This is the first time I make a sweater for my boyfriend.
It’s a long story – it always is :) More details on my Ravelry project page.

Pretty cuffs

It’s below zero degree celsius outside. Sometimes, I still want to dress light though; tights – thus my thick knee-highs – a short-sleeved sweater – thus these cuffs made in leftover alpaca …

They are pretty, but I didn’t have enough yarn to make them as long as I wanted and they itch … so I made another pair in a nice cheap wool and soya yarn from my local supermarket.

2nd sock design: Big fat rib!

Made another pair of really long socks. This time with a sport-weight sock yarn and a stripy chunky rib on top. The rib is striped with double-held fingering sock yarn. Use various leftovers for a contrasting effect.

First time felting

A very quick and satisfying little project.

When I put them in the washing machine I had no idea if these huge floppy socks eventually would fit the tiny feet of my daughter. They did :)

… the hat and the girl ❤

This hat was so much fun! The tassels are not only cute they also add weight to the hat and helps it to stay on her head.
