"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!

Hunter-s Star Bed Quilt

 Mixing all shades of greens works in the woods, so it did work in a quilt too.
The quilt is all from my stash. The quilt is a gift for my parents.
