In Stockholm I even had time for some small shopping. I bought some pair of shoes, some clothes and the rest of the Christmas gifts of course. And I also had the opportunity to meet some friends down town. We also went over to Johans’ brother with family to eat dinner. They live in a suburb of Stockholm.
Wow, all this we did in 10 days. That it actually a lot.
And then I also had time for some knitting. Of course I knitted some of the Christmas gifts.
The scarf for Jonas (my sisters spouse) was finished first. I like the colour. I actually finished it on the airplane from Iceland.
After that I immediately started on a collar for Linneas’ (dad’s wife) mother. I knitted a bit in the evening, the day we arrived, and then also the next two evening before Christmas Ewe. I finished it just in time. It is actually nice looking. It’s made in léttlopi so there is not a need for a lot of yarn. You can actually just take some leftovers.
After that I started to knit a cute little dress for my niece. We went there the 26:th of December. But sadly I did not finish it before we arrived. I finished the last part the 27:th and it turned out really good actually. A perfect fit. A nice little Christmas dress or just for New Years Ewe.
And this is how it look like on:
After that there was time for some gloves. I promised my sister do make her gloves that matched her hat.
After that I made another thing in the series for Jonas. A hat that would fit the scarf.
Then I actually did one more thing, a pair of socks for my mum. I used the rest of the yarn from Jonas’ hat.
They turned out like this:
..and now I guess I’m going to start with the the lopapeysa using the bright red lopi yarn I bought. It will be interesting to see the result. I have to start that tomorrow when we have knitting club.
