I want a perfectly striped Klaralund. I’m going to have a perfectly striped Klaralund. I am so close to finishing.
I have managed to duplicate my original irregularly striped sleeve. Now the only issue is that red at the top. I’ve run out of the red-to-pink part of the yarn that tops the first completed sleeve. Soo, realizing I have tons of purple parts of the yarn, I’m going to finish sleeve 2 with purple and then rip back sleeve 1 and complete the match. I met Annie Modesitt! She is so funny! And oh my god she is the fastest knitter ever! I wish I bought her book when I saw her, but I was not paying in quarters. I’ll paypal buy one later on. I don’t think I was part of the class, I just followed along, it was fun! Ina is super nice (and had perfect tensioned knitting unlike me), and posted about it and a picture
. (I am totally unphotogenic in pictures not taken by me. So to make up for that picture, here are a whole ton of mee pictures
.) Also notice the Kureyon scarf, specifically, Forsa from the book Klaralund is in. I love it. It does not match my outfit, I wove in ends and put it on. Proper picture and matching clothing later on. Trailer homey and I have the hottest phones ever.

I bought the stuff to make Klaralund out of Kureyon color 170. The color is such a let down. I don’t like rainbows. (Though it’s not a true rainbow, it exudes ugly rainbowness.) I’m on the sleeve. It may be ugly colored, but the least I could do is make all my stripes match. It took many, many joins of yarn, but I think it worked well. Let’s hope I can get sleeve #2 will match the first.
Yesterday I started the Norwegian Stockings from Folk Socks
. I’m using Dale Baby Ull in a chartruese, off white and a decently bright pink. It’s darker than the picture looks though. Fun knitting.
Following the Norwegian theme, I ordered a hat kit, Flenten
. I won’t wear it though. It’s just something to knit. I chose color 7032 and an offwhite.
