After seeing so many beautiful versions of this pattern I just had to put everything else aside to make this beautiful set. The pattern I used is Vinterdrakt by Paelas for the romper, Little chausses for the socks and Little heaume for the pixie hat. The yarn is Lana Grossa Alta Moda Alpaca it is very soft and airy, however I got one really bad skein with about 15 defects in the first 25 grams, thankfully I bought it locally and the shop replaced it for me, and none of the other had more then 1 defect which is normal for most yarns.
The icord waist band is made in Pickles extra fine merino in the colour rouge that I’m currently using to make a colour-work toddler sweater. The two projects were lying next to each other in my knitting basket and the colour combination was just perfect and then I found some buttons in the exact same shade of red in my button stash. Instead of placing a button in the neck keyhole opening I made an extra Icord to tie in the neck.
It was snowing heavily while I was taking these photos the other day, I love snow a lot and sadly it is currently raining away, but it is quite tricky to place all items and snap a photo before they where completely covered.
