I know I haven’t been posting a lot in 2013, so to make up for that I decided to post a triple FO post. (That or I can’t keep up with the posts).
Meet the Cozy Bottle.
It’s a bottle cozy for your hot water bottle, and in my case it might actually be the thing that saves another hot water bottle from becoming a kitty scratch fest.
You an choose between this pattern and another patter, and there are two size options. It’s a great project to use leftover yarns, in total it weighs about 100 grams. I love this little cozy! It’s so nice and soft, also the colors really match my couch 😀
The second FO is none other than Strokkur. I finished it a while ago, but I had to sew on some extra buttons. It’s already my favorite cardi ever and I’ve been wearing it a lot!
I really like the way it turned out! I usually find sweaters and cardi’s a bit too short, so I made the bottom part (before the decreases) about 10cm longer. I also made the sleeves longer and added a hole for my thumb (I’ll show this another time, I don’t have a picture yet).
It’s great because now it’s also a fingerless mitt-sleeve when I’m on the bike 🙂
The third FO I’d like to show you is my pair of vanilla socks 🙂
Meet Gaudi socks part 3. I knitted a pair for the BF a while ago, but I accidentally threw them in the washer. Not a very big problem, but I noticed that Drops Delight tends to shrink. (I know, it’s not sock yarn, even though it’s being marketed as such). So I decided to knit a pair with schoppel wolle sock yarn (in white) and drops fabel in red-ish..
I’m already nearly done with the first sock, (I took this picture yesterday morning).. Gotta love knitting socks man.. 🙂
