De store / The bigger ones
Det er gået ret nemt med kroppen, så jeg håber bærestykket opfører sig på samme måde.
Well. Babies aside to focus on the older generation. (Funny calling them "older generation"!) The sweater for my nephew still doesn't look like something almost done, but I do know that a bit of focusing and some wonderful knitting time, it will get done by New Year.
The body came along nicely, and I hope the yoke will be as well behaved.
Hun fik garn og strikkepinde, og hendes gave er allerede færdig!
At the same time, his cousin in Hong Kong made her Christmas gift. She needed something to knit, and you don't need to tell me THAT twice while in a yarn shop!
She had yarn and needles, and her gift is already done!
Hun tog ud foran og til raglan, og da det passede i størrelsen, strikkede hun nogle pinde ret over ærmerne og lukkede af. Forkanterne er også bare et par masker ret, og der er en retkant forneden.
Den er blevet så fin! Jeg synes hun er dygtig, og jeg håber, hun bliver rigtig glad for sin vest.
She wished for a warm vest, so we found heavy alpaca and improvised. It's knitted top-down, and it took 2 tries to get the number of stitches right.
She increased at the front and for raglan, and once the size was right, she made a few rows of garter stitch on the sleeve stitches and cast off. The front edges are also just a few garter stitches, and there is a garter stitch border at the bottom.
It looks so pretty! I think she is a really good knitter, and I do hope she will love her vest.
