Jeg er visst på sokkekjøret igjen! Et par sokker til ferdig. Og hva er det neste prosjektet jeg strikker på? SOKKER! Jeg liker veldig godt mønstrene til Bitta Mikkelborg. I 2013 laget hun en bok som het Sokker. Strikking hele året. Jeg har strikket mange sokker fra den boka. Men Merediths vår kom jeg aldri i gang med, selv om de sto på lista mi. Flere av sokkene hennes fikk navn etter personer i TVserien Grey's Anatomi, og dette var altså sokkene tilegnet Meredith Grey. Nå, endelig har jeg strikket dem! Og er så fornøyd med dem. Garnet er håndfarget fra Stulen Strikk og heter Spansk Margeritt.
I am really back to sock knitting again! One more pair of socks finished. And what's the next project I'm knitting on? SOCKS! I really like the patterns of Bitta Mikkelborg. In 2013, she made a book called "Socks. Knitting all year round." I have knitted many socks from that book. But I never got started with Meredith's Spring, even though they were on my list. Several of her socks were named after people in the TV series Grey's Anatomy, and these were the socks dedicated to Meredith Grey. Well, I finally knitted them! And am so happy with them. The yarn is hand dyed from Stulen Strikk and is called Spanish Daisy.
Brit Strikkenerd has a knit-a-long on Ravelry that lasts all year where we will knit designs from Bitta Mikkelborg. All projects that are submitted there are included as tickets in the draw for a knitting-related Advent calendar from Brit Strikkenerd. And Brit is very generous and also draws a winner quarterly. And the first quarter I was so lucky to be the one who was drawn !! 😍 And the prize? I could choose one of Bitta's many books. Bitta has made books with socks, cloths, shawls and scarves, hats, mittens, and several knitting diaries. I already have quite a few of those books, so I chose the newest one, "Bittas Knitting Planner". In addition to space for noting projects, there is also patterns
for 24 new cloths.
Og nå er enda en ny vårblomst sprunget ut - Hvitveisen! And now another new spring flower has come- "Hvitveisen". I am not sure about the English name.
