During the last two months I have been knitting quite a lot – for newborn babies and for our advent calendar – but unfortunately I forgot to take pictures most of the time before I gave the gifts away. So I can’t show them off on my Blog now.
I remembered to take a photograph of the last gift I gave away though. This striped hat was for a new little family member who was born on Winter Solstice. When I heard the happy news early that morning I knew that the world wouldn’t go down.
The free Ravelry pattern is the Plain and Striped Newborn (Purple) Hat. The yarn is 100 % Merino Wool that I bought in a local craft shop.
Another knitting project that I (nearly) finished are those socks for Lenja. I wanted to add a few balloons but I’m not sure if I will now. Lenja loves them as they are. She was delighted to be allowed to stand on the table for our Photo Shooting.
I got the sock pattern from the book Cute Knits for Baby Feet and they are my third pair of socks that I tried from this book. I always thought sock knitting is quite difficult but I think I finally got the hang of it.
How about you? What are your knitting or crafting projects these days?
