Christmas presents

In august I began planning what my knitted Christmas presents should be this time. 

First thing; a shawl, Camomille by Helga Isager, for my mother. Half way through is I made a mistake, spent a long time trying to fix it without unravelling the whole thing, realized it didn't work, unravelled quite a bit and spent 10 hours getting back to where the realization happened. In spite of that, I actually enjoyed knitting this shawl. 
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 second thing was this cardigan, Crocus by Helga Isager, made with Cascade 220 Superwash from (unfortunately, Slavi has closed his business since then - such a shame). The receiver of this soft cardigan was Malene, Moe's niece. And it fit her beautifully. 

Presents three and four where socks for my dad and granddad. Both of them are addicted to homeknit socks made with Regia Silk. And I can't blame them. I didn't manage to get a photo of them - you can take a look at my granddad (the nicest person I know) instead :)

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.
