Ručni rad i pecanje

U par navrata sam pisala o mogućnostima primene pecaroške opreme u ručnom radu. Evo još jednog posta na tu temu, o tome kako sam se opremila u prodavnici Formax u Novom Sadu.

Osim futrole za plovke podesive dužine, koja je kao stvorena za držanje ravnih igala

i brojača (tzv. klikera), koji se inače koristi za prebrojavanje riba u jatima, putnika u avionu, učenika na ekskurziji i sl, a zgodno dođe kao brojač redova,

tu su i kutije raznih veličina i podesivih pregrada po povoljnim cenama

kao i samolepljive oči raznih veličina koje mogu biti zgodne za izradu amigurumija i drugih igračaka.

Naravno, imaju i najlon (ili, kako to u nekim krajevima zovu, silk) raznih debljina i boja, potreban za izradu nakita, ali i mnogo toga drugog čija prava namena tek čeka da bude otkrivena :)

Prodavnica Formax se nalazi u Novom Sadu, Beogradski kej 13, a ljubazni prodavci će vam pružiti svu potrebnu pomoć.

2011 in projects

It's that time of year again and everyone is posting about their New Year knitting resolutions. I'm not making any this year because last year's was a comlete failure. The only thing I did is knit some socks and some soft, warm gloves (come to think of it, too warm, considering the temperatures we've had so far this winter). I could blame it on life getting into way and bad things that happened in the family but I'm not going to do that. I'll keep these goals for next year, hoping it will be better than the last. And that's what I wish to all of you.

After 22 scarves in 2010, I managed to keep it under control and make only 8 in 2011!

This year's hit seem to have been mittens, 8 pairs altogether:

I'm also proud of my 5 sweaters/cardigans/vests (one of which is in child size, true!) but I'm not proud of the fact that I have photos of only 3 of them:

2011 also saw my first pair of socks, followed by two more, one for my husband and one more for myself:

Together with 2 hats, 2 phone cozies, a baby blankie and a table runner edging, it totals 30 projects. Not bad, considering what a difficult year it was.

I also contributed 9 squares to a collaborative project in Serbia group over on Ravelry, the result of which is a beautiful blanket (you can see it here).

Another collaborative project that began in 2011 is NS Needles' first knit-along. It started quite unexpectedly, one lazy evening over a glass of sangria, while pckristina and I were musing over possible projects for the yarns we got as presents from a friend.
