For this one I used a shetlandic wool/alpacka/silk yarn and then some Rowan felted tweed, some cherry flavored koolaid colored yarn for the picots and some pink mohair for the lower edge. The threads need to be wowen in so there are no hole in the pink edge.

I didn´t take a lot of pics but these two outfits cought my eye as I likes both the clothes and the color.
We found the new yarnstore called Bette Design. If you are at Ströget turn left at Indiska if you are walking from the station and it´s on the left side. She has knitting cafées too...
Summerfuglen where as nice as ever.
The beer was good too!

Turn your head and look at the necklace made with cotton yarn and pearls. If I had a Christmas tree I would make garlands this way!

I will not go naked and I will not be out of fabric and yarn.
A friend of mine challenged herself to a "five a day" clean the appartment. She got rid of five things a day ( goodwill, garbage, me ....)
My favourite band is going to release a new album in 11 days and I´m going to buy it becourse when I threw my TV out two years ago I said I would buy one CD/ month and I haven´t done that.
Her birthdayparty is tomorrow, and I known this for a while so why do I have to do this in the last minute?

and close up on the hem line with the chain:
I used an article in Treads about simplying the construction and it worked fine, but at the end I omitted putting bias tape around the armcycle and just used zig zag. The arma have facings in the quilted burgundy fabric, used the lower pattern part that could be done in a contrasting fabric.
I like this jacket a lot!

and the beautiful back
Looks much better wearing something nicer than these yogapants. The jacket now belongs to my mother who had her birthday last week This is a closeup on my Ballerina in a rusty red, orange and brown. Need to sew the seams under the arm that are the only seams on this jacket! Very clever design! and fun to knit!
Button still has to be replaced.
Spede update 27 cm ( armlevel)

She sells it through her internetstore and here she is herself packing We convinced her to came back before she´s going back so we can buy her yarn so she wouldn´t have to bring it back with her.
Are we "up over" for the aussies????

I bought more than I intended to do!
I started my spede sweater in a teal yarn I´ve knitted 6 cm and my plan is to do 5 cm/ week and then the body will be finished by the first weekend i february when there will be a spede class on how to do the embellishment
This a detail, the needles are 1,5 mm
I also bought this variagated yarn for a scarf with holes in it that I will felt, not started yet
I saw a scarf in the shop knitted in Drops Fabel, 20 stitches, the hole ball, two knots ine each end. Have done half the scarf now.
Works in any selfstriped sock yarn. I saw that Kaffe Fasset had done colors for Regia. I think a scarf is a much better place to show off nice yarn than on the foot inside a shoe or a boot
sewed a seam to make it a little bit less showing
Then I cut a neckline
added some fabric, will add some more becourse it´s showing too much
to be continued...

Here´s a closeup with the green cordroi that I will turn into a jacket one day or another

The coat is not lined and I´m thinking of shortening it into a jacket and sew a belt from the extra fabric. Anyway it´snot warm enought to wear now.
Then I found this jacket for 45 crowns. I need a jacket to wear to the gym. I took my old jacket to wear at the stable so this one will work fine. I have to sew in new buttons for the pockets. It´seasy cared for just washer and dryer.
When I found these, hardly used. It´s Vagabond I´m not sure how international that brand is. Nice and wide, 27 crowns
When I went to Myrorna ( salvation army ) Their prices are much higher but I found these shoes for 100 crowns. It´s Sköna Marie, a brand I have many shoes from, They are usually very boring and you can see at once that they are SM. But these where different, 100 crowns, need to buy a sole for them.
I think they will look good with pants as well as skirts.
And a woman can´t have too many shoes and I threw some that where outworn some weeks ago!

I also need to move a button to where it used to be and resew the buttonholes. Then I have a nice warm winter coat. Looks great with my boots but I might want to make a scarf or buy one for it.
