And a large thanks to Sølvi that suggested to use the rust fabric for binding. I`m very satisfied with the result. Tomorrow I`ll wash away the blue quiltinglines. I`m a bit worried though that the rust fabric in the middle will bleed, when I gave the binding a wash it did.
Var på strikkekafe på kafe Filter i Ila i går, det var en spennende afære... vi skulle lære å strikke sokker fra tuppen og opp! Ja! bare for å ha avklart det....JEG FÅR DET IKKE TIL... ja sånn, nå e det sagt... åhh det gjorde godt!
Det hele er egentlig en enkel sak, det er bare jeg som knoter... ha ha ha
Først lager du luftmaskebue på ca 45lm i en kontrast tråd.
Tar sokkegarnet og plukker opp 36m i "humpen" bak på buen.
Du strikker vrangt tilbake.
Så skal du sette igjen 1maske i begynnelsen på pinnen samtidig som du lager et kast og strikker.
Det er viktig at det blir både en vanlig maske og et kast igjen for hver runde.
Når du har 12 masker igjen midt på pinnen skal du begynne å ta opp igjen maskene!
Det er her jeg gjør feil! Jeg skjønner prinsippet, men klarer ikke å felle sammen
masker og kast riktig og får det klumpete i "sidesømmene" .......
Så da jeg kom hjem i går kveld strikket jeg ny tå ifra nytt nøste. Så rekket opp den jeg begynte på kafeen og strikket den omigjen. Nå er jeg kommet like langt på begge.... og til kvelden skal jeg atter en gang prøve...
Jeg har funnet en engelsk strikkeoppskrift fra tåa opp og har virkelig lyst å prøve den. Så jeg har ingen planer om å gi meg så fort. Jeg er ganske sikker på at det bare er en dum liten vri jeg gjør som blir så feil.
Prøving gjør mester...... jada, men fy så kjedelig å rekke opp!
Nå skal jeg gjøre noe jeg får til....... ha ha ha
I attended a knit-cafe yesterday evening. We where going to knit socks from the toe up! Never tried this before and I`m giving it my best go, but I`m doing something wrong. So when I got home I started again on the other sock and when I came to the part where I do not do it right I re-knitted the first one. Later when the kids are gone to bed I`ll try again. I have found some beautiful socks on a blog I would like to try to knit (from the toe up), so I`m really going to get i right..... really....
I spent most of my in-between moments working on this today. With two sick kids, bored half to death! fighting over nothing.... It was nice to snick down into my sewing room to piece together these. I did the ironing and cutting upstairs.... and finally their done. Now I can enjoy Olympics sewing buttonhole stitches in delicious colors.
This year there has been several "new beginnings", one off them is that I`ve manged to subscribe the magazine Homespun! When Leanne and Gail where here in September 2009 they told us about their contribution to the care quilt: Life is a celebration (see button on sidebar). I decided then to subscribe and to sew the quilt, using fabrics from my stash.... Well, almost..... I had to! by 2 meters of white tone-on-tone spot print fabric (not totally the same), it`s for block background and borders, I wanted to use only one fabric in stead of several craps... I`m also using the same dmc as the designers, but my fabrics are a bit toned down, more earthly.... I don`t have a lot off sparkly candy pink and blue... but I think it`s going to look good with the fabrics I have chosen.
Yesterday evening I spent washing and ironing my fabrics, there were no bleeding, they all came out great.
I have joined ravelympics 2010. I`m going to challenge myself to knit the lace beret that got too small.... This is a good thing, I cannot get the beret out of my head, it really bothered me that it did not fit. I have called it "White dream", using the yarn Sterk and needles 3mm, starting today.
The magazine is still: Designer Knitting, holiday issue 2009.
I`m still handquilting.... Not much left now, my notebook is filled with yellow post-it-notes for what I`m up to when I`m done..... but first finish quilting, then sew on the binding. Handstitching in the back will be in front of tv-work.......
I`ve just got home from the machine quilting class, and YES it was fun, fun, fun! I did not get to sew as much I`d planned, but I defiantly got pointed in the right direction.... Lovely ladies, some familiar, some new and Berit was great. I believe I know what to do in the weekend.......
You see, I`m wearing my nametag....ha ha ha
This is some of the patterns I sewed. Berit brought several quilts for us to look at, and this pattern where one of them. I had to try.
I also got some shopping done... Yes!, Quiltegården is one of the most beautiful quiltshops I know, and it is very easy to "lose" yourself in there..... But I did bring a post-it-note telling me what I needed, and I almost stuck to it.... just bought two extras...... I will post them in a while, showing you something new I`m going to make, it`s a bom I think, from Homespun magazine..... I`m excited and can almost not wait, having a discussion with my self ether to wash the fabrics first or not, but I think I will, just in case any color-bleeding....
I`m taking my Janome for a spin! Out in the snow, downtown, to visit Siw at Quiltegården, it`s tomorrow!
I`m attending a machine quilting class with Berit. I have attended several classes like this before, but still I`m struggling! So to get my but in gear I`m attending a new one. I have a pile on my sewing desk to machine quilt, it is about time... they have been waiting over a year, some even more.....
I`m bringing lots of tests cloths or sandwiches (fabric+wadding+fabric). Last time I brought my cousin and we made bags and purse of the clots afterwords. I`m very pleased with that, and I`m thinking about doing something like that again....
These are waiting for a rainy day, leftovers from last time...
The big piece are going to be a bag and the small one, a purse.
I made this from the test cloth last time. Both bag and purse.
I sewed the bottom like Anne Pia Godske Rasmussen showed us (Danish designer).
And a small one for bits and bobs! Belive or not! It`s not done yet....
I`m adding this one to opam...
I have a lot of plans summing in my head, but I know one thing I`m going to be prepared and I`m going to sew, sew, sew......
