More baby caps

To make use of every bit of yarn I had left from making socks and such, I made more baby caps.

Ella's trousers

I've been wanting to knit trousers for some time and I thought baby Ella would be the perfect candidate for knitted trousers. My mother usually relies on knitting patterns found in the Sandnes magazines. I browsed through all her magazines and found just what I was looking for; a pair of garter stitch trousers with cute details suitable for both boys and girls. I made slight changes to the existing pattern but not many.

I was worried they wouldn't fit Ella - she has grown so fast, but luckily they were just the right size... for a couple of weeks at least :)

Arwetta Classic, needles 2.5 and 3 mm - I used 50 g of brown, 40 g of white and a wee bit of orange.

Another one

I guess this baby cap needs no further introduction, since I made so many of them. This one was given to one of Moe's former colleagues, who had his second daughter in January.

Arwetta Classic, needles 2.5 mm and 3 mm - Moe picked the colours.

Baby Ella

My childhood friend had a baby girl, Ella, three months ago. I quickly made a hat for her - she was born a little earlier than expected, so I hadn't really prepared much when she arrived :)

Granddad's 85th birthday

I was in Italy on his birthday. The following Sunday Moe and I went by his house and dropped of a small present. I wanted to give him good health, a brand new body, and his youth back, but since that wasn't going to happen, I gave him a pair of socks instead. He luuuuves my homeknit
socks :)

Blanket in the making

I needed something simple to knit during my lunch break at work, and for some time I've been wanting to make a blanket. Family members and friends are having babies nonstop, so it's going to be a baby blanket for a boy.

Nine balls of 'Tove' from Sandnes, three of each colour.

Cold hands and feet

This winter has been cold and it still is.

Mr. Snowball here is obviously doing what he can to keep warm.

White Christmas; it was so cold that we could walk only for about twenty minutes, then we had to go back because our faces hurt so much!

Mogens' niece, Malene, was born in October. When we came back from our little walk she was sound asleep in her pram outside. After some time her mother went out and picked her up. Malene's hands and feet were quite cold when she came back in - I must admit that while she was sleeping I was a bit worried because it was very very very cold outside - so I began knitting mittens and socks for her.

The bright pink yarn doesn't photograph very well, but trust me when I tell you it's pink alright :) Both mother and child were very pleased with the result.
