When we were in Denmark this summer I asked Sofie if there were anything she needed or wanted that I could knit to her. She joined me to a shop and looked through many recipes before she found a skirt and a top that she liked. I took a look at the pattern and said to her that sure, I could knit this for her. She wanted to choose the colours, claiming that I always chose so boring colours.
So a sharp yellow top is so far the result, and now I have started on the skirt.

When I was in London visiting my daughter I went to John Lewis on Oxford street. I found a booklet by Debbie Bliss with lovely recioes for babyclothes. So I bought some baby casmerino yarn and knitted this white sweater for my niece.
Hope she will like it.
Next project is to use the leftover yarn.

I went to London to visit my daughter. Saturday we took a long walk along the south side of the Thames and ended up in a spot where a lot of activities were going on. Some were giving a concert, some were showing their rabbits and guneapig to the young children, some were playing with loads of vegetable creating different vegetable creatures. And in the corner were I Knit London and the great British Sheep
I knitted a square and so did my daughter Rigmor.

So together with a white body I think this will make a nice baby outfit.
Since the baby is due in the fall, and the winters around here can cold, I made some baby socks to go with the outfit.
So, Is this girliesh enough?

As I have a niece expecting a baby in the fall, I thought that these colours could fit a little boy or girl. Well they were quick to make, just 40 stiches around.

Each square is made up based on 29 stitches. Then on every 2. row you reduce 2 masks by using the three middle masks on the knitting needle. In the end you are stuck with one mask only. This you can use together with masks you pick up along one side of the square (all together 15) and then you add 14 extra masks and repeat.

Same colours, same material.
And now we can hope for some snow so they will be useful. So far the winter has consisted of rain, wind and storms.

I have made myself a pair of squirrell mittens, so the squirrells are facing each other...
The big plan is to scan the pattern and put it out on the net... May be I will remember to do so one day.
I used Silja from GJESDAL to the mittens. Silja is a yarn designed for socks - but I loved the colours together, and my thinking is - socks need strong yarn - and then may be the mittens will not wear out for many years. And they can be machine washed....
