Jeg tænkte, at det da højst kunne tage et kvarter at sy lynlåsen i. Jeg blev klogere. Men her er den ihvertfald - lynlås und alles!
The little jacket is finished, and I really enjoyed knitting from the newly bought yarn from Michigan! The "Crazy"-yarn was used for the body, and the rest is just green. It worked out well, although the yarn weight wasn't completely identical.
I did think that it would take 15 minutes - at the most! - to sew in the zipper. I got wiser. But here it is - zipper and everything!
Trøjen vejer 215 gram, og den var rigtig sjov at strikke! Selv om den sagtens kan bruges i familien, så var det altså hyggeligt at strikke noget, bare fordi jeg havde lyst. Det er dejligt, når det sjove og det nyttige kan forenes.
Forresten - "Tomten" er et af de svære ord på svensk. Det kan betyde henholdsvis "nisse" og "grund" (den, huset ligger på), og jeg KAN ikke hverken høre eller udtale forskellen. Gad vide, om jeg nogensinde kan det?
The hood is a really nice size, and the sleeves look nice as well. The only thing I'm not that happy with, is how the joined part look under one of the sleeves. I decided that it just have to look like that, but if I make it some other time, I'll need to figure out how to do it.
The cardigan weighs 215 grams, and it was fun to knit! Although it will be well used in the family, it was really nice knitting something just because I felt like it. It's nice when the fun and the practical stuff goes together.
By the way - "Tomten" is a difficult word in Swedish. It can mean "goblin" and "ground" (belonging to your house), and I just CAN'T hear or pronounce the difference. I wonder if I'll ever be able to?
