Strokkur

January 31, 2010

With the kids all sick in  the beginning of last week, and me feeling under the weather at the end of the week……..pretty much nothing got done.  I didn´t finish knitting up the hat and writing down the pattern, I wanted to have it done and ready by the middle of last week.  Oh well, things happen.

I did take the day to finish up the hat, when I was almost done something looked a little off.  Well yeah, my gauge was………way off!!!  I wasn´t using the right size needle………oh boy!  So, I had to rip it all up……good times!  It´s going to get done this week though, and that´s that!

To day was a beautiful, cold and crisp day in NYC.  Perfect day for a walk in the park.  And that´s just what my kids and I did…….and they found plenty to look at and explore during our walk.

This is their favorite tree in the park.  They have to climb it every time we go there. 

I took the opportunity to take pictures of Strokkur, a pattern I have been working on.  It can be worn around the neck only, like a cowl, or  pulled up over the ears, to keep them warm and cozy, or all the way up like a hood. 

The pattern is simple and quick to knit, but it has enough going on to keep it interesting.  I chose yarn for this project that I have had for a while and not yet tried.  It turned out great and was lovely to knit with.

      Þetta er Tove sem Þú sendir mér, ég er með eina dokku í gulu líka. Mjög gott að prjóna úr því, og mér finnst liturinn svo flottur og fer henni mjög vel.
