In Proj'so mitten knit along the pattern for March mittens was Selbuvotter. The knitalong at Facebook has become very popular. They had reached 800 members now and had to set limits for new members. It looks like Norway will be well supplied with hand-knitted mittens! I have knit this pattern from Hifa, it's called Rose Mittens. I knitted them in Silja. I knitted cuff with needles 3 and the mitten with 2.5. The cuff was easy to knit and makes it very decorative. To be called Selbuvotter I think there should be this kind of rose with eight leaves, except for that there is many varieties.
This weekend Norwegian Quilteforbund has their annual meeting at Quality Hotel Sarpsborg. I'm not a member, but it was open for visitors at the exhibition and shops. So I took a trip and almost got a shock when I came in and saw all the stores that participated, 18 quiltshop with all the beautiful fabrics and patterns! It was like a dream to walk around to look. It was hard not to buy everything I wanted , but my wallet put limits there.
These pictures just give a small idea of it all.
Men noe kjøpte jeg :) But I bought something :)
Jeg falt helt for dette veggbildet. I fell in love with this wallhanging.
Se de nydelige stoffene! Look at those beautiful fabrics!
Jeg fikk også masse inspirasjon. Og for meg som er glad i å sy vesker, var det morsomt å legge merke til at her gikk de fleste med selvsydde vesker :)
I also got a lot of inspiration. And for me, who loves to sew bags, it was amusing to see that here had almost all self-made bags :)
