More crocheted mittens

More crocheted mittens from me.
I have really fallen in love with this tecnique. I have now used the previoused mitten all winter. They still got the same shape, and they are thick and warm.
The best of all is that there are no threads inside which my rings or fingers get tangeled into.

Chroceted mittens again.

I have fallen in love with chrocheting.
Once again some crocheted mittens I`ve made. The pattern is from our natives, the sami/lapp people, but with wrong colours. 
Theese mittens are soooo mine, warm and tight.

Chrocheted mittens.

At last... Finally I found out how to chrochet mittens like theese ones.
It has taken me some  time and a lot of patience for to figure this out..
But I think theese ones came out well. They look like they are knitted, but they are crocheted.
They became a Christmas gift for my Bonus daughter.

Latvian mittens

My mother gave me the best Christmas present ever. It was a knitting book full of patterns for Latvian mitten.
I just had to go down in my dungeon for to look after the thinnest wool yarn I knew I had. And I found some colours that would fit for my project. Thereafter I had to start looking up the thinnest knitting needles I knew I had somewhere... They are 1,5 mm thick.
Then I could start up. After a while I found out that the needles I used was not good to knit with... Thin knitting needles like theese ones in metal was bending in all directions, and it was a nightmare. 
So in the middle of the night I went on the internet for to buy some new unbendable knitting needles to knit with.
They arrived very quicly, I received them just after two days. And of course I had to buy some extra needles in 1,25 mm too. Theese needles in carbon are just wonderful to knit with, I have several sizes of theese ones, and I just love them. They are expensive, but they are worth every penny.
I started on theese mittens 28. of Desember, and I was finished with the mittens today. I am a really fast knittter , but... hi-hi.. I had to go to work also. But I just love theese mittens, and they are so mine.
I thought they would be thin to wear. But they went really thick: You go on with 3 threads of yarn alle the way, they just had to be thick.

 The roses is even on the both sides too.
Amen.

Baby jacket in Setesdals pattern

Forgot to put out this jacket I`ve made a while ago. It is made for a boy who is going to fit it now, and he is 12 month now.
Everybody is knitting the Marius pattern, and I have to say that I hate it. So I knitted the Setesdals pattern for little Daniel.

A knights cape for toddler: Julekongen


Every year one of the Norwegian television companies put ot a tv serie for childeren, while they are wating for Christmas. This year it is named: The Christmas king.
And some knitting companies takes advantage of this, and make some knitting sets. Really expencive to buy. But I figured out that this one has a good pattern and a good shape. And at last it really warms up toddlers neck and shoulders. So I went out and boght a set.
this one fits a toddler about 1 year.
Even gotits own tag:Julekongen. Suppose that this tag is what made the cape very expencive.
