Strikka småting / Small knits

Fingerless mitts

Erlend har lenge ønska seg fingerløse votter, men jeg har liksom ikke funnet noe mønster jeg har likt. Men i boka Knitting new mittens and gloves av Robin Melanson fant jeg dette mønsteret. Enkelt og raskt å strikke, og gutten er fornøyd :) Jentene har allerede funnet garn til sine, så jeg må legge opp til neste par senere i kveld. Er fint å høre at ungene faktisk har lyst til at jeg skal strikke noe til dem. Disse er også mitt første bidrag til project spetrums element jord. Hvor fargene er grønn, brun og metallic.

Mønster: Evening light fra Knitting new mittens and gloves
Garn: 50 g Smart
Pinner: 3 mm

Erlend has for a long time wanted a pair of fingerless mitts, but I haven't found a pattern that I've liked. But in the book Knitting new mittens and gloves by Robun Melanson I found this pattern. Easy and quick to knit, and the boy is happy :) The girls has already picked their color, so I have to cast on for a new pair tonight. It's great when the kids actually ask me to knit something for them. These is my first conrtibution to project spectrums element earth. Where the colors is green, brown and metallic.

Left over socks

Og minstemann har fått seg nye ullsokker. De er strikka i rester av finull og pt2.

And the youngest has got a new pair of wool socks. They are knitted from left overs of finull and pt2.

  1. Yay! I'm your first comment today. We've passed the weather for gloves, but I always love looking at "winter" things. I really like the fingerless gloves. Are they knit sideways. They look like they might be.

  3. Næmmen for en skjønn hund i forrige innlegg. Mannen min går og maser om en - kanskje han hadde slått seg til ro med et sånt eksemplar?
    Ellers knallfine ting du strikker. Og takk for oppskrift på play-doh. I vårt hus er det forbruksvare og nå skal mor jammen jeg lage det selv :)

  4. Hi! Glad you stopped by, I check in with your blog from time to time. I sometimes get tingly fingers too if I knit too much. I find a good massage in my shoulders helps relieve a lot of that. I love the pictues of the kids with the Playdough, that a lot of dough! I am sure they had fun!

    I really love the photo on Endre holding the blue dog:) I want to squeeze those cheeks!

  8. Hey! Lovely gloves. The sock are fabulous. I think Will and Endre are the same age (Will is 3) and Lisa Anne is right, those cheeks are really squeezeable! I squish Will's all the time.

  9. I really like that mitt pattern. It is so easy and fast to make up. For a "girly" look I add a fluffy, fuzzy cuff using "Fun fur" by Lion Brand yarn or some other acrylic furry yarn. My daughter loves them this way and has three pair.
