More new FO's :D
This is a most wonderfull FO. Done with this pattern it's a little mat for my teamug. Now my laptop is that much safer and I have noticed a decline in the 'I just spiled tea ALL OVER the keyboard'-crisises that used to be way to common around here. ;)
Ah. My lufferly bag. I used up all my fingering weight alpaca (tripel stranded) and a less than complete skein of bulky brown wool and a metalic/blue/white funfur type yarn. I made some flowers for decoration and an icord handle in black wool that I felted. The lining I sewed by hand. I also added a magnetic closure to keep my stuff in the bag XD
Since I had made a cellphone cozy (see last post) I decided that my mp3player really needed one too. And considering the 'luck' I've had with music playing technology it'll need it. Double stranded with worsted weight black wool and a novelty yarn with acrylic /mohair /cotton /metallic. It's very cute and snug.
I must say I'm pleased with myself. This is a lovely tank/shell type thing, knitt in the round using a cute pastell novelty yarn my mum gave me for my birthday in march. I first tried to knitt the pattern that came with the yarn but it was messy and annoying and the sizes were odd. So I frogged and started over with the bad penny pattern from Knitty, I had the right gauge and it's a cute pattern. Now, the yarn isn't very soft, in fact it's rather scratcy, but that is okay since the top is so see-through that you need to wear something under it anayway. :) And it fits! It really does. Making garments that fits and look good is one of the bets things about knitting!
