Ok, today I'll show you all the patterns I bought yesterday! But first, I'm going to show you a find I made today. Every year in February, Sweden has a huge book sale in all the book stores. If you're reading thrillers or classics (at least Swedish ones), you can usually find something. We've found very nice prints of Tolkien, and most of our swedish classics were bought at the sale a cople of years ago. This year I'm trying to save money, so I hadn't planned to buy anything special. But my sister dragged me with her to the stores today, and I fuond this amazing book:
The titel is in Swedish, and says something like The Art of Swedish Crafts. It's simply gorgeous, and it talks about lots of differnt crafts, from wood-carving, to knitting to metal-arts. I'm so pleased, and it cost me less than $10!
Ok, now on to the pattern-bonanza I had yesterday :) I bought the following patterns:
1) Knitting Goddess
2) Little birds cardigan
3) Paper Dolls sweater
4) Eisblumen gloves
5) Tallula's heart mittens
6) Cat socks (to match my cat mittens I'm currently working on :)
7) Brandywine shawl
8) Princess of Maya shawl
9) Scheherazade stole
10) Shetland Garden Faroese shawl
All photos are borrowed from Ravelry. I don't know when I'll have time to knit all of my patterns, but I bet I'll be glad to have them when I get unemployed and can't splurge like this :)
I'll also show you my projects I've worked on since yesterday. I'll start with my Glynis socks, aka the Amazing Pooling Experience...
I like them even though the yarn is pooling a lot, and I'm almost done with the heel. I think I'll work some more on them tonight, as well as the Percy shawl (I really want to finish that one soon!).
I'm also working on the Cat mittens, and I've finished the first cuff. Kate over at Lazy Kate Creates is making a pair of GORGEOUS colourwork mittens, and I got so inspired by her work that I had to start a pair too. I just LOVE making mittens and gloves, they are such fast projects!
Oh, and I have a guilty pleasure to tell you about too. The series The Vampire Diaries have started to air on swedish television, and I can't help to actually kind of like this show! I know it's sort of Beverly Hills 902 10 with vampires, but it's actually sort of captivating. I feel like such an emo to like this one, but I do it anyway :)
Now I'm going to re-heat yesterday's dinner, and then get on with all my knitting projects. Have a nice weekend evereybody!
