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.

"Biesurr" Baby Afghan

"Biesurr" baby afghan from the book "Inspirerende norske strikkemønstre" by Wenche Roald and Annichen Sibbern Bøhn.
Added some ekstra stitches to increase the width.
Cotton backing, adding the backing made it steady, this I recommend.
Now I just need to find a baby that can use it!

Ethereal Knitted Shawl

I knitted this shawl a year ago, but put it away, cause it looked way too small. Somebody told me to block it out. Yesterday, struggling with a cold, I tried and it turned out much better! A great knitting project for summer-time, recomended!
