Misslyckat projekt

 


Det här blev ingen tröja. Så här lång kommen uppdagas att raglanmaskan för ena ärmen saknas. Första tanken är att försöka rädda projektet men det är förstås omöjligt. Tillsammans med raglanmaskan saknas ju ökningar på var sida. Alltså kommer det att fattas massa maskor i slutändan. Nu har garnet återgått till garnnystan och det är väl bara att glädjas åt att detta inte blir något som hamnar i lagret för färdigstickat än på ett tag. Det lär dröja ett tag innan det här garnet skriker "använd mig" igen.

Fortsatt återutlåning maj 2021

Den sista tiden har Kivas hemsida fungerat ganska dåligt. Det har inneburit att en måste klicka i filterfunktionen för varje nytt lån, vilket är tidskrävande. Tidigare har det också framgått tydligt vilka låntagare en redan har lånat ut till. Det fungerar inte heller så bra just nu. Därför har vi lånat ut dubbelt till den kvinnodominerade banken i Panama. Det är bara att hoppas på att det går bra för dem liksom för alla andra låntagare. Nu väntar vi med spänning på att se hur det kommer att se ut på Kivakontot efter juni månads återbetalningar.

Fler barntröjor på gång

 


Det har blivit många barntröjor den sista tiden. Den här modellen är rolig att sticka och kräver ingen montering eller massa fästande av trådar. Den flerfärgade stickas av en små snuttar av en blandning bomull/syntetgarn. Den lila av Tant Koftas bomullsgarn och den benfärgade av ullgarn från en kollega. Den har jag planer på att valka till en jacka. Vi får se hur det går med det projektet. Allt material är förstås överblivet och har legat i många år innan det har kommit till användning.
