Woollen Twig and Leaf shawl, pitsihuivi


My mother-in-law is born on Christmas day. This time we celebrated round numbers and were told not to bring gifts if they were not hand made. I scouted for a pretty shawl pattern and found this on Ravelry. It´s the Twig and Leaf design by Anne Hanson. A thank you gift to a very inspirational and significant figure in my life, who by the way holds a degree in textile design.


Anoppini eli “Isoäiti” on ollut innoittajana monelle askareelleni (ja blogipostaukselle). Continue reading

Dog´s jumper, koiran villis

Foxyn villis

This is Foxy, an adorable Basenji who lives with my son and his girlfriend. She is wearing the jumper I made her to match the one I knitted for my son a few years ago. It’s a modified version of a Drops pattern.


Foxy sai villapaidan joka sopii isännän samasta langasta neulottuun harmaaseen villikseen. Molemmissa on korkea poolokaulus ja palmikkoneule. Foxyn asuun laitoin napit mahan alle helpottamaan pukemista. Selän puolella on lyhennettyjä rivejä tuomassa pituutta. Tämä on muunneltu versio Drops:n mallista.


The jumper has a turned down turtleneck collar and buttons down the front to make it easier to put on. In the back I´ve used short rows to give it lenght.

Ready to go!

Onneksi Foxy pitää villapaidastaan!

Sauna gear, saunavarusteet

Vihreä kylpytakkiThe sleeves of my bathrobe ended up too short so I lengthened them by sewing on some lace. Being one of my favourite colours I had some linen yarn of the same green in my stash that I could use to crochet the lace edgings. I undid the cuff, turned a narrow hem onto the right side and sewed the lace onto the edge of the sleeves. And gained nearly three more centimeters 🙂

Woollen throws, neulottuja peitteitä


A good knitting project to have lying around is a big blanket, it won´t get finished too quickly! While planning other things to do I can keep busy with knitting something easy. This blue throw will some day adorn our flowery sofa.


Joku käsityö pitää aina olla helposti jatkettavissa silloin kun suunnittelee seuraavia. Neulottu peite on tähän tarkoitukseen mitä mainioin työ. Continue reading
