Siv - Stick fest i Väst

Heidi Eva og jeg på vej mod Grötö til strikkefestival. Godt med et madpakke stop på vejen.

Det er utroligt så anderledes Sverige er i forhold til Danmark, her bare 40 min fra broen og der er allerede små bjerge.

Med færgen ud til øen uden biler - I LOVE IT!

Ankomst på Grötö, vejret er med os.

Jubiii garnpakke til os.

uhhh mange gode sager!

Kompendium med opskrifter, artikler og meget andet sjovt. Strikkepinde, garn og dims. 1000 tak SIV.

Der bliver gjort klar til garn lotteri - du forstår ikke hvor meget garn folk har....

Strik i sengen inden vi siger go'nat.

Det er hytten lige ved flagstangen vi bor i.


Klar parat GARN KØB

Hurtigstrik, blev naturligvis vundet af Heidi... Hep hep Danmark ;-)

Jeg er på kursus i Bohus strik, det er for vildt. Alt er strikket på p 1,5 og 2 mm i det fineste angoragarn, håndfarvet naturligvis.

På kurset, måtte vi købe denne lille garnpakke med en opskrift til pulsvarmere 120 kr. BILLIGT ikke.

På p 1,5 og 2 mm når man ikke langt, det her er mit strik - 6 timer efter jeg slog op...

Jeg kommer ikke til at strikke en bluse - så er det sagt! Jeg køber mig fra det, for jeg vil eje en, de er så smukke.

Vejret er så lækkert, tænk at det i foråret kan være SÅ godt.

Farvel Grötö vi ses næste år.

Lace has never been my choice of knitting, Now I think different of it.
I have been knitting this Estonian lace scarf, and im so happy with it... The pattern is free on knitting daily

The hard thing about this pattern is that you have to purl 7 st together, that is almost not to do. I used a crochet hook for those p7tog. I makes a nice booble effect

Before you start your knitting you have to make a chain of crochet, and knit you stitches un on that one, I knitted in the wron loop, so I got some trouble with it, when I had to get the stitches free for knitting the lace around the scarf.

So now im on to making a pattern for knitted yogi-pants my self.
