Indimellem al legen med symaskinen er der faktisk også blevet strikket. Mest efter MM’s sengetid, for ikke at forstyrre ham med larmen fra symaskinen (hmmm, her er vist endnu en grund til at ønske sig en ny maskine – en der larmer mindre). Jeg er blevet færdig med baby versionen af det store Six’es tæppe, og selvom kanten kun var halvt så lang, så var der alligevel rigeligt med masker til at fylde ganske mange timer ud med.

In between the play sessions with the sewing machine, I actually have managed to knit a bit. Mostly it has happened after MM has been put to bed, as to not to disturb him with the noise from the sewing machine (hmmm, I think I see another argument for wishing for a new machine – one, which is more silent). I have finished the baby version of the great Six’es afghan, and even though the edge was only half the lenght on this small version, there still were more than enough stitches to keep me occupied for a good number of hours.

  • Baby Six’es (Ravelry project page)
  • Mønster/Pattern: Six’es  by Lykkefanten (Ravelry link)
  • Garn/Yarn: Diverse strømpegarner i blå og grønne farver, i alt 374 g / Random sock yarns in blues and greens, a total of 374 g
  • Pinde/Needles: 3mm for sekskanter og retstrikket kant, 3.25mm for hestetømmeaflukningen / 3mm for the hexagons and the garter stitch border, 3.25 for the i-cord bind off
  • Mål/Measurements: 74 x 96 cm / 29 x 38 inches

En af de ting, der gør mig rigtig glad, når jeg ser på det færdige tæppe, er den gavmildhed, som ligger i det. Da jeg bad om hjælp til at få små rester strømpegarn i blå og grønne farver, var der flere, der bød ind med donationer (ingen nævnt, ingen glemt), og jeg er utrolig taknemmelig og glad for hver venlig tanke og lille nøgle garn. Tæppet er helt perfekt, takket være jer!

One of the things that make me really happy, whenever I look at the finished blanket, is the generosity, which is embedded in it. When I asked for donations of little left-overs of sock yarn in blues and greens, several offered to help (none mentioned, none forgotten), and I am incredibly grateful and glad for every friendly thought and every little bit of yarn. The blanket is perfect, thanks to you!
