*Gina Giraffe (free pattern)*

Image
May I introduce you, the next member of the Mint Village, this is Gina Giraffe. The very best frien of Zackie Zebra. I finally got my pattern ready, or actually I designed this giraffe before Xmas, but I didn´t get photos of the finished toy, so I couldn´t publish the pattern. And when I was knitting my Giraffe, I run out of yellow yarn so I had to use other yarn I found in my stash. If I had had more yarn, I would have designed the ears, but now I have to make them from felt.
This is maybe a bit more difficult than my earlier patterns, because I used DPNs instead of "normal needles" and I used to colours. I´ve never designed a chart in my life, so I hope you understand it. If there are any problems, I´m glad to hear of them. Happy knitting for all of you!

Lopultakin sain tämän kirahvin ohjeen julkaisukuntoon ja tuotua tänne blogosfääriin. Ohjeen mä suunnitelin jo ennen joulua, mutta koska se kirahvi meni lahjaksi serkulle, en kerennyt saada hyviä kuvia. Vielä lisäksi multa lo…

Spring is coming!

Hi everyone!
I´m sorry that I haven´t been posting lately. I was in Åre (in Sweden) skiing centre with my friends for a week and came home couple of days ago. I didn´t have camera with me, only my cell phone, so I can´t share pictures I took from there. I´ve never done downhill skiing in my life and I can assure you that I looks easier than it really is!
Here in Finland spring is coming really fast, it´s warm and sunny! There are already some flowers here in our backyard.
I hope I get my new pattern ready in this weekend and I hope I get published it here soon!
I knitted few toys during the easter and my visit in Åre.


Eipä ole tullut postattua parin viikkoon. Olin kavereiden kanssa Åressa laskettelemassa viikon ja tulin kotiin pari päivää sitten. Kameraa mulla ei ollut kun kännyssä, muuten lataisin muutaman kivan luontokuvan tänne. Ennen ole ikinä ennen elämässäni lasketellut ja voin sanoa, että laskettelu näyttää paljon helpommalta, mitä se oikeasti on. Mä laskin ekat päivät pelkistä sini…

Some sewing

Image
Hello,
finally I was able to do some sewing and I made a little doll from a pattern I found online.
This is Rebecca, I named after a charachter I saw in the movie called The Outsider.
Tällaisen nuken sain aikaan koeviikon jälkeen. Mekkokangas on Eurokankaasta ja ihonväri kangas on virallista Tilda-puuvillaa. Nuken nimeksi tuli Rebecca, erään länkkärin päähenkilön mukaan, jonka näin joskus. Esikuvalla on tosin vaalea tukka.
