Doll Pants

(for the reference, see the music video here)

I can’t model them on the doll because I don’t have a Baby-Born like my niece. But I made her some pants for her doll from this pattern. (I didn’t quite understand the instructions for the casing, there was an extra instruction that I didn’t get. Any Norwegian speakers want to help me to make sure I didn’t miss anything?)

I am completely exhausted. We went to New York yesterday to see Of Montreal in concert. (If you will be in Iceland for Airwaves, I highly recommend checking them out next week. Or if not, try and catch them, they have a very entertaining stage show). There was a very silly rap band opening for them called Grand Buffet. We didn’t think most of the people got those guys, but they were really funny.

Anyway, I don’t recommend walking from Grand Central Station to Greenwich Village when you have somewhere you actually want to be later (and are therefore walking fast). As a wandering around kind of walk I guess it isn’t bad, if you are used to walking. And I also don’t recommend trying to count on getting a cab, since 5 of them that were empty ignored us. The subway is really not that bad once you figure it out, it’s more confusing than the T in Boston. Besides the show and walking, we didn’t do a whole lot. We went to Bleecker Bob’s record shop, we walked through Washington Square Park, we checked out a flea market, we walked through the farmers’ market (which was very cool but way too crowded–there was yarn and meat and cheese there! I almost bought yarn, but we were focused on getting lunch at the time). I walked past Lush and American Apparel and Strand Books and a really neat looking cinema, IFC Center. Since our trip was all about the show, I didn’t drag the family to yarn/fabric places; besides which, it looks like we are going to Rhinebeck next weekend.

We got home at 4 in the morning and I am still very sleepy, since I had to wake up around 8-ish. And Ingi is trying to quit smoking (it’s the 5th day if my sleepy brain did the math right), so feel free togo give him some encouragement.

    The dollpants looks really fine to me, so just keep on knitting after Norwegian patterns, you are clever. Rhinebeck sound so fun, wish you a pleasant time there.

    I can’t see that you’ve missed anything, but if you write the sentence you are wondering about, I can try and translate it for you 🙂

    The sentence “Trekk en strikk gjennom” means that you shall put some kind of elastic waistband into the casing. The word “strikk” in this context means an elastic band/string. I guess that makes sense? 🙂
