An Old Oak Tree and A Present

Two happy boys in a funny old oak tree - almost as in Pippi Langstrump's stories.

Another of Stickfrossa's Ponchonette. This time knitted in Drops Merino Extra Fine and will be sent off to friend J today.

FO's amongst all the others...

My Fan Shawl has been finished for a while already, but I just couldn't get around to weave all the 'end-bits' until now. It is now having a little soak before blocking.

Charlie Pom-Pom Scarf has also been finished for some time, except the pom-pom's that is. But now they are there and soft as a baby's cheek.

...and finally, two quite resistant boys to model 'fusk-ollar' (Swedish for 'fake polo-neck) for the winter. Sadly I was seduced by the colours of Jarbo Fantasi yarn, because the feel of it is not as nice and I doubt the boys will agree to use them - 'to itchy'...

VickeVira's Mystery Shawl

Three clues knitted so far and I absolutely love it. Both the feel and look of the yarn - Malabrigo Sock, Colour Archangel - and the pattern which is so fun and fast to knit.

Hemp Dress

Last year I got a wonderful hemp-fabric from my mother, and finally I got around to sew something. Loose and very comfy fit.
Found the pattern in an old 'Allt om Handarbete'.


I have decided to join Vickevira's Mystery Shawl KAL. Using Malabrigo Sock, colour 850 Archangel. Never joined a KAL before, so this is exciting and what I have seen of others, the shawl already looks great.

Long time ago, I got this lovely fabric from my cousin M and started to make a bag from 'Home Sewn', a lovely and beautiful book. It has taken some time, but now it's ready to go. I put a flat/sturdy bottom in it to keep its nice form.

Swallowtail Shawl

My Swallowtail is ready for a soak and to be blocked. I don't know what I expected when knitting in laceweight, but right now it seems so small...
