Dress Onion 9001

Last november I took a class and sewed up a dress for myself.
I had to adjust the pattern so that skirt did not come too high. I am happy with the result, but have not used the dress much, I guess I am not a dress person. I tried Janome overlock  and cover sewing machines, that was fun!
Pattern: Onion 9001 "Kjole til strikstof"
Fabric from QjuTie Digital Collection (heavy ticot fabric)
Class supplier: Kakle

Nord alpaca sweater

This is the Christmas present I made for my son.
Pattern: “Nord” from Sandnes yarn. Booklet «Tema 51 Norske ikoner»
Yarn: Puno from Rauma Yarn
The pattern calls for "Fritidsgarn" wool yarn, but he is very sensitive, so I chose to use alpaca instead after recommendations in my local yarn shop. My son is between size M and L, I knitted him and L with this yarn, but ended up a little smaller than desired. He will hopefully use the sweater anyway, he is spending the next 5 months at Svalbard; an arctic island.
