook 3 and 3.5 cm.

Fabel mittens for me and child

These two pairs I also made a couple of years ago. For both of them I used double stranded Fabel yarn, as experience said to me that with just one my finger will freeze. Now my child has grown out of hers but I am still wearing my pair.

3742 g of pleasure or craft fare, autumn 2010

Well, I have been hibernating for this virtual blog world for too long time now. But now back to business!

Recent events first: November 5, Stockholms syfestivalen, autumn 2010. Me and my dear friend Ivana (ravelry link) took approximately 5 hours of our dear time to visit fair boots and shop the yarn. And we had a lot of fun!

Pics with yarn are made by her.

Do I really need more yarn? Ask my boyfriend and he will say definitely not. ;) Thought this is the question were our opinions split.

So I came to home carrying 3742 g with yarn for Joakims sweater, ruffle scarves, felting, rainbow, socks and something else...time will decide what.
