I have a bad feeling about this

We're looking forwards to Star Wars Episode VII. 
In the meantime, how about a new hat?
The pattern is The Force Awakens Hat
a free download from Hannah L's Ravelry store.

I chose to change the words. 
Feel free to borrow it!

May the Force be with you!

Buachaille vest and knotted steek!

When Kate Davies launched her new yarn Buachaille, I was too curious not to join the Sevenskeinsclub to get hold of the loveliness. The club also gives you several patterns for small accessories, but I wanted to fit all the colours into one garment, so I opted for a vest. An am quite happy with the result.

The yarn is soft and the colours play well together, I think. I still have some left, there might be a hat or mitts, or a cowl - we'll see. 

I tried a new steeking technique for the vest, the knotted steek, as explained by Tomofholland. The weaving in of ends took forever, but I still think it was a good choice for the yarn. I also did a latvian braid instead of a ribbing at the neck opening and the armholes. 

The Sevenskeinsclub is sold out, but the yarn will be available for sale in January. I have also seen somewhere that there will be three more colours! Wonder what they might be... I would love some golden yellow, some purple, and mayby brown.

Hurramegrundt! - Baby blanket - now in English

I'm not sure how to translate the name of this blanket. 
But it's s fun knit, where you can use your stash yarn mix all the colours you want. 

I've had some amazing test knitters help me, Vatkugle, bedofroses, besto and eloja22

Thanks again, super knitters!

The pattern is now avaiable both in English and Norwegian.

Whose is the knitting heritage?

Who has the right to use our traditional patterns? Is it the yarn industry, or is it our common heritage that we can all use?
One of our talented Norwegian designers had to settle with a large yarn company that demanded exclusive rights to over 100 years old knitting patterns. Me and some other indie designers are making patterns in solidarity with her, offering new patterns that are inspired by traditional Norwegian patterns.
My contribution is the hat Marjusmonster. It has now been translated to English, so feel free to dowload it from Ravelry. 

The hat is worked in Rauma Mitu, in red, white and blue. I needed a little more than one skein of the blue colour, so if you work the striped garter stitch brim in only red and white, you can perhaps do with only one skein of each color. You don’t need more than about 25-30 g of the red and white.

The pattern is not test knitted, so if you encounter anything strange, please tell me.
