Rosie vottene

i en litt annen farge sammensetning.
De havner nok i skapet med de andre.

Der kan de ligge 
til den minste mormor ungen vokser i dem...

in a different colorway.
Yarn: Cascade 220 wool
Needles: 3.5 mm

The third sweater

is not my favorite...
It is originally a Dale pattern,
but I altered it a bit.

With some yarn from my stash
and some new,
it got a bit busy.

Oh well,
I can always make another..
Have a nice weekend!

Mista litt inspirasjon underveis 
på denne genseren til minste sviska.
Var ikke helt fornøyd med farge valget.

Men garnet er herlig,
Dale baby ull,
elsker å strikke barne tøy i det garnet!

God helg alle sammen!

The second sweater

is also an old pattern from Sandnes Garn.

I like to experiment
and chose this blue,
with green and red accent colors.

The original, however,
had very traditional colors,
grey background color,
also very pretty!

Yarn: Cascade Superwash
Needles: 3 and 3,5 mm

I will have to knit a hat to go with it,
 it will hopfully be on my needles by this weekend...

Som jeg skrev i går 
så har jeg nettopp montert 3 barne gensere.
Det var like godt å hoppe i det som å krype i det,
for sånne monterings prosjekter 
kan ofte ble liggende en stund i garnkurven.
Dette er genser nr. 2, 
den tredje genseren kommer i morgen.

This weekend I sat down, outside, enjoying the beautiful weather

...and assambled 3 sweaters.
All of them fairly small.
I will show the first one today,
and the other two will follow in a day or so.

This first one, size 2 years, is called Setesdal,
and the pattern is from one of
Sandnes Ullvare's older catalogs.

After getting the "thumbs up" by a representative
from the yarn factory,
I translated this pattern to English this summer.
This, and a couple of other old patterns,
was used to teach a local knitting class
here in North Houston.
The yarn used is Mountain Mohair,
100% wool, from Green Mountain.
Needles 3 and 3.5 mm.

Ei kjekk liten kofte for en 2 åring.
Mønsteret er fra en gammel Sandnes Ullvare katalog,
og det kalles i katalogen for Setesdal.

Neste kofte blir lagt til i morgen...

My daughters new blog

She work full day,
goes to school at night,
have a baby and a husband
at home,

Halfway in to October

...and this is my first entry this month.
To my defense,
I have had 3 girlfriends visiting me from Norway
for 2 weeks!
We have had so much fun,
lots of girl talk,
lots of laughter.

These Norwegian girls can shop!!!

Every day they had a load like this.
Shop until they drop, lol,
and fell asleep,
all exhausted, in the sofa at night!
we also visited the Renaissance Festival.

This guy welcomed us right inside the gate.
He was very serious,
and didn't talk much.

One could visit the Tarot reader,

or get a Henna Tatoo.

My friends also shopped, -more, off course...
