Knitting and sewing

Have been sewing a bit this week end. Almost finished a new Advent table runner like the one I made a little while ago, and made another toilet bag like the one I did sew last time. I'll post a picture of the table runner when I'm done with the binding. It is a bit smaller than the other one.

I have been knitting between the sewing now and then, and I'm working on a pair of socks in purple and white. I've also made a pair in blue/white. It is called "Selbustrikk", an old traditional pattern from Selbu, a place outside Trondheim, where I live. I have always liked the mittens and socks from these patterns, and I can still remember my best friend got mittens like these from her grandmother when we where kids. And hers where always warm, while mine where so cold after playing in the snow for some time.
I bought the pattern from Selbu Husflid, and I use wool yarn for these. The pattern has 42 projects for knitting inside.

Kjempeskjønne sokkar! Krev masse konsentrasjon å få til noko slikt. Skal tru om niesa mi har dette heftet (Strikkemoro)?

Those are looking gorgeous, Laila! Ohmygoodness!!!

I think knitting and crocheting are wonderful creative outlets...and it's always nice to switch things up a bit. I love the feel of the yarn passing through my fingers. Enjoy!
