Når jeg nu var gået i gang med de lidt skørere indfald, så kunne jeg jo lige så godt fortsætte. Jeg fik i hvert fald en idé, jeg var nødt til at afprøve…

Første udfordring var at finde et passende mønster. Efter noget søgning fandt jeg ud af, at på trods af Ravelry’s fortræffeligheder, så ligger opskriftsdatabasen ikke inde med en strikkeopskrift på et figenblad… Heldigvis kunne jeg finde masser af billeder på Google, så jeg gik i gang med at kreere min egen version… kan I se, hvor det bærer hen?

Now that I already had started following some of my more quirky notions, I might as well continue. I got an idea this week that just was too good to keep away from, I just had to test if I could make it work…

The first challenge was finding a suitable pattern. After some searching, I found out that though Ravelry is magnificent, it didn’t have a pattern for a knitted fig leaf in its database… Luckily I found lots of pictures at Google, so I set out to make my own version… can you see where this is leading?

Frøkenen her står i Gladsaxe, nærmere betegnet i haven ved rådhuset. Nu har hun så fået en “beklædning” af en slags. Fakta: egen opskrift (skal nok skrive den ned), 17 g. Malabrigo worsted i emerald green, pinde 4½mm.

This miss is standing in Gladsaxe, more accurately in the garden near the town hall. Now she’s been equipped with a “garment” of sorts. Facts: my own pattern (which I’m writing down at the moment), 17 g. of Malabrigo worsted in emerald green, 4½mm needles.

Årsagen til, at jeg strikker de her skøre ting i Malabrigo er 1) at jeg synes farverne er skønne og 2) det er Malabrigo March Madness på Ravelry, og jeg deltager med sjæl og garnlager.

The reason for my knitting these strange items in Malabrigo is 1) that I love the colours in this yarn and 2) it is Malabrigo March Madness on Ravelry, and I’m participating with all of my soul (and my stash).
