I've finished the first Mystery Sock:

Oh no

My ClusterMap! There's like 30 clursters there, there's something wrong! I don't like this...

I've been knitting, as usual. A vest for my husband will soon be finished. I'm also knitting a "pappatakki" for myself. Red Novita Isoveli and 6 mm needles = fast.

I bought only 3 skeins! So no panic.

teetee Pallas: I'm making a pair of socks for my Mom :)

Renia Hand-dye Effect: This clearly wants to become a scarf.

WIPs and a vacation

Phew. We have now our fall vacation, and I now have one week to rest... (=knit)

This one's a project that I started in summer, for Jussi. Yesterday I started to knit it again, let's see if I can finish it before I go to my parents' in Thursday...

SPOILER ALERT for TTL Mystery Sock '09 knitters...

I've also finished the clues 2 and 3:

But guess what irritates me, a lot. Remember the April Shrug I knitted, the green one? It was my own pattern, I found the lace pattern from a pattern book from the early 80's. And tadah, in Novita's newest issue there's almost exactly the same lace pattern. Sigh.

Sad news

Our doggy, Retu, had to be put away yesterday. I really miss him... He was our first dog, and he lived with us for 9 years. Retu was 10 years old already, but it still hurts.

♥ Retu



I'm now sewing a coat. Let's see if I can finish it for tomorrow...

FO: Feather and Fan Scarf

Wow, that was fast! I now have about 150 cm's of soft 65% mohair warming my neck. Guess what it is?

WIP: Feather and Fan Scarf

Yesterday I knitted about 40-50 cm of this scarf, Feather and Fan Scarf (@ravelry). No photo, sorry, but I must say this. The scarf has been a wip for ages (as many of my projects usually are). "Well, I can aswell try to knit this while I read." And tadah! In no time the lenght of it doubled. Wow.

I think that I'll finish it soon. Hopefully. :)

Knitty-lovers, you may want to check this out: Clic! Yummy. :)

I almost finished the Saltkråkan-socks yesterday, but my wrist didn't agree with me. I now have to have one day without knitting (ouch) so that my left wrist gets better. Some might say that I've knitted too much. How come?

FO: Army socks (or FDFIOS)

Yesterday I knitted like a maniac, but it was worth it. I made 1,5 socks in one day (the first half was done ages a go, and this project was hibernating). But now, as the days get colder and colder, I had to finish these. I don't want my husband's toes to freeze :P
