It was rather interesting to count how much yarn I've consumed this year. The number is 5850 g! I'm very proud of myself :) I wonder if I can make it to 6 kg's before 31.12...

Christmas... coming fast, but this time: I'm on time! Socks for Mom, a hat for Granny and a scarf for my brother-in-law are ready, and mittens for sister M and socks for Dad and sister S are on needles. Jussi's felted mittens only need to be... felted. Yippee! I'm actually enjoying this. Normally I'm really stressed :D

Here's a couple of photos of them. :) I haven't got a photo of my Dad's sock, but, well... They're just basic socks, really. :) I've made two kettleholders too, for my friend. :)

FO: Palmikkosukat

I've finally finished something. I'm having a LITTLE hurry with my Xmas presents...

Pattern: Palmikkosukat by Novita (@Ravelry)
Needles: 3½ mm
Yarn: Novita 7 Veljestä
Consumption: 120 g

I've bought yarn, by the way. Novita Puro was only 2,70€/skein, so I bought. 6 of them. And, I found this nice brown yarn from Lidl (don't know if it's really good, but it was cheap) and I bought it too. 4 skeins 6,99€. That makes a total of 10 skeins à 50 g = 500 g.

And! Today my husband and I are going to Tampereen Kädentaitomessut (handicraft fair), yippee! I hope I won't buy too much yarn... I simply don't seem to have enough time to consume it! And Xmas... I have to knit to OTHERS before I can start to knit to myself again. Phew. It's hard to be a knitter... :D
