Banffbevis

Jeg lovde Banff-bilde, og siden jeg aaaaaltid holder det jeg lover, versgod:



Ser den ut til bli litt kort... hmmmm, vet ikke helt. I alle fall ser det ut for at jeg ikke fr nok garn! Poenget her var jo bruke opp mest mulig fra garnlageret, og da ender det jo vanligvis med at man m supplere en masse, ikke sant? Fra fr har jeg en litt mrkere stripe nederst p ermer og bol, nettopp p grunn av at jeg mistenkte den ene fargen for ikke strekke til. (Jeg strikker med tre trder i ulike farger.) Vil det da bli grusomt strikke verste del av forstykket i denne mrkere fargen, eller kan vi late som om det skulle vre slik? Tar gjerne mot gode forslag (helst slike som ikke innebrer opprekking!!).

For de som diskuterer mamma Astrups bakside (neida, ingenting uanstendig...):



Den er ikke motsatt som i dobbeltstrikk. Der det p forsiden blir ble "dingser", ser man p baksiden den hvite trden som blir liggende bak der man lfter masken ls av.


Finally some hard evidence of me knitting Banff. I haven't decided yet, but I might find it a little short. But the major problem is that I'm running out on one of the colours. (I'm knitting with three thin yarns held thgether.) My cunning plan was to use a lot of yarn from my stash, and what happens every time? Yes, you have to buy a lot of new yarn to get enough. I've already knitted the first few rows of the sleeves and back in a darker combination, because I was suspecting the colour in question to run out. Not this fast, however. Now I'm wondering if it woult be totally lame to knit the top of the front (abowe the ribbing?) in this darker combination, or could we pretend that that was the plan from the beginning? I'll be happy for any suggestions, especially the ones not involving ripping.

Finally I've had some questions about Mamma Astrup's behind (completely desent, really!) It is not the oposite of the front. Where you in the front have the blue pattern, you wil on the back find white loops from the slipped stitches.

Hey that's what I almost did with my Banff! I thought I would run out and so didn't lengthen Banff like I had wanted to. I did make it with the yarn that I had (after shortening the neck), but I had all kinds of backup plans. My favorite one was just what you described - doing the top of the front in another color/yarn. I can't wait to see it! Looks great so far.

Banff blir kjempefin. Gleder meg til se ferdig-bilder av den p. Jeg er her, jeg, men jeg blogger ikke s mye for tida. Har lagt inn et lite innlegg p sida mi som forklaring...
