This is the way of working with thimble - it easy :) Put it on your finger, then put the yarn between plastic bulges, and then methal stick over. The yarn goes over the fingers in usual way. The problem may occur when using one color more than other.

Blue set progress

Back to knitting news :)

The blue set is growing fast, because it is so small and cute. Some days ago I've finished the trousers, knitted braces, and sewed buttons. And then I started the sweater - in pattern they suggest using circular needles, but it seems I will never get used to them. So I used ordinary, strait needles.

This red thimble for different color dividing is absolutly irreplaceable for Norwegian pattern.

And for 3 afternoons (and a couple of minutes before going to work), I managed to finish fron and back peace, and one sleeve.

I found on KnittingWisdom this great video for Three Needle bind off, and I used it here. It is great, it gives thin joint. The adress is:

A year ago... The Cat

My dear cat-lovers, It has been a year since one male cat, who lived with me and my brother (rather to say, he was forced to), miaued by the door, wishing to go outside. He was released to exit with curse, and never came back..... Looked for days, dreamed at night .... and I regreted that I have said last words to him in bad way.

If there is no these pictures, I would not remeber who he was as little being. Lively, you know yourself, as onlu the kitten can be. And it grows very fast.

I miss his soft fur, and to feel warmth from his little body .... When he put his head down, and trasforms in a ball. To put his nose under my chin. To lay on the book that I read.
A molly. And a sleep-lover. I would not be surprised if he spoke some words one morning.

When he was about 7 years old, he became a real Jack. He didn't jump on everyting moving, and looked everything in a "What's the point?" way.

That's The Cat. I don't know if he is still alive, did somebody accepted him in thier appartment, or he died somewhere from cold. I don't want to take other kitten, not because I can't cope with that, but because I believe that it will be very unhappy 8 hour a day, all alone.

Knitting last years


Here is something from last 3 years, mostly from winter 2005/06. I was very happy when I found out all those patterns and schools on the net.

First post

Hello to everyone that has bumped on this blog :)

My name is Maya, and I live in Serbia. I already have a blog, magrit.mojblog.co.yu, but since it is on Montenegrian, most of the knitters around the world don't understand the word I'm writing. So, here is an english version, about knitting, reading, walking, and sometimes .. chocolate :)
