I am trying to find my voice again on Blogger and how I want this to look like.  Unfortuately have I forgotten how to do things but I will get there.
But there will be one change taking place very soon: to change from the English language to Norwegian. You will have to use Google translate or something like tat.. Sorry.

This is bad...

When I finally decide to do major makeover on my blog, I've forgotten most of "how to". But...I will bring life back to my blog. Just wait and see :D

Flying Colours

I finally finished my Flying Colour sweater from the 40's (I think it is).



I used thin yarn meant for knitting baby out fits.  This makes the sweater more than thick enough.
And here's the pattern:

Still knitting....

.... since I have to find me a new home to live in by the end of June. I don't like it. So I have put away all my quilting for now. I still have my sewing machine on the table though along with my knitting needles.
This is a new technique to me: knitting from the top down. At this point not too difficult to handle.

But at this point I'm not a big fan. It was rather a lot to handle when knitting the arms, and the last one.....

But it turned out just fine in the end. It was rather easy to knit this way as well. I made this out of different but yet similare yarn types when it comes to tension and needle size. A good way to stretch a yarn budget and use up leftovers. 

The back. In the pictures this jacket still needs a good press and buttons, but that's fixed now.

Soo.... I had to start on a new jacket, this time for my eldest son. He had his birthday in April and was told about this gift. He was also told that he had to wait for it to be finished. :D

and of course I have to show you my "boyfriend" Hunter .... again :D

Progress again.....

This is a picture of the pattern I used for my latest knitted jacket.

But ... I didn't have enought of that black wool. I have more black wool but not more of the brand I used here.

So I had to mix withe and black to suit the amount of wool I actually had and added some red.

I think these changes made the pattern a bit more interesting.  All it need now is a good press and nine metal buttons.

 My cats and dogs BAQ block is turning out real well too. It's fun again :D

Hello (fill in) ..... I'm back!

Well.....more or less ....

 For my x mother in law (and good friend)
Front without buttons .... for now.

Back view. Not bad. Haven't knitted pattern like this for years so I'm pleased with what I see. I won't give it away just yet. I have one more to make:

This is a jacket for my x father in law (and good friend). He needs something warm as well. And he likes read. 

This is the reason I feel like I have returned to stitching. It's a Baltimore block from one of E.S. many books about BAQs, Beyond Baltimore. It appears in a BAQ named Rememberance II by Jane Sheridan. The name of the block is Family pets.

See? My two favorite animals: cats and collies. I'm also very pleased that I found and learned about the back basting technique. It makes things SOO much easier.
