Finishing a old project

I found a project that I started several years ago but never finished. Somehow it never came to an end. I just couldn't do it. Now however, I feel the urge to finish it. I am really in mood so to say. 
So I have started crocheting  the squares together. It is supposed to be a blanket when it's finished.

I call it VITSIPPA, which means Wood anemone in Swedish.

A few new patterns!

I translated a few new patterns to Swedish from my distributor of patternsbooks in English and Icelandic.
Look in my webshop for patterns :www.islina.se/en

A few of them I would really like to knit myself.

This cosy sweater for example:


Then we have this sweater, which I like:

The sweater for guys is also translated. A real wiking sweater.


This week I am working with patterns only. So there will be a lot done finally.
Next week it is back to reality, which is 100% studies and 50 % work as a teacher in addition to work with my webshop. I have a lot going on, that is for sure.
I need to study for one more year, then I Think I am finished. I hope so.

Mouse slippers for 8 year old

I crocheted these slippers 1 month ago but I never put out a picture of them. They were for my new boyfriends' daughter. She is 8 years old.
She liked them :) She is running around in them in the morning sometimes. This is how they look before you put them in the washing machine to get a more felted feeling:

At the moment I don't do much related to knitting. I just knit now and then since I have too much work at the school for adults and at the same time my studies takes a lot of time (50% distance studies)

 I really long for the time when I can sit and design patterns again and knit after them. I will be finished with my studies in 1 year and 3 months. Time goes really slow. After that I will finally have the evening free. No more reading in the course books, just knit and smile :)

I have knitted a pair of socks for a 10 year old

Pew, I think it is lovely that December is over. I had too much going on. It was too much work. I hardly could make it.  But I did.
This year - the year 2014 will the best year in my life. :)
I have found the love of my love and love him so unbelievable much (the same goes for him :) ) And I have also found myself and feel good about myself. 

Anyway, I knitted a pair of wool socks for my darlings' son, who is 10 years old. They look like this:




I used my own pattern for sale of course, which is RAGGARE and can be found in my webshop www.islina.se/en

Next thing to do is a sweater for a dog but I am also making slippers for my darlings' daughter too. Mouse slippers. She is 8 years old.

It goes slowly forward since I do not have so much time. But when I knit I enjoy it. It is relaxing sometimes in this stressful time I'm living in.
