Another reason, which also is the one Amoena hasn't really understood, is that I've been quite busy with school stuff. Well more than just quite. If I have calculated correctly, after this spring I'll be almost a year ahead of my original schedule so I can continue to master level studies already next fall. So my work really has, or will have, payed off. So whenever I've had time I wasn't doing or stressing about school stuff, I'd rather spent it with Amoena or just laying on the couch, and not blogging.
But since it was about a time to blog on something, and I had no finished projects to blog about, I decided to blog about my past projects. My top 3 most worn projects to be exact. Whenever I knit, I want to knit something that has some use. So I've usually just knitted something for Amoena to wear. That way I can easily decide on pattern and colors and stuff with her and don't really have to make any major decisions just by myself without consulting her and I can just focus on knitting. So, here we go:
These I made for Amoena about two years ago after she had lost her previous ones. I think these were my first mittens, and also the first time I made cables. Basically Amoena's been wearing either these ever since. And you can quite well see it from the mittens' condition.
This is something I made for myself. And actually it was a week before Cabled mittens, so it was quite close call that these weren't #1. The reason for that is mainly that some time ago I got a new scarf from my dad, which he had gotten from some corporation party. And it being 100% kashmir and stuff I kinda switched to it. But before that I always wore this during winters. And I still think that the pattern is superb! I really like how it looks. Only small problem is that it twists a lot. I probably should have made some kind of sturdier border for it. But at that point I couldn't tell the difference.
Only one of the socks was willing to come out of their hide.
So, these are the top 3. Though I'm still a bit uncertain about the third place. But Villasukat being my first knitted project ever, it has earned its place. The Cabled mittens will probably stay #1 since they are the only one of these still in use. Sampo will probably rise to #2 some time soon. But I have no clue about the next #3.
Finnish summary: En ole hetkeen saanut projekteja valmiiksi, pääasiassa koska teen itselleni työlästä villapaitaa, mutta koulukiireet ovat myös vieneet oman aikansa. Piti kuitenkin keksiä jotain blogattavaa, joten tässä kolme eniten käytössä kulunutta neulostani.
