hey hey, my my


... it's starting to look like a sweater!
My first big knitting project ever, and my first knitting-from-an-english-pattern project ever. (Ok, I admit it, I've had some help translating it. Takk Lise!)
Luckily, I don't have to knit this in secrecy; I'm knitting it right under his nose. He wouldn't notice if it had his name written across the chest.
It's going so fast, that even if it turns out too small (which I am afraid it will), I will have time to knit a bigger one in time. Yay! Compulsive works. Another bad news story now and I'll have one ready for my son by x-mas too.

beautiful!
What is the pattern, if I may ask? I was a little thrilled to hear it was in English, if for purely selfish purposes.
Thank you!
Iris

Wonderful!

Mona said...

Flot!!
Det kan jo godt være han ikke ænser hvad du har mellem hænderne - men læser han ikke din blog? :)
Ham Jared har også lavet en voksen udgave af Zimmermans Tomten. Sådan én kunne jeg også godt tænke mig at strikke. Tjek den på Ravelry - eller hane egen blog er det måske ...

Nesten ferdig, jo! Den blir veldig fin - og er selvsagt en ypperlig gave også til en sønn.

Nå ble jeg inspirert! Kjøpte dette mønsteret for en stund siden og ser jo at det er den perfekte julegave og til mannen her i heimen.. (Bare at min er litt mer observant...) Hva slags garn bruker du?

Oh that is one beautiful sweater!

Ladybug and fish fish: it's Sandnes Smart, a norwegian wool yarn.
