Happy New Year!!

It's New Years eve and I really can't believe how fast 2009 has gone by. It's been a year filled with both good and bad things. I hope you all will have a new year filled with great experiences, great memories and lots of knitting :) I have been knitting a bit through December, but haven't had the energy to blog about it ;)


Erlend wears out his mittens fast, so I knitted him a new pair in mid December. Luckily he got two pairs of Selbumittens for Christmas too :) I have a grand mother who knits and Hubby's aunt always give the kids mittens or socks for Christmas :)
Pattern: Vante i gåsögonmönster from Vantar, mössor, sockor & sjalar
by Anita Gunnars.
Yarn: 100 g dark brown and 50 brown Trysil Garn Superwash Ullgarn.
Needles: 2,5 and 3,5 mm.


I needed two presents that I could knit up fast, so I made two pairs of fingerless mittens :)
Pattern: Strata from Knitting New Mittens & Gloves
by Robin Melanson.
Yarn: 50 g Trysil Garn Superwash Ullgarn & 50 g Mor Aase superwash.
Needles: 3,5 mm.


And I managed to knit up pair #21 in the 52ppiii along before the year was over. I am way behind and I'm not sure I'll manage to knit 31 pairs before May 31st.... There is so much else I want to knit ;)
Pattern: Just a simple k2, p2 pair of socks with a short row heel. 64 st.
Yarn: Lana Grossa Meilenweit 100 Colortweed #1011.
Needles: 2,5 mm.

And last, here is all the stuff I've knitted during 2009 :) I still have projects that are on the needles and I've froggd a few too ;)

  2. You were very busy, even with small kids! I wish you a very healthy, happy New Year!

  3. Happy New Year! I love reading your blog and seeing all the fun and beautiful projects you make. I live just north of Boston, but have been fortunate enough to visit Norway. Your home and children are lovely; all the best in 2010!

    Love the Christmas decor on your blog! All of your knitting projects are lovely, but my favorites are Endre's pants! Best wishes for a healthy and happy 2010 with lots of wonderful knitting projects.

  7. Look at all that knitwear! Holy Moly! What beautiful work you do!

    Happy New Year!

  8. Happy New Year !

  9. I love those mitts and all the projects you make.
    I have Knitting New Mittens & Gloves by Robin Melanson and find it to be the best hand wear book out there to date. I have made a few things from it but always wanted to make the Strata pattern.

  10. Så mye fint du har strikket! Morsomt å se alt samlet, man skjønner liksom ikke at man har produsert så mye når man ser det enkeltvis.
    Gleder meg til å se hva du lager i 2010 :)
