more wool,and some (nearly)finished objects...


This one's pretty cute, isn't he? We have about 30 ewes of the old norwegian sheep, the lambs are popping out, and some of them look like this
.



The jacket was made as a knitalong in Garnaflækja, an Icelandic knittinggroup I joined recently. We got only parts of the pattern each day, and knitted and tried to guess what it was.Great fun!And a nice pattern, I will use it again.
These socks are in progress. There will be a set of fingerless gloves to match. My 12 yearold picked the colours herself...I'm not happy with the heel at all, it is way too small. But I'm lazy, so I will not rip it out....



here are the socks and fingerless gloves I made for my 5year old niece,she got them in the mail today, and went to bed wearing her mitts...
So that's it for today. I have also joined Sockamania-normally I don't like knitting socks, but there are so many fun patterns out there in blogland, I just have to give it a try:-)
At some point, I will have to figure out how to link to stuff...but not today, it is way too late...

Marit - Loverly sheep!! I have wool envy. LOL. I wouldn't know what to do with raw wool if I had it but I can dream.

Lovely sweater. I saw a patten similar to that somewhere else on the internet.

Nice job.

Guess I need to take some pictures of my latest projects.
