Ep. 13 – The one in front of the Christmas tree


I´m wearing the Løvfallgenser by Strikkelisa. This pattern is so far only in Norwegian. I knitted a size XL and it worked wonders with my firm knitting style. I´ve used slaughter-free yarn from Izzy Lane for this project and I loved it! I will be knitting more items with this yarn! For this project I used the colourway natural grey.

I´m working on:

Bellatrix cowl by Heidi Braacx using yarn from her store which you can find at veganyarn.com.

A pair of legwarmers called Mirry Dancers by Gudrun Johnston. I´m using yarn from a finnish hand dyer (Lanitium Ex Machina)

My last knitted work in progress is Gaïa by Marie Adeline Boyer. It´s a shawl pattern, but I´m gifting it as a baby blanket once it´s done. I´m using Malsen og Mor Shetland soft in the colourway skog for this project.

I also talked about my latest spinning project. I got a hold of washed fleece from Scruffydogyarn on Etsy, and I´m having a lot of fun with it! This wool comes from a pet sheep that will not end up as someone´s dinner. I have a big bag of this wool, so stay tuned to see what it will become!

I´m also raving about my beautiful bag from Busy Pottering on Etsy.

I also drew the last 4 winners of the 2017 gift making KAL. So if you participated with projects and/or chatter, you should have a look at this episode.

I´ve started a reading challenge and I´m continuing with the gift making KAL. Every craft can join, as long as you are making gifts. Go to the group on Ravelry to find out more!

  1. Hi Lena,
    your new episode came just in time. I lost my knitting mojo for severel months but just now I found it back so it was great to sit and knit and watch your episode 🙂
    Love to see your vegan-wool projects! And I your soycandle making in the end was great!
    Oh, green is also a neutral color for me. Just like yellow and red 🙂
