Den er utroligt nuttet, og jeg håber, størrelsen passer. (Ellers må den vel gå til lille Hr. L.) Men det gør den nok.
Rajas raglan er bare en skøn opskrift - pæn, nem og hurtig. What's not to like?
Garnet er Wollmeise fra lageret. Denne gang en blågrøn Silberdistel og noget grå-grønt som jeg ikke lige husker navnet på.
Spending a long day with Mr. Darcy did something, so even though I redid the neck and ended up with a combination of a slightly larger size, using the length from the smaller size, the sweater was done in just 3 days!
It's incredibly cute, and I do hope it fits. (If not, little Mr. L will have it.) I do think it will fit, though.
Rajas raglan is a great pattern - beautiful, easy and fast. What's not to like?
The yarn is Wollmeise from my stash. This time, a blue-green Silberdistel and some green-gray that I don't remember the name of.
Selv om det var en lille ting at få af to-do listen, så er det altså dejligt at den er færdig!
The button is i little big, but all flat, so I hope it won't cause trouble. The sweater was made using size 3.5 and 4 mm needles and weighs 140 grams.
Although this was a very small thing to remove from the to-do list, it's wonderful that it's done!

Bogen fik jeg i julegave og nåede faktisk at læse den i lufthavnen i Tel Aviv, fordi bagagefolkene lige strejkede et par timer. Så er jeg ligesom opdateret på handlingen, hvilket jo er rart! Tænk, hvis jeg nu kom til at sidde der og tro at hun for en gangs skyld accepterede Mr. Collins' frieri. Oh gru!
Rigtig god lørdag derude!
It's time for our yearly, ritual day of watching Pride and Prejudice. An entire day of "hygge", knitting and drama!
I got the book for Christmas, and read it in the airport in Tel Aviv, since the luggage-crew had a spontaneous strike for a few hours. But then I'm updated on the content of the story, which is nice! Just imagine if I would sit there, waiting for Elizabeth to accept Mr. Collins' proposal. The horror!
Wonderful Saturday out there!

Min eneste bekymring er, om den der utroligt store baby nu er utroligt fed (og vi husker lige på, at babyer faktisk gerne må være fede! Især, hvis de ammes eller bare har genetiske planer om at blive utroligt høje) og halsåbningen derfor er for lille.
Er en god begyndelse dobbelt så god hvis man laver den om?
In Denmark, we have a saying "Well started is half done", and I count on that. The Raja sweater, has started. A very lucky combination of Lene Holme Samsøe and Wollmeise.
My only worry is whether this incredibly big baby now turned out incredibly fat (and we all remind each other that babies are allowed to be fat! Especially, if they are breast-fed or just have genetic plans to grow incredibly tall) making the neck too tight.
Is a good start twice as good if you redo it?

De her er ægte restestrømper - både det lyserøde og det stribede med glimmer - og resterne blev stort set brugt op, så det er jo fint! Ialt 30 gram garn på pind 2,5 mm.
Nu mangler jeg så at strikke 4 par strømper inden udgangen af marts. De næste skal være med noget andet end ribmønster.
Someone turns 2 very soon, and will get socks. Of course. Although (or maybe because) little Miss T2 just had a baby brother, she needs PINK socks.
These are pure leftover socks - both the pink yarn and the glittery striped - and the leftovers were all but used, which is great! All in all, 30 grams of yarn using size 2.5 mm needles.
So now I just need to knit 4 pairs of socks before the end of March. The next socks will be with a different pattern than just ribbing.

Den der strikke to-do liste er så håbløst lang i øjeblikket, ligesom alle mine andre lister, men jeg må jo arbejde mig igennem den. Heldigvis er det jo dejligt at strikke ;-)
As I mentioned before, our very tiny, slender physiotherapist had the nerve to get birth to a giant boy, when I planned for her to get a tiny girl (that I accidentally had a vest ready for). Knitting something for him is on my to-do list, and now I decided it will be this one. In the DK wollmeise, making laundry easy, and then it's also knitted on 4 mm needles, making it kind of quick. I hope.
My knit-to-do list is so hopelessly long right now, like all my other lists, but I guess I'll just have to work my way through it. Fortunately, knitting is a lovely activity ;-)

De kan umuligt tage lang tid at hækle, og du vil blive i godt humør både når du laver den og når du bruger den. (Om ikke andet kan man da tænke på, at man helt sikkert har det varmere end pingvinerne på Sydpolen!) Mønster finder du her.
Who wouldn't need a tiny penguin? For the clothes, for the pacifier leash, the keyring, as a magnet or just because they are so incredibly cute?
They can't take a lot of time to crochet, and they will cheer you up, not only when you make it, but also when using it. (If nothing else, they can remind you that your life is WAY warmer than that of the South Pole penguins!) The pattern can be found here.

