I wanted to do my Hidden Starjust in time for Christmas. Maybe I rushed it too fast - as we didn't have any good options for the pictures this time. Today we have the darkest day in the year - and yesterday wasn't that much better. I used my old teddy-bear as a model - and when I had this comment on Ravelry (which really gave me a good laugh!) "Cute sweater - creepy baby" I realized that my teddy maybe frightened people off rather than attracted them...... I even realized that what is a cute thing for me doesn't necessarily mean that it is other than creepy to you. Well - anyhow - I am proud of my sweater - and even more so of my teddy. Here they are:
My teddy has followed me all my life - as my mother won him at the Tivoli in Copenhagen long before I was born! It is not difficult to detect that I used to drag him around in his ears and his nose - even if I loved him so much I did not treat him too well....
One thing is for certain: this will be my last design for 2012. I haven't even knitted a stich during the past days!
Now it's time for Christmas! Happy Christmas to you all!
Today I present a new hat-design: In the top of the Tree.
I think the leave-pattern reminds me of ivy-leaves climbing upwards, upwards to the crown of the tree for a meeting in the middle. I would love to be an ivy-leaf myself today - with fresh snow covering the woods and the fields - wouldn't it be just lovely to sit on the top of a beautiful tree watching the nature below?
The pink hat is knitted in a soft blend of babyalpaca/silk and the gauge is 24st to 10cm/4"
Whereas the brown beanie is knitted in heavenly soft Homespun Ilóyarn offered to me by Cecilia.
Thank you! It was lovely to work with! Knitted up to a gauge of 18st in st st.
Just a few words to present my newest design Along the Shore
. I'm on my way to visit old friends, but I wanted to post some of the beautiful pictures from the shore today. My daughter is improving her photoskills every day!
Wheather was amazing!
And another one:
The light was exceptional today. During the night we had a tiny bit of snow and a couple of degrees below zero. It was a relief to evade the weeks on end with rainy, damp weather (even if it meant less outdoorlife, and more knitting....) Hopefully we will have frost from now on - I would love more snow!
