December and Advent are coming soon. In the knitting community on social media, it is time for many Christmas knitalongs and mystery knits. I had no intention of joining any of them. But suddenly I was involved in two knitalongs, and had signed up for two more which will start later. Then I wanted to sew myself some Christmas/winter project bags. I looked in my fabric shelf and found treasures I had forgotten. About 10 years ago I bought some fabrics from the US online on sale. At that time it didn't cost too much in postage, and it actually paid off compared to Norwegian fabric prices. These fabrics were perfect for project bags. They are different on the front and back, so here are pictures of them on both sides.
The first I joined was FørjulsSnadder knitalong on Kule Julesokker. It is a mystery knit from BeasStrikkedesign that runs in November. They have found their place in this knitting bag and are ready for the next part of the pattern.
Så ble jeg med på Abbaknit Designs julesamstrikk. Der kan en strikke så mange en vil av hennes småstrikk mønstre. Noen av mønstrene hennes var strikket med Drops Air. Jeg hadde noen nøster Drops Air liggende som jeg gjerne skulle brukt opp, så da passet det bra å bli med der. Jeg har strikket to Airy fletteluer og en Airy flettehals . Jeg har enda et nøste, så kanskje det blir mer.Then I joined Abbaknit Design's Christmas knitalong. There you can knit as many of her accesoare patterns as you want to. Some of her patterns were knitted with Drops Air. I had a few skeins of Drops Air in my stash that I would like to use , so it was a good idea to join in there. I have knitted two Airy braided hats and an Airy braided neck. I have one more skein, so maybe there will be more.
The first mitten mystery knitalong I signed up for was Vinterflora mittens by Vivian Aas. It begins on November 19. The yarn is ready with one of the new project bags.
Den andre vottesamstrikken er fra Torirot design og heter Julevotten 2023. Den begynner 1. desember.
The second mystery mitten knitalong is from Torirot design and is called Julevotten 2023. It starts on 1 December.
