When the weather suddenly turned very cold in the beginning of January, my mother was worried she would be freezing her head if she didn't get a thicker hat. So of course I made her another hat. A wurm.
Yarn: Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed (love it!) on needles 5.0 mm.

In august I began planning what my knitted Christmas presents should be this time.
The yarn is Supersoft aka Júnik wool and Lana Grossa Lace. And to knit with I used my Addi 4.0 mm. and my Clover hook 3.5 mm.
The fifth present was for Moe - he's a man will cold feet. But no more, because now he's got these slippers, and he's more or less attached to them day and night.
Crocheted using the Clover hook 6.0 mm with New Zealandsk Lammeuld from Filcolana and Gotlandsk Pelsuld also from Filcolana. In the first picture you can see what they looked like before they went into the washing mashine.

Birdie, being member of a vegan family, is not a wool bearing child. I've searched high and low for a natural plant fiber yarn with the same - or almost the same - qualities as those of wool. It has not been easy. So far I've bought only cotton and a bamboo blend. Here's my contribution in 100% cotton - say hello to Crocus by Helga Isager.
Instead of using the original yarn I used Safran from Drops (raspberry red) and Alba (lime green) on 3.5 mm needles. I chose a size 2 years because Birdie is already 7 months old and the only sizes available by Helga Isager are 6 month, 2 years and 3 years (a bit odd, if you ask me). I had to recalculate everything since my gauge was way off. But I'm okay with that - I love it when I figure it out anyway :)

So soft, fluffy and warm. And it was fun to knit too. I've had the yarn for a long time, you know, saving it for the perfect project. It peels a little more than I want it to, but not enough for me to dislike it.
Sublime Angora Merino: 80% merino and 20% angora. Needles 3.5 mm.
