Time to catch up



I've been neglecting the blog lately, but maybe now's the time to catch up. Lately, I've been knitting some baby stuff, as there are two new babies in the family, a girl and a boy.

For the girl:







Cardigan in Rowan Felted Tweed. There's no pattern. I wanted the cardigan to be simple but with details. So I decided on a small cable along the sleeves and on the right front. The i-cord edge was made to add a little contrast to the gray. I was lucky to find the perfect buttons for this.



The famous Saartje's Bootees made in left over yarn from the cardigan.





Socks, also in left over yarn. No particular pattern, just 2x2 ribbing, my preferred heel flap, and a grafted toe.

For the boy:



A vest in Drops Alpaca. This one gave a lot of bother. I had to give it several tries before I was satisfied enough to give it away. Unfortunately it also meant that this was the only thing he got. There simply wasn't time to knit another piece. It is knitted in the round, and the ribbings are 1x1 and twisted.




I've started something for myself now. Another post about this is comming up soon.

Hej Lise

Det er så fint alt det du har lavet. Har fulgt lidt med på Ravelry, hvor jeg har set det meste af det. Det er super fint!

Distræt som jeg er, glemte jeg strik på bymuseet i går. Var du der? Hvad med på onsdag. Kommer du der? Og så ses vi vel på torsdag...? Er det hos Karin?

Knus, glæder mig til at se dig

Vi ses!

Very lucky babies to receive such beautiful gifts. They are all so adorable.

What elegant pieces! I've just promised to knit a sweater for a boy due early next year, so I'm on the lookout for cute, sensible pieces...

Ih hvor laver du nogle skønne ting. Syntes din pige cardigan er helt fantastisk, og vil næsten opfordre dig til at skrive en opskrift.

Lise said...

Tak Louise. En opskrift ved jeg ikke, om det bliver til. Det er jo efterhånden 3 1/2 år siden jeg strikkede den. Men måske skulle jeg kigge i gemmerne efter noterne...
