Jumpsuit

Lassi loves jumpsuits. I thought that it’d be fun to let him choose the fabric for a new one. He chose black and white cotton velour and the jumpsuit turned out pretty nicely!

Wooden Pallet Couch

I started my wooden pallet couch last summer, but never got to finish it then. Before I knew it, it was fall and raining and dark, and I knew I’d have no use for the couch during the winter months. So I stored the half-finished pallets in our garage.

A few weeks ago I decided that it’s now or never. I had spent a lot of time grinding and already painted the first coat, so all I needed was to wash the pallets again (they had sat in the rain for some time before I moved them to the garage) and then paint the second coat. I found the perfect fabric for the pillows, spent half an hour sewing them and ready it was! It turned out perfect!

Plain Tunic by Pickles

Kerttulille valmistui syyslomareissulla neulemekkonen. Tai mekko valmistui muuten sysylomalla, mutta lankojenpäättely- ja napinompeluinspistä odottelin muutaman viikon. Nyt on kuitenkin valmis.

A little dress for my baby doll. Knitting didn’t take that long, but the finishing and button sewing mojo was nowhere to be found for several weeks. But here it is, blocked and with buttons and all.

Plain tunic by PicklesKäytin Picklesin Plain Tunic -ohjetta pohjana, sovelsin sen isompaan kokoon, eri langalle ja puikkokoolle ja mekkopituiseksi. Toimii! Lankana Rowan Wool Cotton. Napit olen joskus tilannut Singaporesta.

The pattern is Plain Tunic by Pickles, but I used thinner yarn, smaller needles and made it a size larger and longer. Worked nicely. The yarn is Rowan Wool Cotton. I ordered a bunch of wooden buttons from Singapore a few months back and love them!

Meidän neidillä on niin kiire vilkkaiden veljiensä perään, että harvoin istuu paikoillaan. Muutaman sekunnin saattaa istahtaa ja sitten taas juostaan!

This little girl really doesn’t stay still. It’s proving difficult to take any good pictures of her. She sits still for 15 seconds and off she goes again!

Short-row Garter Cardigan

Tämä ei ollut nopea neule. Aloitin jo kesällä, työ kulki mukana Tanskassa lomareissulla ja eteni hissukseen. Sitten se jäi muutamaksi kuukaudeksi ihan paitsioon.

This was not a quick knit. I started knitting it last summer, did a couple of stitches here and a couple there. The the project hibernated for a month or two and was well on its way to become an UFO.

Cardigan for Kerttu

Viime viikolla kaivoin työn esille ja totesin, että jos en sitä nyt saa tehdyksi, se on Kertulle pieni jo valmistuessaan. Joten muutaman illan tahkosin sitten pienillä puikoilla lyhennettyjä kerroksia. Ja ihan suloinenhan siitä tuli!

Last week I realized that if I didn’t finish it soon, Kerttu was never going to wear it as she is growing like a weed. It took me a couple of nights of knitting with rather small needles, but was worth it. I think it turned out pretty cute!

Tube Scarves

Tuubihuivi on niin ihanan helppo huivi. Lämmittää eikä roiku tiellä. Varauduin viilenevään syksyyn muutamalla tuubilla.

You just gotta love tube scarves. Makes you warm and cosy and does not get in your way when you’re moving about.

Tube scarf

Tämä on tehty ihan vain pitkää pötköä patenttineuleena ja sitten ommeltu renkaaksi. Lankana ihanaa vanhaa Isoveljeä 200g.

Fisherman’s rib, yarn is a discontinued colorway of Novita Isoveli. My fave color.

Tube scarfJa toinen huivi vähemmän viileitä päiviä varten. Trikoosta, yhden sauman projekti.

World’s easiest sewing project, just one seam. Another tube scarf for less chilly days, stripey jersey.
