Christmas Stitches

Finally show time for the christmas gifts. Not a lot, but a lot with bad shoulders. I started knitting on the dress in september in order to have enough time for it.

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.

It is after all an every day garment in use for anything. I used Rauma Panda for the grey and the purple is from Sandnes yarn.

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.

  1. Tusen takk for kjempehyggelig kommentar på bloggen min! Så nydelig strikk du gir i gave, heldige småtroll. Har forstått at Klompelompe mønstrene kan være en utfordring, min søster kastet boka i veggen og hun er ingen begynner heller.... :-) Ha en herlig kveld, her begynner det nå å lukte jul! :-) Juleklem fra meg!

  3. Søde små ting. Hvor kan vi finde meget på nettet/youtube!
    God restjul til dig i Nord. Faktisk går tankerne til Norge i år. Sønnike fik hyre på en coaster og ligger i ly inde bag Stavanger.
