Winter, snow and X'mas and SantaMamas
It's time for x'mas updates! It's been a very busy month for me and my babygirl, we have moved to a new apartment, I spent many hours at my new job, and I have also finished several old and new knitting projects. One of them is a red hat for AN which is a very important part of x'mas in our part of the world. I was after a pattern for it for a long time, and finally I got one from "my" yarn store, a friendly lady who works there made me a copy and I started knitting at the very same evening. The pattern was simple and the yarn easy to handle, so it didn't take much time to reach this:
I have lost the only pair of mittens I had with me to Norway and desperately needed new. Again- it took long time before I could start knitting them as I was not able to find a pattern good enough. Finally I did- from Garnstudio.com of course (find the way to the translation to estonian language at the left on this page).
I used pure new wool yarn Alaska from Garnstudio and needles nr 5.
The pattern was very different from any of the patterns I have seen before, and it wasn't easy for me to find out how it really works. You can see the result of my confusion on the first picture heheheee :D
But after the necessary correction the mittens became very useful :)
Lastly, here I can show you the to pairs of socks I was asked to make by my dear friend Babyapple( :-) ), here again, I spent much too long time knitting them as the order came in the time were I had all the changes in my life going on. At least now Babyapple have received them, her son is sure that a SantaMama have made these for him and his little brother..... :D
