Off the needles today I got this pink scarf, made for Sara. I am pretty sure that her parents do not read my blog, and she is way too young to understand what I am writting here, so I think it is fine that I post her Christmas gifts here.
The pattern is free, from Drops Design: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/no/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=b14&d_id=16&lang=no. I made I little change at the end. The pattern calls for plain decreasing when you knit till the satisfying length. I want the scarf to be symmetrical, and looks like two "hearts" overlapping each other when the scarf is taken on, so I simply follow the same way in knitting the first "heart". I put every other stitch onto a cable needle, and knit the remaining till ca. 5 cm, then I knit the same length of the picked out stitches. Then I combine the two sets of stitches together, picking one stitch from each needle in turns at a time. When I have all stitches on one needle, I decreased, instead knitting increasingly, till there are 4 stitches left. I then cast off.
I am now going to knit the tusen hjertelige hat for her, the one I blogged in the last post. Ove just selected the colors.

It is September, so fall is officially coming. The weather is actually quite good today. No rain! Yeah!
We went to the small forest nearby. It is actually just behind H's kindergarten. Every Monday is "out-going" day. They usually go into the forest.
Anyway, we were there in the forest, picking up lots of treasure. We had wild mushroom for dinner, and the boy and I made this.

I participated this year's Ravellenic Games, knitting a selv-challenging project as the Olympic Games went on. See, this is what I complished: An overall for H. I think it will suit him perfectly for fall/early winter, especially he naps outside and does not like to take quilt or blanket on.
The pattern is from Sandnes Tema 30 Klassikere 0-4. Sized for two year-old. Sandnes garn Sisu.
Jeg deltok Ravellenic Games i år. Det vil si at man strikker et utfordrende prosjekt i løpet av OL. Poenget er at man skal være fokusert og utfordre seg til å bli bedre, akkurat som OL. Jeg deltok også i 2008, men klarte ikke å gjennomføre mitt prosjekt. Men, denne gangen klarte jeg. Ser: en dress strikket i Sisu for min godgutt i Marius-mønster. Jeg er kjempe stolt. Og jeg faktisk for en gangs skyld gleder meg til høst, slik gutten kan bruke det :=)

Vel, livet er fortsatt som vanlig, ingen ting spesielt har skjedd. Eller kanskje ikke? Akkurat nå føler jeg både utrolig sliten og veldig stolt. I går var den første natten jeg alene tok ansvar av lille gutten siden han var født.
