Christmas gift along - F e b r u a r y

The February gift is Elli Stubenrauch's Tree Mittens from Vogue Knitting winter 2010.

I have looked for Vogue Knitting on several occasions, without finding it. Then I discovered that the European version is called Designer Knitting. I bought the winter issue when going by train to Oslo recently. A disappointment to be honest: I didn't like the layout (hard to tell the content from publicity) and the patterns, well I liked some, but the rest was nothing special to me. When I left the train, I forgot the magazine... But I had read through one mitten pattern I really liked, and noticed that the charts were to be found online. So there was no problem figuring out how to make these pretty Tree Mittens.


(Mittens are photographed on my favourite transportation, a "spark" (Norwegian link), or kicksled.)


Didn't check gauge properly, though... Supposed to be 23 stitches and 25 rows per 10 cm, mine was 26 and 28, so they are size (X)S, I think. But I loved the pattern, and will probably make them again in a thicker yarn.


Details:
Yarn:
White: Du Store Alpakka Tynn Alpakka held double
Blue: Mirasol Yarn Hacho
Needles: 3,5 mm

Veldig fine votter!! Jeg er enig i at bladet er litt oppskrytt, men en og annen fin oppskrift er det jo. Spennende kombinasjon av Hacho og alpakka!
Ha en fin uke!

Jeg abonnerte på 4 nummer av Designer Knitting fordi jeg trodde det var en europeisk utgave av VK: stor skuffelse! Det blir ikke flere blader på meg. Men de vottene har jeg også tenkt å strikke! Vottene dine er fine!
Er det mulig å kjøpe et VIF-luemønster av deg? Jeg avslutter en jobb som jeg har gjort sammen med en ihuga VIF-patriot, han er til og med fra Vålerenga. En lue hadde vært en flott avslutningsgave til han!

Luemønster kan lastes ned herfra: http://kunstgress-lillehammer.blogspot.com/
Jeg har også gitt bort VIF-lue til en arbeidskollega fra Vålerenga, og den falt i smak, så det kan anbefales :-)
