I am unreasonably proud of this one, the pattern is Nancy kofte by Sandnes garn in hefte 43 kofter. It is knitted in Sandnes Peer Gynt. a 100% Norwegian wool yarn. I made a few modifications the two biggest being short row neck shaping and grading from a larger hip the bust size. It has my favorite wooden buttons and a cotton band covering the cut edges from the steek.
The bets part is that it is finished now when a jacket can be swapped to a nice sweater.
I knitted this toddler romper/trousers in Pickles exrta fine merino it has he most amazing deep eggplant purple. The pattern is from Sandnes garn hefte Baby 1415, the design is by Liv Stangeland. I have something of an obsession with knitting baby clothes at the moment there is no reason behind it but there incredibly cute and you can choose and an allover pattern without being stuck with it for a lifetime.
I wish it where possible to subscribe to Sandnes hefter, there pattern booklets and altho I don’t knit all the patterns I look at them for hours and hours for inspiration, wouldn’t it be nice to come home and find the new issue of amazing inspiration once a month. But they don’t come on a regular schedule nor have subscriptions since it not a magazine just pattern booklets from a yarn company.
I made this Faunalue from most of my leftover from Snoningstrøje, this is another pattern from Paelas. The lace pattern isn’t the most enjoyable to knit but I really like the look of the pattern. I used 45gram (99 meters) Sandnes Alpakka for the toddler size, which is on the thin side for this pattern, the colourway is 5563, the perfect blue/purple colour. The alpaca doesn’t show off the stitch pattern as well as merino yarn would, but I think it looks great this fussy way to.
I really like matching sets, it always feels special. So now I only hope that they will fit someone at the same time. But we’ll see when that time comes. I’m also thinking of making more knits in similar colour that will coordinate well with all the little items I already have stored. To make more complete sets without knitting all the pieces, so that all the little cardigans and sweater have leggings and hats or something that goes with it.
