Day of DIY # 38. Hönsestrikk.

It's time for Husmorsskolans Syförening again and this week I've got something I'm really really pleased with! This was one of those projects that sprung from a need. I needed something to warm an aching stomach. And what do you do when you need? Knit of course! Pic spam!

I decided to knit patterns and sought inspiration from this skirt I blogged about earlier.

I knit it in the round with a size three needle and wool from Klippans Yllefabrik.

First time cutting up something I've knitted! :) Blocketiblock.

Turned out it wasn't at all big enough so I knitted a wedge to fit. Crocheted button holes.

8 buttons, all thrifted.

From the back.

And an artsy shot :)

This was a real confidence boost knit woohoo! ;)

  1. Snygg värmare!
    En kompis till mig skulle sticka en värmare, kanske jag skulle visa henne denna som inspiration?!

  2. Vilket arbete! Så modigt att klippa i något så vackert! :)

  3. Tack för kommentaren på min blogg! Jo, jag hade tusen ideér till filtar men kände att jag ville göra något alldeles extra speciellt denna gång.. =)

    Vilket otroligt vackert arbete! En riktigt inspirationskick att bara titta på det!

  4. Hönsestrikk rules!
    Man blir alltid glad av det (och varm).
