P.S. I love knitting - postaukset
Gardengate vol. 2
Two years ago I knit my first Gardengate sweater by Jennifer Steingass. The colorwork motif caught my eye a long time ago already and I still love it to this date. Although the world is full of absolutely gorgeous...
My favorite yarn shop is nurja, which is located in Tampere, and the owners of nurja also hand-dye yarn. As already shown in my Tokeurau shawl, nurja merino sock in the shade Ruusukvartsi is a beautiful old rose with...
After quite some break in sock knitting, I have finished a pair of socks! I originally saw the pattern translated into Finnish in a pamphlet where the name was translated into Ruusuraitasukat. The original pattern is...
Usually, Novita magazine contains 1-2 patterns that interest me, but the Summer 2021 issue was full of ideas and patterns that caught my eye. The first one I cast on is a leaf-patterned shirt called Mehikasvi. I have...
While buying yarn is admittedly quite lovely, being able to use my existing stash makes me even happier. When I bought Gjestal Merino BabyUll for my Hattara sweater, I bought enough to match the pattern instructions...
New socks! It's been a while since I have knit socks but recently I finished one pair of Soulmates socks by Niina Laitinen. I actually already started to knit these ones last summer, but they were on hold for about half...
One of my goals for 2020 was to learn to knit brioche and I had in fact purchased the Hattara paita pattern and yarns for it already in the summer of 2020. However, it was the first days of 2021 when I finally decided...
I had some leftover Novita Baby merino yarn and I wanted to use it up by making a cardigan. I have had my eye on the Populuxe pattern by Andi Satterlund for a few years, because it has a seamless construction with short...
I learned stranded knitting last year and ever since, I have wanted to make a colorwork sweater. After a long time of thinking about it, I decided to make Gardengate by Jennifer Steingass. I made several swatches with...
I have presented several shawls in this blog. However, all of my previous shawls are intended to be worn on my shoulders instead of my neck as a scarf. For a rather long time, I had a sketch of a scarf in my head...
In the summer, I made a variegated pink Poutapäivä sweater using Novita Cotton soft yarn. That sweater turned out one of my most worn pieces of the summer and I wanted to make another one without the variegation in the...
The most exciting moment in visiting the yarn shelves in grocery shops in Finland is finding new colorways in Novita yarns. Quite often though, I don't end up buying anything, but recently I made an exception to this...
As a summer treat, a local yarn shop, Nurja in Tampere, hand dyed special sparkly yarns. I love anything that has a bit of bling in it, so naturally I had to get two skeins of the sparkly beauties in colorway...
My next summer knit project is again from Novita Summer extra 2020 magazine. The pattern is now available online for free though! You can find it here. This was such a quick and fun knit. I made minor changes to the...
The past days here in Finland have been super hot! Temperature has been around 30 and full sunshine from sunrise to sunset! With the weather being so warm and lovely, I have used lots of plant fiber yarns lately. At...
My favorite shawl shape is half-circle. Previously, I have made two half-circle shawl, a blue one and a black one. From experience I know that a big half-circle shawl requires two skeins of fingering weight yarn. I love...
Apple blossom sweater
I have some leftover Filcolana Arwetta yarn from the No frills cardigan, that I was originally planning to make with double-held yarn. In the Novita Spring 2019 magazine, the lace top of...
Hat matching the Chihuahua mittens
Since I had plenty of yarn left from the chihuahua mittens, I wanted to use them to make a matching hat for the mittens. I didn't want to include the...
My sister has a chihuahua so what would be more fitting to her as a birthday gift than Chihuahua mittens by Lumi Karmitsa. I wanted to make sure the color of the dog would match her real dog, so I went to my local yarn...
Wannabe Flax light
In the movie, Devil wears Prada, there is an outfit with a black sweater worn over a white blouse. Inspired by this outfit, I knit a short black sweater. On a nearly daily basis I wear high waisted midi skirts, so I...
Set for a spring baby
For as long as I have knitted, I have always wanted to knit baby clothes. As I don't have children of my own, I haven't so far had a chance to knit anything for children. However, now one...
September socks in December?
These socks are the last finished object of 2019. I cast on these September socks by Niina Laitinen already in August, but they were hibernating for several months. Finally on the 30th of...
Lace shawl for my sister
The final Christmas I finished was the lace shawl for my sister. I used the same yarn as in the shawl for my mother, but I used a different pattern. I found the pattern from Kotivinkki...
This year I wanted to make my family knitted gifts. For my father I decided to make the Pohjanmaa socks. I had some leftover Filcolana Arwetta Classic in grey and chose mint green as the contrasting color. Even though...
No frills cardigan in the office style
Last winter, I rather unplanned bought a burgundy cardigan. Though unplanned, this purchase ended up being one of the most worn pieces of my...
I have to admit that even though I live in a relatively cold country, I haven't worn a hat in the winter for years. The reason is simply that I have never come accross a hat I would like. However, recently I visited my...
The first Christmas gift for this year is now finished! My mom always admires my knitted lace shawls and scarfs, so I made her one using the free pattern Morrígan by Hedgehog fibers. This pattern is so lovely! It was...
My first ever colorwork!
For a really long time, I have been wanting to learn to do stranded colorwork, but for some reason I have been very scared to try it. However, a few weeks ago I decided to conquer...
The perfect double hat
Recently, I realized that my father would really need a new hat. I searched and searched through Ravelry without any luck to find a fully doubled brimmed hat made of thin yarn. Since the...
Spring bride socks / Kevätmorsian sukat
Last spring, I saw a picture of the most beautiful lace socks on Novitaknits' Facebook page. I absolutely love to knit socks, and I have made...
