Socks #1

So in November I didn't live at home much, because my grandparents spend the month in Spain. 
Yarn: Järbo's Raggi
Pattern: from here
Color: 1538 (dark green, light brown, dark brown, white-beige)
Grams: 150 g

The strips became a bit un even, with one row or so, but you can't really see it.

The yarn is really comfy! Love it so much that I've already started with my second pair with the same yarn! (Also stripes, but pink and purple)

The pattern description was hard to under stand when I started the heal, but it was simple before and after it :)

I'll definitely be making more of these socks! To: my family and friends: expect a pair next christmas :)

Flowery Circle skirt

I completed my first circle skirt in the beginning of January! :)
 A self drafted Circle skirt made with this tutorial! It was a great tutorial and I will do more circle skirts!
 I didn't hem it, instead I sewed with black bias tape. 
And of course I made it in real 50's style with an elastic waistband. 

I also made the skirt high waisted, and know I'm walking around with a big belt where the waist ends. 
I really love it, and I will be using it a lot, even now when it's snow outside! And I will for sure be making more circle skirts, but next time I wan't to do one with an ordinary waistband! 

Swedish Brownie Cupcake

"Swedish brownies are called ”kladdkaka” in Swedish which means stickycake. So you wonder what is the difference between regular brownies and Swedish brownies. There are two big differences sugar and baking powder. Swedish brownies have more sugar and no baking powder, which causes a more dense and sticky brownie. This brownie is hard on the outside and sticky on the inside.
Also this brownie takes about 10 minutes to whip together it makes and excellent quick dessert that tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen."

So it was an explanation about "kladdkaka" and here is why I pasted it: I've made cupcakes! This is actually the first time since school started that I don't have a weekend filed with homeworks! 

And here is the recipe in Swedish and here is it in English (I do not own the recipe):
- 2 eggs
- 2 dl sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla sugar
- 50 g butter
- 0.5 dl food oil (I used raps)
- 1 dl light syrup
- 2 dl wheat flour
- 1 dl cacao
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt

1. Put the oven on 175°C, convection oven.
2. Whip the egg and sugar.
3. Melt the butter, put in the syrup and oil. Mix. Put it in the egg-sugar, whip.
4. Mix flour, vanilla sugar, cacao, baking powder and salt.  Put it in the egg-sugar bowl. Whip.
5. Put the batter in normal big cupcake forms, 2/3 should be filled.
6. Put it in oven and wait for 20 minutes.
And don't worry, they will fall down when you take them out.

And now, I'm of to pattern making!  :)

Toga tutorial video

Well I forgot to post some of the awesome youtube-toga-tutorial videos we used when we made the togas that december day.
The only thing needed was:

  • 1 white bed-sheet
  • some security-pins
  • a belt (if you want to)
Here is the videos:

Toga and the contest that ended before it started

Yeah, the week before christmas we were supposed to have a contest with our rivalry school, but when we were supposed to enter the gym, the police said that the contest were off because of many different reasons. One of them was vandalism from both schools.

But the dresscode for our school was a toga! I didn't have one, because we don't have that kind of sheets at home, but some of my friends had and here is the pics from that day :)

Knitted "Pompom" by DropsDesign

Sorry for bad pics, but I'm using the webcam. 
Pattern: Pompom by DropsDesign
Yarn: Nepal by Drops (65% wool, 35% alpaca) 
Color: 0517 medium grey
Grams: 100

This is a really easy pattern because you only do garter st! The pattern is easy to follow, and the pattern the garter st do is really nice. 

My pompom is made of the rest of the medium grey (0517) and a bit of Nepal grey mix (0501). A really nice combination of colors! 

It looks a bit weird on the left side, 'cause I have my bangs there. 

Well I have been living in this hat since yesterday when I did the last of it (only a 2 day job). It's awesome! 

Well, well, one of my promised 12 garments is made, and this after 2 days! I do really look forward to the rest of this year! :)
