As always, it takes two to tango-swango-swap. Here's what I sent out to Olebrumm. I managed to get it ready just in time for the knitting retreat, so I took it there and a kind friend helped me to deliver it to the victim.Pakkaamiseen ompelin kangaskorin. Meni vähän soveltamiseksi, mutta kyllä se kasassa pysyy.
I sewed a basket for the items. I had to improvize a bit, but I guess it manages to do what it is supposed to do.
Into the basket went an even number of fingerless mitts. I used Cascade Venezia Worsted (I love that yarn!). I made up the pattern as I went along. Neat stockinette stitch with a textured cuff.
Olebrumm said she likes greens and pinks and wished for practical items and that gave me the idea to sew a small pouch for her.
I also found a way to combine practicality, pink and green with our group's banner (it has a Chicken Run theme). This little needle pillow is made out of wool/polyester blend felt, cotton threads and white beads and it is stuffed with wool.Parhialalta (sain paketin annettua jo parin päivän kuluttua jauhatuksesta, ja kun otin kahvin pakastimesta retriittiin lähtiessäni, se tuoksui aivan huumaavalta).
And here's the famiy portrait. I paired the sprout pouch up with Wollmeise's Zarte Knospe yarn (z.k. means tender bud or sprout, I am told) and added two things to drink: A white chocolate spoon to turn hot milk into ... well, chocolate milk, and some organic dark-roast coffee. It was ground only two days before I gave it away, so it smelled fresh and delicious.
I loved this round. I truly enjoyed planning this package and I am thrilled for all the lovely things I got. Thanks, honeys!
