Finally fini

Äntligen är parkan klar, det har verkligen varit ett utdraget ihopmonteringsprojekt. Uppstickningen däremot gick på ett nafs. Det sista momentet var knapparna, och jag tycker att de fick ordning på koftan till viss del. Men den är fortfarande väldigt stor och bylsig på mig. Men jag kan tänka mig att den kommer att komma till användning ändå.

Finally parka is fini, it was a long-lasting project. I'm talking about the finishing. The actual knitting went really fast. The last thing was to sew in the buttons and I think they managed to shape the cardi a bit. But it is still very large and fluffy on me. Still I believe it will be in use now and then.
Nu kan jag äntligen ägna mer tid åt mina andra oavslutade projekt och påbörja nya planerade. Och så kan jag drömma om helt nya. Interweave Knits sommarnummer finns nu att tjuvkika på. Här hittade jag några tjusiga drömmar såsom: Pomegranade Blouse av Norah Gaughan, 1824 Blouseon av Mari Lynn Patrick och Sleeveless Tuxedo Shirt av Theresa Schabes.

Now I can spend more time on other unfinished projects and start new planned ones. And I can dream of completely new ones.Interweave Knits summercan now be peaked on. And I found new beautiful dreams, such as: Pomegranade Blouse by Norah Gaughan, 1824 Blouseon by Mari Lynn Patrick and Sleeveless Tuxedo Shirt by Theresa Schabes.
På stickcaféer har jag träffat de fantastiskt duktiga, men blogglösa, stickerskorna Maria och Tanja. Har försökt övertyga om att de vore underbart om de kunde blogga så vi andra kunde få se allt de fina de gör (och de stickar verkligen en hel del). Och jag har lyckats, till viss del. Maria (som också driver en stickbutik) bloggar numera här.

On knitting cafées I've met these prominent, but blogless, knitters Maria and Tanja. Have tried to convince them to start blogging so that we others can see all their fantastic knits (and they do knit a lot). And it worked, partially. Maria (who also runs a knitting shop) has started to blog over here, though only in Swedish.

Oh, many, many thanks! Well, I apprechiate to hear some positive about this cardi since I've not really become friends with it yet.

Mary said...

Very pretty! After seeing some Swedish knitting blogs like yours, I wish I had paid better attention when my grandmother tried to teach me Swedish!

What a great sweater! I think my favorite part are the front pockets--love the rib and buttons on them.

And I think we have the same taste in the Summer Interweave projects. You wll have to let me know which you take on.

mary: Thanks, glad you liked my parka! Swedish is a difficult language. Don't hesitate to let me know if you need to get anything translated och explained.

démonée: Åh, tack ... blir rörd av ditt beröm! Försöker ännu vänja mig vid den vida passformen. Men börjar faktiskt gilla slutsersultatet mer och mer.

erin: Oh thanks, I like the front part with the pockets and ribbing best too. And, I was so glad to find these well-fitting buttons. I also liked the fact that it was knitted up so fast, thanks to the chunky weight. And, last but not least, I learned how to sew parts together thanks to this project.

It's beautiful! And I love the pockets! :-)

Elena said...

Thanks so much Terhi, I really apprechiate your compliment! I'm actually surprised how great the pockets turned out. I think it's the buttons and the ribbing and the chunky weight.

SÅ snygg!
Har du tvättat den? Man brukar kunna forma plaggen i fuktigt tillstånd.

Elena said...

Tack för komplimang! Ah, blocking ... att jag inte tänkt på det. Kanske kan jag forma till den lite över bysten på så sätt. Om inte det skulle funka har jag funderat på att sy in lite?!
