Four & Five

The second Lacy Baktus was easy to finish on the train to/from Hesinki last weekend - it makes finish number 4!

Number 5 feels a little like cheating - it was so quick to make! I love the Morning Snack Scarf pattern. This was made with Noro Kogorashi that I bought in Helsinki when I was there, and I think I'll keep it for myself!

I've been meaning to post this link for a while - I found it via someone's Twitter feed, I think, but it's been a while now! Hope it makes you smile!

Triangles in a row

My second scarf was quickly finished with 5.5 mm needles and three skeins of Novita Puro. The pattern was quite addictive, you make a triange starting from the bottom, decrease in every row until you have one stitch left, then pick up stitches from one side of the triangle and do another one. The pattern is from Novita Talvi 2010. The yarn isn't one of my favourites, it has too many knots and the yarn got really thin at some points.

Lots to Share!

I've been busy! I've finished scarves/shawls number 2 and 3. The first is Multnomah in Schoppel-Wolle's Frische Fische yarn. The second is a Lacy Baktus with Novita's Nalle Kukkaketo (Päivänkakkara - to match my tulips!).

I loved the Lacy Baktus so much that I had to start another one right away. This time with Novita 7 Veljestä Raita. I'm looking forward to knitting on the train this weekend!

Baktus done!

Finished Baktus two nights ago. It was nice to knit! Did not turn out to be perfectly symmetrical, it was a bit difficult to count the increases and decreades in this yarn!

Fisherman finished!

So happy to have finished the scarf I started first!

Starting with Grey Lace

I finally finished my first scarf, had started it a while ago, but other projects took my time. The lace pattern was really easy to remember, could be a good first lace project. The pattern is from Novita spring 2010, yarn is Novita Rose Mohair and the needles are 5 mm. It took 130 g of yarn to make this scarf. I've started my second scarf as well, and the pattern is really addictive, but again other projects seem to take my time at the moment...

Good at Starting, Not So Good at Finishing

I'm still working on the fan shawl and the green and orange scarf, but I had to start something new this week, too. I love the Zauberball from Schoppel-Wolle. I made socks from a blue ball a couple years ago and decided to finally break into the rainbow-colored one (called frische Fische) that I bought at the same time. The pattern is Multnomah (more details on Ravelry). I have no idea how large (or small) this is going to be - might be more of a shawlette, but in either case, I think I know who I'm going to give it to.

My first Baktus scarf!

Had to start a new one before finishing the fisherman... This I´m already in love with, the yarn (a present from a friend) plays a big part in my falling in love with this pattern after two centimeters.
