With Gifts And Tags


Back from the best holiday ever - it is time to get some knitting done.

These baby hats is finally finished. They should have been that in the spring - but better late than never... It only took some hours to knit them.

And I really loved the faux cables on them. A traditional pattern made in a new way. I think they may be a little too big, but winter is long here so I hope they will come to use.

Small tags makes a little extra impression on a gift.
The pattern is from the book Babystrik på pinde 3 from the danish knit designer Lene Holme Samsøe.

She is so skilled and creative and finally her knitting design is a part of what norwegian yarn stores offer. We really really need new designs - not just old designs all over again.

There is a little difference between the yarns - but the size difference comes from my uneven knitting.

I knit tight when I start a new project. The blue was the first and therefor it is smaller than the pink one.

I have woven labels I normally sew on gifts. But I was afraid that they will scratch the babys head.

So I found some really nice tags in this shop and I think they will do. I always add some extra yarn and the wash label in a small plastic bag.

Hope you all had a lovely summer. Sorry that I have not had the time to visit your blogs. I will now - please know that I have not forgotten you!!

  2. De ser godt ud. Må nok anskaffe mig den bog. Min søn har et par yndlingslærere der har formastet sig til at gå på barsel:). Endnu engang tillykke med ferien og det hele. Jeg går ud fra at det er årsagen til at du måtte stå over på Fanø.

  8. Luene ser jo virkelig ut ikke som noe som kan ferdigstilles på noen timer! - Har også droppet merkelapper på tøy til de minste for å sikre at det ikke gnager eller stikker på de små.

    Nydelige luer, vet ikke om du selger eller gir dem bort i gaver. Mottakerne er uansett heldige. :)
