I have been invited to sell my yarns and some related things on "Jungfrusunds Julmarknad"! It is a local Christmas market here on the islands, apparently I am now an islander. :)
Please come and have a look at local products (the local honey is especially recommended, and the hand spun yarn of course) and feel Christmasy. If you live south of Stockholm you can take the car ferry over the water, a lovely ride. And if you live north of Stockholm you can visit Drottningholms Christmas market on the way back.
From the crazy leftover yarn I made these little flower brooches. It is a simple spiral but it folds into itself beautifully. And there is always the element of surprise when knitting them, because I don't know what colour the yarn will turn into next.
This hat though, compared to the ear flap one, is glorious! It turned out great! Lovely colour, perfect fit, and it is really comfortable. I like it, this is my hat for the winter. The pattern is the Sock Head Hat.
My ears get really relly cold in the winter, so the obvious solution is an ear flap hat. Tada! Well, it turned out a bit to small, and it looks like some colourful baby helmet. The yarn is glorious though, it is the one I got in the tea and yarn swap I was in recently. I think I have to make a new hat.
Sadly, jewellery has lost some of its magic glow after appearing in the real world after being thrown about for three years at Konstfack. I have no doubts that I will reestablish my love for it on my own terms in time, but for now I was happy to be inspired by Kristi Paap from Estonia.
I have been knitting some too, but you cant show presents until the receiver has seen them first. This is Lasses birthday photo-gloves. With an "peel off" feature on the index finger and thumb on the right hand, so that you can press the trigger and fiddle with the dials.
