Syjunta is the Swedish word for people getting together to sew, crochet, knit, embroider and socialise. I read about it in a magazine and thought that it was such a good idea, I thought I’d organise an afternoon of syjunta myself. I invited some friends, made some soup and a banana loaf and had a nice hyggelig afternoon.
My second project was the Foxy Sox as I got the kit as a Christmas present from pao. The kittens had gotten hold of the yarn when we were away and raced around the house with it (they have form already). It was a huge tangled mess and pao spent hours trying to untangle it. It is quite tricky and I didn’t much fancy the multistranded toe up cast on so I thought I’d do a top down version. I’ve stitched and unpicked it about three times now!
