My unfinished knitting projects

I just wanted to make an update about my on-going projects. I have actually 3 projects going on right now. The I am trying to finish is a Sweater for a 8 years old. Take a look at the picture and guess which one it is? It is a Sweater I have made before but for a grown-up.
It goes slowly with the knitting at the moment. I only knit a few rounds every evening.



I am also trying to finish the shorts I am making for my darling. But I am not getting anywere really. If I did not tell you what it was on the picture I think it is very difficult to see. I am knitting them from top to bottom. So next step is to start to knit the legs.



And for a long time ago I started to knit a Sweater for a 1 year old. I forgot about it for a while but I will soon take it up again. Nothing has happened here for about 2 months I thinkt. What a small body it is:

Two pair of regular knitted mittens in Álafoss Lopi

A customer asked me a while ago if I had a pattern for just regular mittens with rounded top in Lopi. Of course, I said. I have them in a couple of days. And the same day I wrote down a pattern and started to knit. Here is the result:



I knitted 2 pairs, sizes S and L. One pair for me of course and one pair for my boyfriend. It was fun to use the multi-colored yarn. So easy to get striped mittens. The pattern is for sale in my webshop as a electronic file.

Another knitted Icelandic Sweater for a Dog finished!

I got an order from a customer, who wanted a Sweater for her dog (Shi Tzu). It was bigger than the usual sweaters I have made. So I had to recalcalculate before I knitted it. I call it a XXXL sweater now in my webshop. I hope it will fit. The sweater is lying flat now, drying. I am going to send it to the custome tomorrow. This is how it looks like. The neck is wide. But I will put in a small silk ribbon in the neck so it is possible to tighten it.
This is how it looks like right now:



After that I have continued to knit the underwear/shorts for my darling.

A pair of blue mittens - Swedish wool mittens

Olivia (my 3 years old daugher found some yarn, which she once got. It was mostly yarn-overs from a Swedish yarn in 100% wool. And then she asked me if I could not knit a pair of blue mittens for her. I said of course YES and started directly. I was quick and finished them in a day. However, I ran out of blue yarn when I had the thumbs left. So I took some yellow yarn for the thumbs and also used the yellow in the pigtails and the embroidery. They look very Swedish (Swedish flag is blue and yellow) and I like them:
