Jeg har ryddet litt i noe garn og fant tre nøster med tykt rødt garn, Månetoppen, og en rest med hvitt. Jeg tenkte på at det kunne bli fine tova votter. Jeg fant fram mønsteret Oktoberstjerne fra MaBe. Det var spennende å se om det ble nok hvitt garn - og det holdt. Det var ca. 1 meter igjen da jeg var ferdig! Jeg tovet de i vaskemaskinen på 40 grader, med en 20 minutters vask. De ble deilige og myke. I have cleared up some yarn and found three skeins of thick red yarn, Månetoppen, and a little of white. I thought it could be nice felted mittens. I found the pattern Oktoberstjerne from MaBe. It was exciting to see if there was enough white yarn - and it was. It was approx. 1 meter left when I was done! I felted them in the washing machine at 40 C degrees, with a 20 minute wash. They became delicious and soft.
But there was more red yarn left, enough for a pair of mittens. I knitted stitches as the first pair, but without the white. I had to felt them twice to get suitable mittens. It is always exciting with felting, you never know what the result will be.
På vei gjennom gågata i Sarpsborg fikk jeg se disse flotte blomstene. Det er visst en rosa magnolia. Det så rent eksotisk ut! On the way through the main street in Sarpsborg, I saw these beautiful flowers. I think it is a pink magnolia. It looked really exotic!
