Skandinavia syr

Det har vært så som så med syinga i sommer, og denne bloggen har vært så godt som død. Dessverre. Jeg hadde store planer om å sy meg en sommergarderobe før ferien, men vannskader i kjelleren satte en stopp for det. Sy rommet ble totalt ødelagt og sy gleden også. Men nå har jeg flyttet maskinene opp i andre etasje, og selv om jeg ikke har alle sy sakene her hjemme har syinga virkelig fått fart igjen. Mye takket være ” Skandinavia Syr“. En konkurranse som har gått på instagram, arrangert av de to Ingvildene fra Sy-mesterskapet på NRK i fjor. Jeg var ikke med alle dagene, men ble skikkelig inspirert. Fått sydd en del og har mange planer for ting jeg vil lage. Særlig stolt av denne softhell jakka til sønnen min som ble ferdig akkurat til ruskeværet starta.

Fantastisk bra initiativ av Ingvild og Ingvild. Jeg tror det er andre året de har dette på Instagram og man finner så mange flinke folk som deler av sin sy glede. Skal snart på et lite mini sy-treff også, gleder meg!

Ha en fin kveld!

Stripes

I need some t-shirts and it’s really fast to sew one when you have a pattern that you like. I really like the site Its always autumn! So much inspiration and tutorials. And one of my favourite t-shirt pattern is her easy tee. And of course I wanted to try it with the Peter Pan collar.

I used some black and white jersey I had and bought half a meter black for the collar and sleeves. The fabric was making me dizzy while I was cutting it because of the really narrow stripes, but I think it’s ok on the finished tee.

I made the neck opening smaller and also made the neckband visible over the Color. It’s hemmed with a twin needle.

First sewn i 2018

I have finished my first project in 2018. It’s the ‘Frill Top‘ from ‘Love Sewing’ magazine. You can download the pattern, but you need the magazine for the instructions and I don’t have that. So I have made some mistakes… I sewed the frill with the shoulder seem. Which felt logical at the time since I made the frills double because it didn’t look so good with the fabric’s backside showing. Maybe the fabric is not the right choise for this project because it is quite heavy… Still I like it! And I love the ruffles! And I’m thinking of making a lighter version for summer.

Hopefully All the wrong choises are going away and the seem ripper tool is coming out in the #2018RTWfast challenge. It’s time for some planning and improving of my sewing skills.

My wip mission: finish the ufos

I decided I would finish all my knitting projects before starting something new. It’s actually working out quite nicely, the only problem is I’m finding ufos all over the house…The last thing I finished was a ‘Skappel’ sweater. It’s really easy to knit and I would say it’s a fast knit, but It was not for me. I get easily bored 🙂 I wear it alot. It’s really warm and light. It’s knitted in Drops Alpaca and Brushed Alpaca Air.

Spring shawl

I have finished this ! We have really cold weather and some days we even have snow 😦 I want sun and warm weather now, the winter has been too long! But a good warm shawl is really good to have around the shoulders these days…

Anyway, I’ve knitted this in Drops Fabel and the pattern is also from Drops. I knitted the whole shawl in garter stitch ( the lace should have been in knit stitch) and I didn’t do the short rows at the beginning .

I am very pleased with this, love the colors and the shape.

Mistakes were made…

That’s what I should call these socks. I wanted to try the JoJo-heel, and I started it, but I knit the same turning twice instead of reversing the turning of the heel. I must say the socks are a perfect fit,  it was easy to knit and it looks very much like heel on a store bought sock.  I’ll certainly do this mistake again 🙂
