If There Is Nothing To Do...

First the finished projects. I still find it difficult to finish my WIP's and UFO's. It is like everything and anything else is more interesting than those projeckts I started last summer. And since I've needed to tier down one project few times, it is like nothing is getting foward. 

One of my friends is having a baby in May and since it's going to be a boy and she doesn't like blue, I feel that I can help her with the blue-knittings. The jacket is Baby Sophisticate and I knitted of left over Novita Aino-yarn with 5,5mm needles and it took approx 100g. This was second top down pattern for babywear I've tried and to be honest, I'm growing fond of the method.

 I've always wanted to have a pair of stranded knittined mittens, but my efforts to actually knit nice looking fair-isle mittens have ended up to be frogged and forgot. So, I decided to try it a little different way. I casted on one pair of the Haavisto-mittens with 6,5mm needles and Sandnes Garn Fritidsgarn. Too bad, the winter is almost past, so I can't wear them anymore...

 And, I have finished one of my three blankets. Also that was frogged two or three times until I was happy with it. It is basic crocheting with triple Novita Nalle Four Seasons and 8mm hook.

Knitted sideways with stipes10-8-6-4-2. Note the crab-edging, my first ever.

 And then to my WIP's and UFO's... Sorry about the pictures, the sun was shining on Monday when I took the pictures while cleaning up the livingroom. 

The big left over-blanket and granny squares. (Due the Picassa-insident I've lost rest of the pictures of WIP's and UFO's I had at the time. There were plenty of them.)
