New knits

I think it might be time for a new post about the knitting I’ve been doing lately.

First of all, a crazy idea has been taking up most of my needle-time this past week – a cozy rainbow blanket! I’m using the feather and fan stitch pattern, to keep it as simple as possible. And I must say that the ripples work exceptionally well with the Kauni rainbow yarn. This is the umpteenth time I’ve used this yarn. The colours are just gorgeous and over-the-top. Just the way I like it. The yarn itself is definitely on the scratchy side. If you’re a viking like me, that doesn’t really matter much, but I know a lot of you do not appreciate it.
Well, onto pictures!

I’ve also made a great deal of socks!
It’s pretty great not to have cold feet. This might also have something to do with spring breaking the land-lock of winter that has kept us inside for so very long.
First up is Skew knitted in Zauberball crazy:

Ah, and I finally finished the Tomten jacket for Jonatan, which lay forgotten in my drawers far too long. But! Now it’s here and it fits perfectly.

Last, I made a lil’ hat, because Jonatan kept pointing out that I wasn’t wearing a hat, even though he was! It’s loosely based on Soulemama’s Rosa Hat.

It’s knit in BC garn Lucca Fino, in the leftovers from the scarf I made for my brother. Which reminds me that I never showed you that, either.

I think that about wraps it up for now.
I’m busy at work, so it’s more doing and less showing from my part these days. But that’s all right. It’s just a silly crafts blog, after all.
