The Christmas swap deal

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.

My Christmas decoration this year

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

Goodbye Ally mini-mi

Unfortunately Ally has decided to leave us. As a goodbye gift I crafted a mini-me in her "tenue du travail" wearing some important bling brand assets such as the shield and a golden mean necklace.

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.

Upcycle kitchen cloth

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".

chunky upcycled pouf

This was a small weekend project. I came across 2 ugly poufs in the thrift store, I unraveled the 5 kg of rope and turned it into a chill "pebble" pouf. Stuffed with an old duvet. Hubby is saying we now have enough poufs in da house :-)

Chunky texture cushions

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.
