New Year, new project

Image
It's been a long time since I knitted a sweater (for myself) but when I saw this pattern (Peaks Pullover from PurlSoho) I decided to go for it.
Pretty pleased with the end result.
Maybe I'll knit another one soon.

Christmas 2019

Image
Doing my usual Christmas crafts, Nativity sets, light strands, slippers, bunnies, bears and new for this year the reindeer.

But my absolute favourite this year were the giant gnomes.
The pattern is "Here We Gnome Again" and are actually knitted on a 3mm needle. But a client asked me to make them at least 40-45 cm tall so I used a very bulky yarn and 8mm needle.

They turned out fantastic!

Baby stuff

Image
Expecting new babies in the family again so back to some old favourites (the duck) and trying out some new cuties.

The top left booties are my own design.

The baby slippers are from Ravelry

The giraffe is from LoveCrafts

Slippers

Image
Have to work ahead of time so here are some new slippers for the upcoming winter season!

The possibilities for design and colour combinations are endless.


Foxy girl

Image
Another cute animal from Little Cotton Rabbits website, a Foxy girl this time.

I had been eyeing her a for a while already but when I saw an alteration on this fox to make it into a reindeer (for Christmas) I was definitely sold.

So here she is.


And the reindeer change-up.

Canada Day

Image
I had a request to make a typical Canadian animal with a red and white dress.
I couldn't find a pattern that pleased me so I ended up altering the bunny pattern (from Little Cotton Rabbits) into a beaver, with small ears and added some big teeth. I embroidered a maple leaf on the front of the dress.
It turned out pretty nice so I'm pleased.
And so was the customer!
