Christmas and cardigans

Almost a year ago, I started knitting. I haven't knitted anything more complicated than leg warmers since we learned the basics in school, so it has taken me some time...But now it's finally finished, my first knitted cardigan!


I can't seem to stick to any patterns anymore, so this is made without, and therefore slightly too wide in front of the shoulders, the arms slightly too tight in the same area and so on. But maybe it's still wearable? We'll see...

Remember this?

I've taken it in and shortened it now, and I'm pretty pleased with the result! It wasn't all that difficult either, as I had read this tutorial by Casey. Very helpful.


Did you have nice holiday? Our Christmas and new years have been very low key, Mr Kitten has had the flu the whole time so we've pretty much stayed at home and watched movies.

Happy new year!

Those cardigans are fabulous! Good job shortening the black one. I wouldn't even dare to attemp that. Happy New Year

Fin kofta du stickat! Vi var hemma och hade två vänner över på nyår, så vi tog det lugnt. Har hört att många andra också varit sjuka över jul och nyår.

I think the cardigan turned out great, I'm also training my knitting skills (used to be pretty ok with the basics back in school, but I've forgotten so much). Knitting patterns are just really the hardest to understand so I'm training without, too...
And the black cardigan looks really awesome now!

Gott nytt år!

Mrs Munster; Thanks, I admit it was a bit scary to shorten it but now I'm really glad I did :)

Zizzi; Jo, det tycks vara nån förkylning i farten...

Ina; Thank you! :D

Jättefin kofta, ser mysig och varm ut så här i vinterkylan =) Den svarta koftan blev väldigt mycket mer smickrande! Jag prövade också Caseys tutorial, och kommer absolut korta och ta in stickade tröjor igen, men anpassa lite mer (korta mer i ryggen än fram).
Även om en lugn jul och nyår låter bra på sitt sätt, så hoppas jag mr Kitten kryar på sig!
Kram!

Erika; Tack, jo, att kunna ändra om stickade plagg är inte så dumt, blir nog fler om-ändringar gjorda här också. Bara jag hittar nåt trevligt att ändra på! Mr Kitten är redan lite piggare, vi ska hoppas han blir frisk igen snart, och att vi andra undgår att få samma smitta. :) Kram!
