It's finally the time of the year and Little Guy is old enough to enjoy baking, so a lot of christmas cookie baking is going on here (though I wish I could make some not including cookie cutters, but we all know, these are the greatest fun for the wee ones...)
When not baking my hooks and knitting needles are used a lot in the last time, so I have a something to show.The weather was quite gloomy in the last days, so my photos aren't the best, but I'm sure you'll get the idea.
I made a star garland and I love it. The colours are just perfect. As far as I can remember (these are all leftovers) the blue is Katia Merino 100%, the red one Lana Grossa Come and pea green and pink are Cashmerino DK.
It's not as colourful as my usual work, but I never felt more satisfied with a colour combination! Little Guy loves it, too. He wants to have it in his room. Well, maybe after christmas. Or not. Sometimes mummy has to make cute little things for herself.
Talking about making things for oneself. This selfish mama has finished another sweater and has fallen in love with a very special yarn....
|I lost another 6kg since the last shot *yay*|
Again a blurry shot - sorry - but you get it. This is the most awesome pattern I've ever seen. Trowbridge by the very talented Alicia Plummer. The yarn is Wollmeise DK in Kornblume, an incredibly lovely blue. As handdyed yarns sometimes tend to be, one skein I bought back in August was very different compared to the other two, so I had to manage this one with two skeins, hence it is a bit shorter that I would have liked it. But never mind, the yarn, oh the yarn is perfect. It is so soft and blooms wonderfully with washing. This is definitely a yarn to buy again (once they have the perfect colour in stock - I'm thinking a nice grassy green or a deep purple...)
Next time I'm going to show you the hats I made in the last two weeks. Somehow I can't stop. Hat making is sooo addictive!
