Four new patterns are available in my pattern store, this time patterns for adults. Seems like my sweater mojo is back, too. More about the big garments later. I still enjoy those tiny projects. Today, Roots:

I like garter stitch, but while creating Angle, I fell in love with the fat cousin of his. And inviting some short rows to play along made it all even better. Roots was a really fun design project. I learned a lot about grafting - I love learning new things! It somehow opened up a whole new world for me. I think that needs to be explored in more detail sometime.

The buttons was my grandma's. There were only 5 purple buttons in the stash, and that pink one begged to come with them.

I like wearing Roots. Those wrist warmers have been with me almost constantly since I finished them, as I find wearing wrist warmers great for keeping warm. A necessity in Norway this time of year. The neck warmer has a good shape for embracing the neck without being too tight, and I like how it looks. And even though I'm more a scarf kind of girl, I'll work on it to get to wear this one.

Kjempefint! Du lager så mye flott, så jeg vurderer å kjøpe noen mønster av deg, men må bli ferdig med noe først.
Den rosa knappen ble jo prikken over osv;)
Ha en fin kveld og klem;)
