Being on maternity leave leaves time for things that the Danish winter doesn’t really leave room for if you work full-time. Such as taking progress shots. And shots of FOs.
There’s been more knitting going on lately, though I cannot begin to hope to match my mother when it comes to productivity. She’s celebrating her impending new status by knitting lots of woolly underthings for the kangaroo.
I have knitted various items. Djævlehuen is a must of course. This is the bringing home version. I’ll probably make a couple more in various sizes. The pattern is from Blød Begyndelse and is really good because it consits of only two rows.
I’ve made a pair of pants, and some soakers . The latter still need some extra lanolin.
I’ve also made some vests, and what my mother insists used to be called a Felini-jacket or something like that.
A Tomten jacket - love that one. Although I haven’t finished it yet. I’m not quite sure how I want to sew up the sleeves.
As for the WIPs, there are socks and a sleepsack and various other items.
For myself I’ve made a bolero from Ysolda. Pics will have to wait till I get my body back
I’ve bought Kauni for a cardigan and some linen yarn for a skirt and perhaps a top for summer. I am also knitting a woolly cardigan for myself. It’s taken from Klassisk Vintage Strik that was a booklet that came with Hendes Verden (a Ladies Journal) last year. The yarn is a bit scratchy but the color is lovely and it was languishing as part of a halfway finished Rogue that I’d never get done. I had to knit it with an alpaca yarn to match the tension and it was just getting too bulky and too warm.
So much to knit, so little time. Especially when it comes to baby stuff. Seeing as how it can be any day now.
