1 done, 1 to go

Do I need to say more?

Nice weather in Sweden

As the title says it's nice weather in Sweden! I have been used to rain and work the last couple of weeks but today the sun shine and I was comfortable outside poolwatching my little brother when he was swimming. And of course I needed something to do...

This is the Lovika yarn that I have written about here. And as the mittens in the link, I'm going to do a new pair of those with this yarn!

Patterns from mums collection

The other day, me and my mum were watching the Swedish Ebay (Tradera). I was about to do a bid on a pattern to a dress and she said, "Well, just go and look through my stash!"

Of course I didn't find the patterns she was taking about, but I found 7 great patterns!

1. Butterick 5064 - Set of cardigan, dress, tank top, pants and a skirt! All easy patterns!
2. Butterick 5088 - 9 different versions of a hoodie! All easy patterns!
3. New Look 6167 - A jumpsuit, jacket, pants a.s.o.
4. Stil 9070 - 3/4 pants, whole pants and a sweater.
5. Burda 6956 - jumpsuit with suspenders. With pockets or without! Super-easy!
6. Stil 8974 - A jumpsuit and a knee long dress, all with singoalla arms!
7. Butterick 4787 - 5different t-shorts, sewaters or tank tops with or without collar! Easy pattern!

This is all for today my friends, now I have a couple of garments to finish, but then I'll start sewing this stuff!

Järbo Garns slippers

A couple of days ago I did a pair of slippers from Järbo! I used their own yarn called Raggi! It was easy to do and the yarn is really great to work with. Here is a link to the pattern.

BurdaStyle 3/2011 #127

Fabric: 1.2 m, Elastic Jersey 79 sek/m
Pattern: BurdaStyle 3/2011 #127
Hours: 2
Size: 38/40
I started this projekt before I went to France and I did the last five minutes of it yesterday. It was really easy but they wanted be to sew the neckline by hand, I sewed it on the machine. They did also wan me to do the hems pon the sleeves by hand, but I decided to just do some zigzag, because I'm going to fold the sleeves anyway. 
I did decide to start using points on everything I make, from now (going to explain it later). And thi is the points:
Pattern: 1
Cost: 1
So, I have 3 points after one project!

And at last I just wanted to say that I recomend the fabric and the pattern, both of them were easy to work with. 

I also wanted to say what my sister sad when she saw the jersey: "Where did you buy that? I want one!"
