Olenpa ollut laiska taas paivittamaan. Huomasin jo ajat sitten, etta Topperi oli saanut piponsa Merilta, mutta en muistanut kirjata sita tanne ylos. Tassa siis Topperin saama hieno pipo:
I've been so lazy lately. I noticed, that Topperi had received her cap from Meri but I never got to writing it down here. Here's pics of Topperi's fine hat:
This cap is part of a cap exchange organized by yours truly. The deadline is Feb 15th, all the caps must be sent that day. We're still missing some caps (including mine) but we still have plenty of time! This exchange was for Finnish knitters only, I hope to organize an international exchange later this year if there's enough participants.
Jaana naytti blogiinsa kirjanneenkin, etta Ydinjate-sukat on perilla. Lupasin laittaa kuvan kun ovat saajalla, joten tassa tulee:
Jaana mentioned on her blog that she received a pair of socks I made for her. The yarn was my first ever experiment in Kool-Aid dyeing and I called it Nuclear Waste. The yarn turned out to be a mixture of bright lime green and burgundyish brown, and I really didn't like it. Jaana did, though, so I promised to use the yarn for a pair of socks. Here's a picture of them:
Jaana lupasi pistella yhta mun keskeneraista ristipistotyota naita sukkia vastaan. Mika hieno idea, mulla ei ois edistynyt se tyo yhtaan ilman Jaanaa! Laitan siita kuvia kun se on takaisin kotona.
Jaana promised to stitch one of my UFOs in exchange for these socks. A wonderful idea, since that UFO would've been a UFO for a long, long time without her. I'll post some pics when I get it back.
Lankahamsterikisa ei sitten sirkussukkien ole edistynyt yhtaan. Iski hirmuinen plaah, ja eilisilta meni pistellessa. Ystavanpaivakuori edistyi vinhasti joten se paasee pian postiin. Tanaan aattelin kylla nykertaa noi vaihtolapaset. Sita ennen on siivottava, tyokaveri (ja intohimoinen neuloja) tulee kylaan illalla. :)
I haven't finished anything for the yarnhamsters' since the Circus Socks. I don't know why, really, I just didn't feel like it. I spent yesterday evening stitching my mail art envelope for the Valentine's Day swap (on the Finnish cross-stitching group). I made significant progress with it, so I'll be able to mail it soon. Tonight I think I'll finish a pair of mittens for Topperi's mitten exchange. Before that I must clean up, my old co-worker (and a passionate knitter) is coming over tonight. :)