Another pair of socks are done, and so far, my plans are coming along nicely. 6 socks in 6 weeks! These, too, are plain rib on 2.5 mm needles using Opal Hundertwasser, but although they look very nice and innocent, they didn't come along smoothly.
Planen var også, at de skulle blive str. 41-42, men det gik heller ikke! De er endt med en god str. 39, og da de jo umuligt kunne blive længere, må jeg i gang med et par herrestrømper til. Der gik 70 gram garn til dem. Vist nærmest en standardvægt til mine projekter i år!
I ran out of yarn! Just before the toe. There was a sense of panic for a while, but then I checked my left-overs and found some blue and something for the other stripes, so it ended up okay. You wouldn't think that they are not identical when seeing them!
I planned for them to be a man's size, but that didn't work out either. They ended up being a nice lady's size, and since it's impossible to make them longer, I need to knit another pair of man socks. These socks took 70 grams. This year's standard weight for projects!

På arbejdet er det sådan liiiige frisk nok, når man går gennem mellemgangen fra den ene bygning til den anden......
Winter certainly arrived! Oh, how cold it suddenly got, but all the white snow looks really pretty, and I enjoy the fact that it doesn't really disturb my commuting to work. The metro and the train are running anyway.
At work, it is kind of a bit too refreshing walking on the bridge from one building to the other building.....
For some reason, parking is not allowed here right now, but I found it so funny that covering the signs was used for showing the Swedish colors! You just need to grab your opportunities!
Bagefter var jeg i Netto, hvor påskeæggene lige var sat frem. Der var også andre gode sager, så jeg skyndte mig at købe ind til næste gang de skal have slik.
Manden bag mig i køen kastede forargede blikke, mens han stod der med sine (udelukkende) sunde varer. Så kunne han føle sig endnu sundere!
I mailed a package to the US. I had quite a pile of Donald Duck cartoons, so although I didn't have anything knitted to send, it was time for a package.
Afterwards, I went to the supermarket, and the Easter eggs had just been put on the shelves. They had other good things as well, so I bought candy for next time they need it.
The guy behind me in the line looked at it with contempt, standing there with his (all) healthy grocery. But I guess it made him feel even healthier!

Jeg glæder mig allerede til det bliver færdigt, og er kommet i tvivl om det overhovedet skal forlade mit hjem?
The crochet blanket is growing kind of nice and steady. One square a day on the train, and suddenly, I have 14 squares! It is fun with the different shades, although the finished blanket will have a smaller proportion of the more dusty colors.
Already, I'm looking forward to the finished blanket, and I started doubting whether it will leave my home at all?

Lille L er noget så velkommen, og jeg glæder mig til at se ham på et tidspunkt.
Nå ja - og så SKAL jeg altså have strikket noget til fysioterapeutens "lille" baby, der vejede et helt kilo mere end ham her da han blev født for 1½ måned siden! Der er så meget jeg skal have strikket....
The guy who needed all the knitted stuff, entered the world. Isn't he just the cutest? He is exactly 8 days old today, and he looks so satisfied in all the photos that I really don't think he will ever loose weight like all other babies do. He is really well fed!
Little L is so welcome, and I'm really looking forward to seeing him some time.
Oh well - and then I MUST knit something for the physiotherapist's "little" baby who weighed a kilo more than this guy at birth 6 weeks ago! So many things I need to knit.....

My usual life started again. Getting up early, taking the train, crossing the border to Sweden. This Friday, my bike kept me company! Quite incredibly, everything went smoothly that day, and I got to switch train in Malmö and everything, and still got to work on time! (Changing the train's timetable with 2 minutes, arriving in Lund a bit earlier, also really helped.)
On Friday night, I was biking. Through a new part of town. In the dark and cold. Yikes..... But having a bike over there as well really IS smart!
Det kunne være sjovt at se det rigtigt, men jeg ville ikke gå derned, når jeg ikke havde noget at gøre dernede.
On Sunday morning, a door in the backyard was opened which is usually locked up. It leads down to the basement, and the size of it was impressive!
Could be fun to see it "for real", but I didn't want to go down there because I had nothing to do down there.
Hårbøjlen er fra Jerusalem, og hun var ikke ked af at ligne en araber prinsesse!
Later, little Miss T1 came visiting. She insisted on us taking a photo together, she wanted to play Super Mario and is old enough to watch "Frozen". It was a very nice day.
The headband is from Jerusalem, and she really liked looking like an Arab princess!
Det er dejligt at være hjemme igen, men det bliver nu også rart med et par aftener alene hjemme denne uge efter at have været meget social i weekenden!
I received my Christmas present of homemade earrings. Of course I put them on for work the next day.
It is wonderful being at home again, but I will enjoy a few evenings at home alone this week after a very social weekend!

Alle ved jo, at de svampe man kan fange, giver forskellige super-egenskaber. Men nu kan de så også varme ørerne!
Det trænger vi jo nok til lige for tiden, hvor den russiske kulde er på vej ind over Skandinavien. Uf, det bliver koldt! Mønsteret finder du her.
Super Mario is still very much fun, although he is more than 30 years old!
Everybody knows that the mushrooms you catch can give super-abilities. Now they can even warm up your ears!
We really need that right now, with the Russian cold wind visiting Scandinavia next week. Yikes, it will get cold! The pattern is right here.
