Just another pillow.....

Some years ago I bought the book "Great American Aran Afghan" also
called GAAA, and with big enthusiasm

I started to knit the first blocks of the 24 different ones in this
beautiful afghan..

After 5 blocks I gave it up, it was too much
work, and the blocks were getting more and more difficult,
so I sold the book and put the project away.....

 The blocks just showed up again while
I was unpacking another box in the attic
I saw four of the blocks together, and with big brother's
old jeans as backing,

It is now our new pillow!

I am enjoying the dark autumn evenings in my corner,
 enjoying my favorite cup of tea and knitting socks for the
 toodlers while the rain is tromming on the windows...

Have a nice evening and thanks for stopping by!

FIGGJO turi - design UPDATE!

Earlier this year, I wrote about my Figgjo collection,

and I could not decide which one to collect,

Lotte or Market by "Turi-design"...

As you can see here, I decided on "Lotte" 

I love the simplicity of the form and intricacy
of the silkscreened line drawing..

The color palette of blue, violet and olive green on
white background is quite unique as well
I am still adding on to my "Lotte" collection ..

I have crochet fingerless mitts for my little princess ,

 I did not have any pattern,

but had seen some similar pictured in a magazine.
I used Drops alpacca wool and needle nr. 3,5.

I am very pleased with the way they turned out,
and so is my princess!

If you like to order some for a princess in your life,
I sell them in my epla store...

Have a good week and thanks for stopping by!
