Round pot holders and chrochet shopping bag.

Litt håndarbeid fra den siste tiden, av varierende resultat.

Jeg har hatt lyst til å hekle runde grytekluter etter å ha sett bilder av noen skikkelig fine eksemplarer.
Nå har jeg heklet et enkelt forsøkspar. Jeg hadde ikke oppskrift, så jeg har brukt prøve-og-feile-metoden.
Det ble en god del plunder i begynnelsen, men til slutt klarte jeg å lage et (ikke særlig pent) par som ble både runde og flate. (:-D)

A little crochet and knitting done lately, successes and failures.

After seing photos of some lovely round potholders, I wanted to try crocheting some.
Now I have finished a simple test pair. I did not have a pattern, so I used the methode of trying and failing.
There was a lot off of fuzz at first, but in the end I managed to crochet a  (not so pretty) pair that is both flat and round. (:-D)


De er heklet i dobbelt bomullsgarn, åtte runder pluss liten blondekant.
Jeg slapp opp for rosa garn underveis, så de ble ikke helt like... og i tillegg ble den ene litt større enn den andre, men de går fint å bruke likevel.
Jeg synes selv det ble en viss fremgang fra gryteklut nr 1 til gryteklut nr 2, så nå satser jeg på at neste par blir bedre, og også helt like :)

They were crocheted in double cotton yarn, eight rounds plus a round of lace at the edge.
I run out of pink yarn for the second pot holder, so the pair is not alike... and also one pot holder turned out a little larger than the other, but they will serve their purpose nevertheless.
I do see a certain progress from pot holder no 1 to pot holder no 2, so now I have a hope that the next pair will turn out better, and completely alike :)



Jeg har også heklet et handlenett i bomullsgarn, som ble ganske bra.
Det strekker seg godt, så det har plass til mer enn det ser ut til.
Jeg skal hekle flere etterhvert. Flerbruksnett hjelper til med å minske bruken av plastposer og plastbager.

I also have crocheted a shopping bag, which I think turned out ok.
The bag is stretchy, so there is room for much more in there that it looks like.
I have decided to make more of these eventually, as reusable shopping bags can help keep the use of plastic bags to a minimum.

Så roligt! Smart idé med shopingpåsar. Jag har några stickade trasor i bomull, de funkar ju jättebra och är dessutom fina! Jag har haft handarbets-uppbehåll under hösten och julen, men nu har jag påbörjat ett nytt projekt - en filt till vårt nya vardagsrum! Det lär ju ta ett tag innan den är klar...
Ha en fin dag :)

The potholders are so lovely - they do not have to match - why do they have to match? :-)
I imagine you sitting in the warm room, maybe near the fire, with the snow and the cold outside, knitting and crocheting - a nice picture!
Have a good Sunday Hilde!

They look good. What size needle did you use to cast on your stitches for the dish cloths and did you use cotton or knitting wood? I am such a tight knitter I may have to go up a size as well.

I absolutely adore the bag and the potholders are pretty cool too.

Hilde said...

So nice you all stoped by, and thanks for your lovely comments :)

Datacreata: For the dishcloths I use ordinary cotton yarn, and either needles 5,5 or 6 :)

Så flink du er! Det er lurt å prøve og feile litt på egen hånd, lærer mye av det :-)

Utrolig hva man kan lage med hekling. Imponerende handlenett! :-)

Ha en kjempefin tirsdag! :-)
