I´ve been working hard trying to put my patterns together. So far I´ve got three mitten patterns (so far only in Swedish) done.
Last weekend I tried my luck at a Christmas Craft Bazaar and I sold better than expected.
The mitten Signe, at the front in black and white, is my bestseller.
Signe is also my own personal favourite. I like Signe so much that I decided to make a a hat to match the mittens. If you take a close look you can see that I was knitting on the Signe hat at the bazaar.
And here she is, finished and blocked:
The pattern works well on a hat, too.
Because Ludvig loves to pose for the camera he asked if he could model the Signe hat.
I didn´t have the heart to say no.
No front teeth.
Then we decided to take pictures of some of the other hats that I´ve made.
This is a fair isle hat that I put together myself using traditional patterns a few years ago.
It was great for learning how to construct a fair isle pattern and how to do the decreases on top.
I remember working on this hat for nearly two weeks, ripping out several times and trying again.
And because I love pink I have of course made myself a pink fair isle hat.
It´s felted and very warm.
Ludvig didn´t mind modelling the pink hat. He even thought it was the best one out of the three.
But he couldn´t wear it to school, because the other boys would tease him.
