A Little Something

I always think that small knits are quick and easy. That is before I start knitting. But this time it actually was quick and easy. At least the hat.

This is for two birthday children and I knitted the dress in bright pink with some orange details. It was such a great knit from Paelas. Yes, it took some time but it knitted up fast and I like the design.
A little detail on the dress.

They are both knitted in Sandes merinoull that is super wash. It is a great yarn to knit with although it splits very easy. 

I like the stitch definition and that the garment endure a lot of washing and using. 

The hat is from the book Klompelompe. After knitting a few of them I was told that the sizes are very small - I will remember that. 

And hats are really difficult to find the right size for when you do not know it. Hats are great childrens gifts and also hard to find the right size for. 

Wish there were some magical rule for it. 

But it seems like one have to know the circumference of the head. How can you know that sort of thing - and then the sizes are in ages and not in centimeter? Maybe you have some advice for me?

It was great fun giving them away. Handknitted gifts are just so giving to make and to give.

  3. Det tager altid længere tid end man tror - at pusle med "små-strik" - detaljerne kan tage vældig lang tid ☺ Det er et par super lækre ting, du har fået lavet, der er nogle, der bliver glade - jeg er helt vild med pink og orange - så finurligt sammen ☺ Jeg har strikket en 3-4 huer til mit barnebarn Lillefrø og ingen af dem var store nok, så jeg forstår hvad du mener ;-) håber den fine lille hue passer ☺ ha en dejlig dag
    Ps - skønt indlæg om farver og flotte, flotte billeder ☺
