Christmas Knitting.


I hope all of you have had a peaceful and happy Christmas holiday! We have been enjoying time with our families with way too much chocolate and lots of laughter.

Now that everyone has opened their Christmas gifts so I can finally show what I knitted! I didn't have time to make anything for my parents but I promised to knit them socks anyway, they'll get them when I have time to finish them. (I'm using the Rye sock pattern by Tincanknits, it's such a great pattern and I love how they fit!)

I knitted hats for my sisters, the younger one got a white and beige Laurus hat (pattern by Dianna Walla and it is freely available via Fringe hat along) and for the big sis I knitted a Bror hat (pattern by Hege Klaseie). I used Drops Nepal for both hats, and for the contrasting sections I used the last remaining leftover pieces of Novita Alpaca Wool. (Both photos are posed by me before giving the hats away.)





And for my one-year old godson I knitted a hat using the I Heart Cables pattern. I've knitted two hats using this pattern for Theo earlier in the smallest size and I really like them! This time I made the toddler size. I also made him a little scarf, and I will be posting the pattern here as soon as I have time to knit another one to make sure my notes are correct. (The scarf is posed by Theo, but the hat was way too big for him.)
