Hovedsakelig om strikking og andre garn- og tekstilrelaterte aktiviteter, men også litt om stort og smått i hverdagen.

Maja in the flesh
Look! Spring has arrived in my garden! Most of it is still coverd in snow, but one little corner is bare, and those are my tulips taking a peak!
These days I spend a lot of time writing on my bachelor in child welfare, but I still get some time to knit too.
I finished Maja the hat.
I really like knitting with variegated yarn on a solid base. And I love the Maja pattern!
I didn't manage to keep the gauge of 36 stitches, which I though was really tiny!
So I sort of made a beret instead of a hat...(Notice Malawi's white toe in the upper right corner. Making sure I'm doing it right).
But I still love the colours!
And it still fits, even though I didn't keep the gauge.
Pattern: Maja the hat from Born to Knit
Yarn: Mc: PT2 and Cc Drops Delight
Needles: 2 and 2.5
A nice knit in a lovely pattern, will definitely make more of these! But then in a thinner yarn, perhaps next time it will be a hat rather than a beret : )
Ninja thinks a sun streak on the floor is great for napping!
