Welcome To The World

A friend just gave birth to a beautiful little boy. I knew it would be a boy so I started knitting this sweater and hat a while ago. It is knitted for the age of six months - you never know the size of a newborn.

It was such a joy to knit this.
So tiny and it turned out fine. I had problems with a very vague pattern so I got a lot of help in the yarn shop. Gosh, I´m so happy about that.

The set is knitted from Sandnes yarn Lanett, a very soft and superwash merino yarn.

I found a little suitcase to use as gift box and some ribbons with the word baby on.

It is so giving to make something handmade for a very special friend who are an angel in my life.

I hope my friend will like it - I´ve knitted prayers and good wishes into the stitches. Welcome to the world little guy.

You´re lucky to be born into such a loving home.

This is the suitcase with the set gift wrapped and with the ribbons on.

  3. For et nydelig sett, helt herlig og lit typisk norsk! Sånne kofferter er så fine, mine hadde det også og de ble mye brukt.

    Takk for tips om votteKAL. Har hatt disse vottene på lista lenge, så kanskje jeg skal gripe sjansen. Flott sjøhest genser også!

    Ønsker deg også en riktig god jul! :)
