UllaS  Mother of three plus cat, granny of two. This is my diary for knitting, crocheting and lately also sewing.

Babysocks warming the feet of my 10 months old granddaughter ❤

My first toe-ups two-at-a-time 😍 After watching the @villapesuohjelma podcast there were no problems, the instructions are great. And I love my yarn #louhittarenluolaväinämöinen in colourway Kekäle. My brand new ferrari red needles are 2.25

Tiny socks for someone to be born soon. They only weigh 28g 💙 #babysocks #junasukat #sandnesgarn #alpakkamini

Riikka socks made of 64g Lanitium sock yarn turned out lovely. Photoshoot with the cat.

Exploring local and Nordic yarn at Snurre with a colleague. Some serious shopping took place in the lovely yarn store, and skeins of #lounittarenluola and #sandnesgarn are on the way to California. True knitters have found each other 💙

My first Riikka sock is on the needles. I was afraid that the lovely lace would disappear in the Hades colourway of Lanitium ex Machina's sock yarn, but it looks good. Nice and easy pattern and a new way to make the heel. I'm using needles no 2.5 because they are the smallest I have.

Great weekend dyeing yarn with plants 💚💛 All the colours go so well together and I see a striped sweater here.

Bergen holidays continue with fjordcruising, hiking up and down mount Floyen, local animals, yarn shopping and knit graffity. Great place and of course, great food💙

On a non-knitting holiday, hiking 13km from mount Ulriken to mount Floyen in these breathtaking views. There was also wool to be found, attached to sheep.

I was not going to cast on anything new before the lupine cardigan is finished, or at least grown a bit bigger... but here we go. A little girl is in need of wool pants in not very near future but rather in November, but I was inspired and they are on the needles. The pattern is Nellie by Drops, k2 p2, size 3-4y and I'm using leftover Venla yarn.

Blending in with my garden 💚 The Anaashah sweater is adorable, as are my gladiolus. Thank you @kassakerhopompom for smooth delivery of one more skein needed to finish the sweater. It is hard to capture the true salvia green colour of the yarn with the camera - you just have to imagine it more green than in the pictures.
