Colour or AMOCP#6

A Month of Craft Photos, Day 6. Colour.

(No, you didn’t miss day 5, I was simply too tired to arrange any photos yesterday, so I decided to skip it.)

Sock yarn
Soft ock yarn

Gray is not a colour, I hear you say and technically you are correct, I suppose. But to me, gray is one of the best colours.

Blue is also a very nice colour, and it has been one of favourite colours for as long as I can remember. When I was little and many of my friends loved pink, I preferred blue.

All of these lovely skeins of yarn were gifted to me by my very sweet friend Carin! Thank you dear! Here’s a link to her blog.

Inspiration Outdoors or AMOCP#4

A Month of Craft Photos, Day 4. Inspiration Outdoors.

Snow
A snowy and sunny day

I was incredibly busy on Saturday since we had the family and some friends over. The weather was glorious and I was a bit miffed about not having the time to go outside. I did shoot the above photo through our bedroom window, though.

I find a lot of inspiration from nature, plants and trees and birds. But most of all from the weather. Especially rain and snow. I have lots of ideas inspired by the weather, but they’re still on the drawing board. Perhaps they’ll materialise, perhaps not.

Frosty night
Same view, with frost

I don’t know if you can see it, but on this photo the tree and the bushes are covered with frost. It’s the same view as above, as you can see, but this photo was taked at about 0:30 in the morning on the 5th.

An Old FO or AMOCP#3

For my non-knitting friends: FO = Finished Object.

And old scarf

This particular pattern was very popular a few years ago, I knitted this is 2006. It’s called “My So Called Scarf” and is designed by Allison Isaacs. There are over 5800 projects on Ravelry!

I really don’t wear it much anymore. The yarn is very nice, it’s a single ply from a spinning mill on Gotland called Ihregård. However, it’s become very fuzzy and the stitch pattern have become slightly obscured. It’s still is a nice scarf, though, perhaps I should wear it more.

This is what it looked like when it was new

Today is my birthday and I’ve received the best birthday present. Snow.

Craft Tools or AMOCP#2

A Month of Craft Photos, Day 2. Craft Tools.

Craft Tools, amocp#2
Needle case

This lovely needle case was a birthday present from dear friend, Maria. She has made it herself. Stig Lindberg fabric.

This is where I keep many of my craft tools, but not all of them. They simply wouldn’t fit. My favourite knitting needles are, by far, my Knit Pro (Knit Picks) wooden needles. They’re smooth and light and very easy to work with. They’re also very beautiful.

Me In Action or AMOCP#1

A Month of Craft Photos, Day 1. Me in Action!

Knitting in the snow

One of my fabulous collegues, Janna, assisted me today with the first photo on day 1. I started out a bit higher up on that little knoll you see behind me. In my indoor shoes. Naturally, I slipped and ended up on my behind. Twice. While Janna was helping me up (after the first butt tumble) one of the museum’s photographers happened by and was not only amused but also very nice and shot the above photo! Many thanks to Per-Åke!

This is where I fell
I don’t know if you can see it, but this is where I slided downwards
