Finished.

Jeg har så smått gått igang med å rydde litt i garnlageret mitt. 
Jeg har både plantefarget ullgarn, bomullsgarn og en god del kjøpegarn som er lagret forskjellige steder. Nå tenker jeg å etterhvert få gått gjennom alt for å få litt bedre orden og oversikt.
 Under ryddingen har jeg også kommet over diverse halvferdige prosjekter som er under arbeid, og det var ganske mange av dem... Noen er nesten ferdige, de trengs bare å avsluttes og det skal jeg prøve å få gjort utover høsten. 


I have started going through and tidying a little in my yarn stash.
I have several types of yarn; some plant dyed wool, some cotton and also some store bought yarn, stored away in different places. Now I intend to go through it all and tidy and organize.
While tidying I have found several works in progress that needs to be finished. A few of them only need very little work to be finished, so my goal is to finish them (or hopefully most of them) in autumn.



Bl.a fant jeg disse vinveskene som jeg strikket for litt siden. De er av strikket av plantefarget garn, den gule farget med reinfann og den oransje med krapprot. 
Den ene vinvesken var helt ferdig uten pynt, og den andre var ferdig strikket men ikke tovet. Nå er den tovet, og jeg har sydd heklede blomster som pynt på begge. Hekleblomstene (som også dukket opp under ryddingen) har fått en liten perle av svart onyx på seg.
De ferdige vinveskene havner i julegavelageret :)

Og dag har det vært høstjevndøg. Døgnet har vært i balanse, og dag og natt har vært like lange over hele jorden.
Nå går vi inn i den mørke årstiden, og fra nå av blir dagene kortere og nettene lengre frem til midtvinter.


Two of the WIPs that I found were these wine bags that I knitted a little while ago. Both were knitted from plant dyed yarn, the yellow was dyed with tansy and the redish with madder root.
One wine bag was already felted, the other one was knitted but not felted. So I threw it in the washing mashine to felt it, and then sewed on a crochet flower as decoration on both winebags. The crochet flowers (found during tidying too) got a small black onyx bead in the center.
The finished wine bags go into the Christmas gift stock :)

And it was the Autumnal Equinox today. A day of ballance, when the day and night were of equal length all over the earth.
Now we enter the dark season, and from now on the days will be shorter and the night longer untill Midwinter.

Lovely things, are they easy to knit?

I knitted a wine bottle bag for my friend Sally at Lavender Attic early this year. I just made the pattern up but I left it knitted, I love your felted ones!

Så otroligt söta vinväskor! Jag borde också gå igenom mina garnförråd, men vet vad som döljer sej där...
Hoppas du också hade en fin höstdagjämning! :)

Those are really pretty and are a perfect christmas gift! It´s a good feeling, going through your stash and finishing old projects that have been lying around... one really should do that more often!

Hilde said...

Thank you, Samantha :)

Datacreata, the start is the most difficult, but apart from that they are very easy to knit. I'll translate the pattern for you if you want :)

Thank you, Anne :) I guess your wine bottle bag turned out beautifully!

Det hadde jeg, Emelie :) Takk for hyggelig kommentar!

Thanks Kristin, I too think they are nice gifts with f.ex a bottle of wine or a bottle of home made cordial :) I'm still working on going through my yarn stash, taking little by little, and it definately will be good to finally finish some of those old stored away projects :)

Hi,Hilde!
Those wine bags dyed with natural plants are very pretty! The crochet flowers perfectly give colors on them. The wine bottles must be feeling comfortable,Hilde.

Dette er de flotteste vinveskene jeg har sett. Du er kjempekreativ og flink.
Det morsomme med mange parallelle prosjekter er at mye kan bli ferdig samtidig :-)

Your wine bags are beautiful!

Hilde said...

Thank you Tomoko and Mac :)

Takk for hyggelige ord, Eldbjørg :) Og helt enig, morsomt å få flere ting ferdig på en gang.
