Juletre kurver på innpakningen?

Last minute wrapping..
Traditional Christmas tree hearts,
used in an nontraditional way..
These are very common on the Christmas tree in Norway.

Klippet disse i filt, og limte dem på gave poser... Kjappt og greit!

Christmas stocking...

I am blogging..
I shouldn't,
I really don't have time today!
What is it with me that I can't listen to myself,
and go do those other shores that are waiting for me..

Just one cup of coffee by the computer,
and I will be off, I think...

I finished this stocking last night,
embroidering it was fun,
the felting however, was a job!!
White yarn can have trouble being felted...
I knew that!
I will not forget again...

Jule strømpe for peisen..

Winter Mitten Purse

This is one of the things I have been working on lately.
I love this green color against the cream.
I used yarn from my stash,
PT3 and Fritidsgarn.

You can get the pattern for this purse
on Etsy
It could be cute for a little girl maybe..?

Har strikket denne fra garnrester.
Hadde en del av det grønne PT3 garnet,
elsker denne fargen.
Hadde det kjekt med de små vantene..

Christmas dinner anyone?

I am preparing for Christmas,
and this is our main course the 24 th.
(The neighbors are a little sceptic...)

Lamb ribs,

and hung to dry...
Will be soaked in water over night,
steamed over boiling water
until meat loosens from the bone.
Then into the oven on a real hot temperature
for a few minutes.
This give it a crisp outside, yum...

Delicious together with boiled potatoes,
and rutabaga stew.

Pinnekjøttet er nesten klart..

The Holidays are coming up..

In between other stuff,
I am making some purses.
These will be cute for Christmas,

It can be closed with a "button" on both sides.

The one below is a little bit larger.

I am off to line them in a moment.
Pattern might be available later.

Disse Jule inspirerte veskene var kjekke å lage.
Dersom jeg har litt tid til overs,

skal jeg få skrevet ned mønsteret.

One of the projects on my needles

...are these "Sylvia" mittens.
Different color way,
same pattern,
special order...

Last one, I promise..

Here is the last one of my scarfs,
finished last night.

These colors are great and bright,
and I also mixed in some effect yarn..
Click on the picture above to enlarge.

Dette er det siste sjerfet,
ferdig i går kveld.
Brukte foruten ullgarn,
også litt effekt garn.
Klikk på bildet over for å forstørre.
Det blir ikke flere av denne sorten på en stund,
det lover jeg akkurat her og nå...

Two more crochet scarfs..

The sun is gone today,
I think it might be about to rain.

These scarfs are made in wool,
warm, but maybe itchy....

Dette mønsteret var kjekt å jobbe med,
så jeg heklet et par skjerf i ull,
i "julefarger"..

Bildene er litt tunge og mørke idag,
solen var bak skydekket et sted.

Cotton scarf

I found this crochet pattern
in a Norwegian week magazine,
and I thought it was quite different looking.
Decided to try it out,
not to hard,
but thicker yarn is probably faster...

I tried a few different kinds of yarn,
and settled on this cotton yarn from my stash.
It is called Saucy, produced in Brazil,
for Reynolds yarn.

Fant dette mønsteret
i nr 19/2007 av Familien.
Syntes det var litt artig og annerledes.
Luftig for Texas,
Her strikket i bommulls garn jeg hadde liggende,
Saucy, produsert i Brasil,
for Reynolds Yarn.
