winter knits

uncomplicated basic stuff – a sweater, a hat, a pair of mittens and a pair of wrist-warmers IMG_20150105_111848 Untitled “Heathered” cardi – I am not 100% happy with the way it turned out and the yarn (from laid-down little spinning mill Morjärvs ullspinneri) is definitely on the prickly side, but it is warm! Untitled Untitled A bicycle hat for my husband (this simple pattern) , want to knit one for myself Untitled Untitled mittens (inspired by the colors of this winter) from my handspun yarn stash Untitled simple wrist-warmers Untitled and fun free-form pullover on it’s way IMG_20150206_092755

    Nice to do “plain” projects once in a while.

    Why are you not 100% happy with the cardi, except for the pricklyness? It looksvery nice and comfortable to me.

      Thanks! Well it is not quite right around the bust somehow compare to my other sweaters, but k am getting used to it and I am wearing it on the top of long-armed t-shirt, so it is an ok winter kofta :)

      Knitting is a sort of procrastination activity for me, just happens bit by bit here and there – compare to weaving, when every step is very measurable and concentrated.

    you’ve been busy – keeping warm. the sweater looks very practical, like hoe the stripes square on the hat.
