Cute knitted babydress and knitted socks or indoor shoes!

Now I have finished the dress for Olivia and also a pair of socks or indoor shoes (I do not know really what to call them). They turned out really cute and the dress too of course. The dress was knitted a little bit unevenly because it was so thin thread and small needles. I was not really used to it. But I like the result anyway. The pattern can be found on www.garnstudio.com. You can choose english there and look in the baby section. It was knitted with 100% alpaca and needles 2,5 and 3. I used the pattern from the dress in the socks too.
Here is the result:

I also put two buttons in the neck. Here is how the back side looks like:

And here is a separate picture of the socks. They are so cute.

On Tuesday I will put on the dress because then me and Olivia will go for a visit at work. All the people are curious to see how she looks like. So there will be cake and stuff. Then I will shoot some pictures of her in the dress and the socks and put out a nice one here.

Icelandic poncho, hat and scarf!

Now finally I can put out a picture of my secret project I was doing. It was an Icelandic poncho. I made a black one not so long ago for a friend that turned 30 years old. Now I made another one in olive green for Linnea (dad's wife) for her 50th birtday. This is how it looks like on me:

She had her birthday yesterday and she got it delivered before the weekend so it is all good. I used Icelandic wool of course (Lopi) and knitted with needles 4,5 and 6.
Then I had some left-overs of the yarn so I felt like doing something quick. So I made a hat in with similar pattern as the poncho. I casted on 68 stitches with needles 4,5 and then changed to needles 6 after the ribbing. It was a good size for me with 68 stitches but too small for Johan.8 maskor. Here is the result:

But I still had some left-overs so I made a scarf too with vertical stripes. I knitted this one with needles 4.5 and 200 stitches cast-on. I could have done a longer cast-on since it turned out to be only 137 cm. But I like it and will use it. This is how it looks like on one side:

And this is the other side:

Next time I hope I have a picture on the cute baby dress I am knitting. There is still not much progress since I have been doing the hat and the scarf instead. But now I have nothing else going on so this time I will finish it.
