Ölduteppi

I have my first finish for 2013!
I started this blanket for my daughter, Karítas, on August 28th last year and finished it January 6th. So basically it is a 2012 almostfinish.

This is my first real crochet finish. I mean, something bigger than just swatches or small-ish item like a shawl. I really enjoyed making this, it is simple yet interesting. And I do love the finished piece and Karítas is absolutely thrilled with it.

The blanket for Karítas is finished! #crochet #blanket #finished #happydance #white #pink #brown #gray
Name: Wave blanket
Pattern from: Þóra heklbók
Needle: 4mm
Yarn: Trysil Superwash wool in pinke, grey, brown and off-white
Skeins used: 29,4
Weighs: 1470 gramms
Width: About 120cm
Length: About 200cm

The set-up of how I changed the colors was inspired by Lucy from Attic24. I love this set-up. It is not too cluttered, yet keeps it interesting. Lucy’s blanket is amazing, and much more colorful than mine. One day I might do another one with more colors than the four I choose this time. I see one in rainbow, or a red/pink/purple theme.

Karítas super happy and warm with her new #crochet #blanket

She was so happy to snuggle up in her bed last night with her blanket. And I was super happy to be able to wrap her up in it as she went to bed.

And now, Sumarrós wants a blanket also, off course! We haven’t picked a design, or yarn, or colors, or anything as of yet. But we are going to brainstorm over the weekend and check out some designs and see what she has in mind, and what I am up for doing! Now I am focusing on my Vintage Crochet Throw & Afghan. The picture below was taken when I had 3 color sequences done, but I am on my 7th color sequence today. I want to get it finished soon-ish as it is meant as a gift for a special someone.

  1. Yndislegt teppi og það á seinni myndinni alveg æðislegir litir.
    Skemmtilegt að dottir þin heitir Sumarrós, er það úr fjölskyldunni. Amma mannsins míns heitir Sumarrós eða Pálhildur Sumarós og ég hélt að hún væri sú eina með það nafn.

    • Takk fyrir, Inger.

      Sumarrósar nafnið er úr fjölskyldunni, já. Systir langömmu minnar hét þessu nafni og hún lést þegar ég var ófrísk af dóttur minni. Hún var þó alltaf kölluð Rósa og er móðir mín nefnd í höfuðið á henni.

      Samkvæmt hagstofu eru 15 sem bera nafnið sem 1.eiginnafn og 10 sem bera nafnið sem annað eiginnafn. Gaman að þessu🙂

  2. What a wonderful blanket, well done!

  3. Æðislegt þetta teppi! Til lukku með það🙂

  4. Great color choices in both blankets! Love.

  5. Töff teppi langar að prófa að gera þetta teppi en þarf að æfa heklið betur. er þetta ekki fínt verkefni í það hehe.
