Bamse i rib / Bear in rib
Jeg håber det bliver en pige. Om ikke andet, så fordi jeg kunne strikke i noget af det hjemmefarvede garn fra forrige weekend!
The last couple of weeks on the train have passed knitting for babies. There is a baby brother coming in the family, and at work, one of the physiotherapists is VERY pregnant (which is why she is not a work, but you get the point.....) and that poor baby really needs a bit of wool, arriving in the loving arms of a 2 year old big sister!
I do hope the baby is a girl. At least since that would give me an excuse for knitting some of the home-dyed yarn from 2 weeks ago!
Baby i rib". Lige her bare fortolket som "Bamse i rib".
Jeg strikkede også en i en flot, grønblå Regia Silk, da ihvertfald den ene baby er en dreng!
Modellen er bare skøn, praktisk og nem. Og alle ved jo, at uld er det bedste værn mod den forkølede omverden! (Eller måske ikke. Man kan da ihvertfald håbe.)
Begge små veste vejede ca. 30 gram hver. Nærmest ingenting!
It turned out to become two "baby in rib". Right here interpreted as "Bear in rib".
I also knitted in a beautiful, green-blue Regia Silk, since at least one of the babies is a boy!
The model is just great, practical and easy. And everyone knows that wool is the best protection from the virally infected world! (Or maybe not. You can always hope.)
Both of the small vests weighed around 30 grams each. Close to nothing.
Jeg kan ikke huske hvilken side knappen skal sidde i til hvilket køn, men som det er nu, er 50% rigtig.
I knitted them on needles size 3 mm, and the size is newborn. They look like doll's clothes, but I do think it's so cute with something that fits directly after the birth, and they ARE sized according to the pattern.
I'm never able to remember which side the button should sit at for which gender, but the way it is, 50% are correct.
