I think it's about time...

with a little update around here :) I'm reading for my last exam and I can't wait till it's over! But it only leaves a little time for knitting :( Anyway... a little time and a little knitting... can go a far way:

Yes, I finished my wickel-pulli! It only weighs 79g! It is a little big over the shoulders, but who cares... I think it looks a bit like something from Noa Noa in that mint green colour :) I've thought about decorating it with a few beads in the middle of some of the flowers on the front... I have some small white/very pale blue beads that colourwise would be perfect - but I don't know... what do you think?


This is half my spring fling top - I'm using Helles pattern, and I think this will be a major hit this summer!! The yarn is Løve Lacy, a cotton/acrylic blend, which feels perfect for warm summerdays...

My last project (not counting all the UFO's in the basket...) has got nothing to do with summer...

it is a scarf of all my blue/white/grey/lilac/green/... odd ends of yarn - all those little leftovers that take so much space in the stash... I simply cut off varying lenghts and tie them together to make a "magic ball" and knit when I'm tired of cutting and binding, and so on :) I might just be finished when autumn comes *hehe*

Du har helt ret, Elisabeth. Det ligner en top fra NoaNoa, hvem der bare havde hamstret mere Netto-garn.... k.h. Mette

Hej Elisabeth,
Stor tillykke med eksamen!! Herligt at have den overstået - og flotte projekter du viser os! ØV - jeg ærgrer mig over at jeg slet ikke fik hamstret Netto-garn....
:-) Britt

What a lovely idea to make a "magic ball" and what a great result. Love your mint wrap, too.
