Still here, and new finishes too

It's been a long time, due to computer problems, but with the temperatures finally going down I just might get more active after the too hot July. I haven't been all lazy, so I can show you some projects I have finished. The newest creation is this big tote bag for groceries. It is lined with raincoat fabric so I can just wipe it clean if a yoghurt lid get perforated or some other accident happens. The floral panel is a rep weave table runner I bought years ago for this purpose at a sale for 1.50 €.
 
 
During the Tour de France watching in July I knitted this set of washcloths. The cool colour and the bamboo yarn made it feel relaxing.
 
 
Remember the Train Socks in knitted for the twins across the street before they were born (probably not!)? After I heard that the newcomers were both girls, I just couldn't send them socks in green and beige and brown and blue...these here on the left:
 
 
... but I knitted them new ones in white and yellow. As June was so very cold here, I also knitted them tiny woollen hats like the one I had given to a friend's grandchild a little earlier. These hats have a crocheted flower on the side.
 
 
The Kaffe Fasset stripe yarn socks will go to the charity project in Järvenpää. I think they will look quite nice on a bigger baby as the colours go well with the maternity package contents.
 
My newest project involves this, a baby corduroy tunic that somehow shrunk in my closet.

  1. Glad it's cooled of a bit so you can get creative again. I love the repurposed shopping tote project. You're so good at that. Lucky babies to have you as a generous knitter. I'm most excited about the corduroy. It's such a yummy color.

  2. Did you get humidity with the heat in July? We usually do and it's just awful. For some reason we've had cooler weather lately and it's been very nice.
    Love those socks and the hat (I have yet to make one) and I look forward to your newest project.

  3. Dear Ulla,
    what cute projects for the babies.
    Love your shopping bag and I am looking forward to what is going to happen with the shirt.
    Greetings,

  4. Such pretty projects. I thought the first pairs would be fine for little girls - any color but blue works for girls. No pink for boys.

    Love your shopping bag.
    Hugs

  5. Glad to see you're still there, Ulla, as I was about to send out the cavalry for you ;>)! You will be very stylish when grocery shopping and that twins will be the best dressed on the block! Can't wait to see what becomes of that luscious corduroy!
    Cheers!
