Lustakad triibud. Joyful stripes


Pildilolev tore noormees sai selle kampsuni endale sünnipäevaks. Poisi emme (või võib-olla issi) korraldas koduse fotosessiooni, mida siin nüüd nautida saab.

The fine young man on the photo got this sweater for his birthday. His mum (or maybe dad) arranged a photo session at home that you can see here now.



Pildilt on näha, et sinise lõnga üks kera oli veidi teist tooni. Loodetavasti see kandjat ei häiri.

You can easily notice that unfortunately one skein of blue yarn had a little color difference compared to the other skeins. Hopefully it doesn't bother too much...

Tellised ja pits. Bricks and lace


Teine Hollandist lahkumise kingituseks kootud sall on teie ees. Kasutasin Sacre Coeur mustrit, kuid äärde lisasin heegeldatud pitsi. Lõngaks on Emmebi Kiddy (28 grammi), vardad 4 mm.

The second scarf I made as a good bye gift is in front of you. I used Sacre Coeur pattern but added crochet lace to the edge. Yarn is Emmebi Kiddy (28 grams), needles 4 mm.

Üks hall sall läks rändama... One grey scarf went wandering


Praegu on käsil minu viimane Hollandis elamise nädal. Pühapäeval kolin Šveitsi. Kudusin oma hollandi tööandjatele lahkumiskingitused. Nii toredaid ja sooje inimesi annab leida.

Right now it's my last week of living in the Netherlands. On Sunday I'm going to move to Switzerland. I made good bye gifts for my Dutch employers. They are such amazing people!


Muster / Pattern: Free Spirit
Lõng / Yarn: Katia Olé Socks Arequipa, 100 g
Vardad / Needles: 4 mm

Tore asi selle mustri juures on, et sall on kantav mõlemat pidi!

Nice thing about this stitch is that both sides look nice!

Suvised lumepallid. Summer snow balls


Viimane ese beebiaksessuaaride seeriast! Loodetavasti hakkab seda mütsi kandma hulk fotogeenilisi tittesid :)

Järgisin printsess Charlotte'i mütsi õpetust, kuid lisasin tutid ning paela tegin ka teistsuguse.

Last item in my baby accessories series! Hopefully lots of photogenic babies will wear it :)

I followed princess Charlotte's bonnet pattern but did some changes - added pom-poms and also the ribbon I made differently - I made it as i-cord. 

Muster / Pattern: Princess Charlotte's Bonnet

Mähkmed peitu. Hideaway nappy cover

Fotosessioonidel on tore, kui mähkmeid näha pole. Fotograaf palus mul teha mähkmete katte ja siin ta on.

It's nicer if you don't see the nappies on the photos. The photographer asked me to make a nappy cover. Here it is. 



Sama lõngakombinatsioon nagu eelmises postituses. Kokku kulus 12 grammi lõnga. Idee, mida veidi modifitseerisin, pärineb siit.

The same yarn combo as in the previous post. In total I used 12 grams of yarn. The idea that I modified a little bit is from here

Üks pisike müts. One little hat

Üks hollandi sõbranna tegutseb töö kõrvalt ka fotograafina ning palus, kas ma võiks beebide fotosessioonideks mõned asjad talle teha. Järgmised paar postitust näitavad neid asju, mis ma talle kudusin. 

One of my friends in the Netherlands is a photographer. She asked me if I could make some props for her baby photos. Couple of posts now will show what I made for her. 


Kasutasin kahte lõnga - valget Alize Lanagold 800 ja pehmuse ning kohevuse andmiseks lisasin sinaka mohäärlõnga. Kokku kulus 15 grammi lõnga, vardad 3.5 mm. 

Õpetus siit: Incredible Expanding Gnome Cap (Ravelry link)

I used 2 yarns held double - white Alize Lanagold 800 and blueish mohair blend to give volume and softness. In total I used 15 grams of yarn, needles 3.5 mm.

Tviid ja palmikud. Tweed and cables


Siin ta on - minu esimene meeste vest. Selle vesti kudusin Ameerikas puhkusel olles - pikad autosõidud olid ideaalsed kudumiseks. Kuna ma ei osanud lõnga kogust õigesti arvestada, jäi lõpus halli lõnga puudu ning samasugust lõnga polnud mul võimalik puhkusel olles kuskilt juurde saada. Kiire otsing internetis lähima lõngapoe asukoha kohta ning läksime koos tulevase vestiomanikuga lõnga valima.

Valituks osutus imehea meriinolõng. Kokkuvõttes tegi see minu meelest vesti isegi toredamaks, et see teise värviga lõpetatud on.

Here it is - my very first men's vest. I made it during the vacation in US - long road trip hours were perfect for knitting. I didn't have enough grey yarn and no way to get the same yarn easily in US. So quick search in internet to find the nearest yarn shop and off we went with the future vest owner. 

Future vest owner decided to go with this brown yarn (after listening to some suggestions :)). I think in the end the vest looks better with two colors. 


Muster / Pattern: Man's Cable Vest

Welcome!

Hello, nice to see you here! Some of you might have followed my old blog which is available here. So why did I decide to start a new one? In my old blog I was writing about my crafting and about my trips and I started to feel that it's not completely crafting blog any more. Neither was it a travel blog. I decided to keep those two a little bit more separate but still a little bit together as well. So that's how this blog was born.

You can also find all the patterns I've published in my old blog here. I plan to write down more patterns in the future. I believe in free sharing. So if you are interested in free patterns you can come and check back here every now and then.

I hope you will enjoy this blog! To the next crafting posts!
