I would actually have knitted it in purple, but the purple color I wanted was discontinued. I managed to get some of it for stripes. Grey is quite boring and yet practical for the garment.
I had a tote made with the name on the child. Using it as gift wrap.
I managed to knit two hats as well. I used Sandnes merinoull for them. The only obstacle was that crochet flower.
The pattern in the book, Klompelompe, gives absolutely no sense.
I emailed them, but they never answered. So I was left with youtube - and I found a video that was totally for beginners.
It seems I am not even a beginner... LOL! I managed to crochet wrong two times even with excellent instructions. I ended up using the first attempt and saved it with sewing and a button.
It will pass, I think. The hat looks so much better with a flower - and there should be a good pattern for it in that book...
Wish you all a merry christmas. Hope you can relax and enjoy the holidays.
