Whow! Every day seems just so buy at work those days. I am longing for holiday right now but still have about a month to wait for it.
I heard that Pascale in Belgium received the crazy exchange that I sent to her so I can show you some pictures. This was a march challenge piece at Stitch and Stash forum (Jayne’s Attic). I really loved making this little hedgehog. And immedialy thought of Pascale to send it off to, I am happy to say that she enjoyed it. I made this into a needlebook. Here are some pictures.
This chart is called the Hedgehog Quaker and comes from the Workbasket.
The free chart can be found here.
The facric and thread are some scraps from my stash.
Lately I have been knitting quite a lot. I have managed to finish off a dress for my youngest daughter Jóhanna Brynja and a vest for my middle daughter Friðbjörg Lilja. Here are some pictures of them showing off their new clothes.
Here is Friðbjörg Lilja wearing her new vest. The pattern can be found in English on the net for free. Please, click here. If you would like to find out more about icelandic knitting and for more free patterns please check out http://istex.is
I’ll leave you here. Currently I have started knitting another vest, the same pattern as I knitted before but in different colours for my oldest daughter Hjálmfríður Bríet. I am also working on my Nature’s Home afghan. I have started another block and have been stitching on tuesday evenings just not posting a picture recently. I will post a picture on tuesday of the block and also of the whole afghan, it has changed a bit since I posted a overview picture the last time.
Until next time, hope you have a wonderful day. Take care.
