Totesin eilen olevani tosi siisti tytsy.. Olin illalla pitämässä infopöytää punk/hc-keikalla, ja siinä samassa sekä kirjoin että neuloin. Siellä keikalla soitti muutaman muun lisäks Another Sinking Ship, mahtavaa!
I've decided to learn a new skill: embroidery. Actually I decided that last summer, but somehow the summer just ended before I even realized it. So last nigt I just took some black cotton fabric put it in the frame-thingy and began to work with the help of this. Now I need to figure out what to do with the cherry-thingy.
I did notice last night that I am a pretty cool girl.. I was holding an info table at a punk/hc-concert. And while doing that I was also doing embroidery and knitting. Along with a few other bands Another Sinking Ship played there. Love it!

Lapasten neulomiseen meni kaksi päivää. En katkaissut lankaa raitojen välissä, ja värin vaihtumiskohtaan jäikin tuollainen viiru jonka jätin kämmenen puolelle.
Tarkoituksena on myös neuloa lapasille kaveriksi raidallinen pipo sekä sukat.
I'm getting ready for the weather to get colder. I made these stripey mittens with that really cheap Rasche Masche acrylic yarn I bought a little while back. I used 3,5mm needles to knit these.
It took me two days to knit these mittens. I carried the dark and the light yarn all the way through, so I could avoid all that weaving in. The color changes leaved a little ugly "path". But it's ok since it hidden nicely in the palm.
I'm also goin to knit a stripey hat and socks to go with the mittens.
Ja teinpä myös sukat samasta halpislangasta. Malli on Novitan syksy extrasta. Tein tosiaan lyhyemmät kuin ohjeessa sanottiin, koska miten hiivatissa ne olisvat voineet olla istuvat polvipituiset sukat, jos koko varren ajan pelataan samalla määrällä silmukoita? Mie myös vaihoin päittäin tuon pitsihommelin langankierrot ja kavennukset. Jotenkin vaan tuntu luonnottomalta neuloa langankierron jälkeen kaksi oikein yhteen, ja ennen langankiertoa tehdä yliveto kavennus..
And I also made socks with the same cheap yarn. The pattern is from the fall extra of the knitting magazine Novita. I just made them shorter than in the pattern. I had some issues with the pattern, but I only wrote abut them in finnish. If you can't read finnish you can't read the pattern either.

Miulla on jo isoja suunnitelmia langoille.

Remember the Blueberry Puke- socks? The Puke-socks series got a sequel today when these got knit. Though it's still not clear what puked these up. I used the same yarn as in the Blueberry socks, except naturally not the same colour. They took me two days to knit. Not bad.

I did a little shopping today. I bought yarn, yarn, fleece and yarn. I bought some Novitas Marine and Bambu that were on sale. I also got this really cheep dark grey acrylic yarn that comes in a huge 300g (750 metres) skein. I have crystal clear plans for the Marine-yarn and the fleece. I also have ideas of what to do with the really cheep yarn. But what to do with the Bambu-yarn? It is 68% bamboo and 32% cotton. It has 135 metres per skein, and I have three skeins of it. I just had to buy it! You know the feeling.. It was cheep and so pretty. Not to mention that the three little brown skeins looked a little lonely at the store. If you have any suggestions what to do with them, please let me know!
