Meet Kilmeny

Hi,
I read L.M Montgomery's book Kilmeny of the Orchard few weeks ago and I really liked the story. It'a about a mute girl called Kilmeny and how she fell in love. I really enjoy reading romantic stuff.
So I bought few months ago an issue of Simply Knitting with Alan Dart's pattern: Tails of Yore and I knitted the princess and I decided to name her Kilmeny.

Knitted with/neulottu: Kokon
Needles/puikot: 3mm
Pattern/Ohje: Alan Dart's Tails of Yore

Luin pari viikkoa sitten L.M. Montgomeryn kirja Kilmeny of the Orchars ja pidin siitä paljon. Kirja kertoo mykästä tytöstä, jonka nimi oli Kilmeny ja siitä kuinka hän rakastui.
Muutama kuukausi sitten olin ostanut Simply Knitting numeron Alan Dartin hiiriohjeella ja tein sieltä prinsessan ja päätin antaa sille nimeksi Kilmeny.

New Villagers/Uusia asukkeja

Hi,
here are the picutures as I promised. First this is Micah: My friend asked me if I could knit a monkey to her nephew. So I made one. Monkies are quite easy to make, probably next time I make a little different face.
And this is little Beatrix:
I crocheted her while our family was driving to a party. It took probaly one hour to crochet the part and half our to put all the piecies together. And thanks for Sophie for the great pattern.

Tällaiset uudet asukit ovat saapuneet Mint Villageen. Eräs ystäväni pyysi, että tekisin hänen veljenpojalleen apinan ja niinpä sitten sain Miikan aikaiseksi. Seuraavalla kerralla voisin vielä vähän muokata naamaa. En ole ihan vielä tyytyväinen.
Beatrixin tein automatkalla juhliin. Projekti oli sen verran pieni, että yhteensä aikaa meni vain n. 1.5 tuntia. Kiitokset Sophielle kivasta ohjeesta.

Hugs!

Lazy summer days

Hi,
Summer is just the greatest time in the year (probably), when the weather is good. Past few days have been a bit rainy, so I've had time to knit and read. And suprisingly study to next autumn's matricular examen. I'm glad that after one year my high school is over (I just realised that I'm a senior). Even thoguh studying English and math is quite boring sometimes.
I don't have the camera around, so I can't share photos of my finished projects. But when I find batteries to camera, I'll take those photos.

Until that, happy summer!
