did this great swap with an old class mate.
I got 3 sets of counterfeit royal Copenhagen Christmas decoration, which he produces under the radar together with an old friend.
He got 8 knitted Christmas balls.
Just picked up this random branch from the street and suspended it from the ceiling. Perfect to hang your knitted Christmas balls. I'm not a fan of the traditional Christmas tree. So sad all those trees that get cut down just to decorate our homes. Don't want to think of the carbon footprint it represents
i crocheted this bag to use for a birthday gift of delicacies, instead of the traditional basket. It could just about hide a bottle of wine. It was a quick weekend project. I used the thickest cord out of the "leftovers from Industry" curtain cord. That calls for hook size 8mm.
1350 gr of cotton stash, leftovers, recycled yarn, abandoned projects and yarn from the thrift shop has been turned into 37 kitchen cloths. Already given some away. My little effort to limit micro plastic washing into the oceans. Still plenty of ends to weave in, for a rainy Sunday. There is a very nice Danish Facebook group called "vi strikker vores kareklude selv".
All coincidences. I just happened to have a heap of scraps of Lana Grossa Regazza Lei. And it just so happened that my cushion covers were broken. So why no knit some chunky cushion covers?
And because I had some extra knitting time (due to ill health) I finally had time to teach myself basket weave and herringbone stitch. Which is just lovely in chinky Lana Grossa Regazza Lei.
Pronto two chinky knit cushion covers. Well, that was actually last year. Due to that Ill health I'm also not so presto blogging
Recently added to the collection: the mustard yellow sister. In Smyrnalaine which I bought on a Frencg flea market. This time just simple seed stitch, because, really, there was not enough yarn. Actually have had to make the backside in some beige Drops Andes. Turned out that the transition from Smyrnalaine to Drops Andes was the most challenging part of the project, because gauge is not identical.
