When my daughter is tucked down in her bed I'm knitting the secret Christmas present wardrobe for her Build a Bear, her favourite teddy.
The skirt is indeed very inspired by the #mælkebøttenederdel by #petiteknit
A matching cardigan is also planned for her, but that's going to be an improvised model with raglan.

Today I've braided a pair of storks
#danishpaperbirds

Wayne sweater. The original pattern dictates purl in the Batman pattern, but I chose knit in a contrast colour.
The recipient is over excited and has started a collection of home made super hero gadgets.

Today I've braided a swan.

Her til aften har jeg flettet en svane. Det var første forsøg. Jeg er ikke helt tilfreds med resultatet, saksen er for grov til at klippe så fint. Hvem kan anbefale en god papirsaks til sådan noget småklipperi?

What's on your needles? @bartnikjohansson asked.
A #waynesweater, naturally 🦇🤘 I never seem to follow a pattern completely as intended. The receiver requested the bat mask in a contrast colour and not knitted in purl, as intended. I decided not to embroider the mask after finishing the sweater rather than knitting intarsia in the round. The resulting joint is placed in the back, and I'm fairly pleased with the invisibility of that joint. Swipe to se the joint.

For those interested in the joint technique, I can recommend YouTube videos from Cynthia MacDougall, look for #intarsiaintheround.

#sorbetsamstrik til mors pige af rester fra min egen #sorbetcardigan. Mindre end 5 g er tilbage. Den lilla farve på ærmerne måtte forkortes med to pinde for at slå til, og det er af samme grund, at manchetterne er lyserøde og ikke hvide. På dette billede ser modtageren begejstret ud fordi hun bliver fotograferet, men i virkeligheden er hun ikke tilfreds, der er nemlig, ifølge hende, alt for mange drengefarver på sweateren til, at hun kan være fornøjet.

Jeg vil også være med på en #sorbetsamstrik, men jeg tyvstartede for et par dage siden og mangler derfor kun et par ærmer. Her en tillempet mini Sorbet sweater udarbejdet fra mini cardiganmønstret. Garnet er udelukkende rester fra min egen cardigan, som jeg strikkede tidligere på efteråret. Jeg har strikket den med åben krave, så der bliver plads til en lille knap i halsåbningen, og med venderækker, så halsen sidder pænere.
Modtageren er pænt spændt på resultatet.

I managed to finish my #morshverdagscardigan by @anordicknittingtale last weekend. Already washed, blocked and worn several times and now it's time for photo documentation 📸
Need I say it's a winner?

Monday morning essentials.
This free pattern #finirestegarnpannebånd was a fast knit to warn my cold ears on a fall morning 🍁🍂The yarn is truly vintage, straight out of my late grandmother's impressive stash.

Inaugurating our new hobby room with a project completely out of my comfort zone. I can't sew but I'm giving it a go with some help from #tillywalnes. #delphineskirt

#morshverdagscardigan in petrol on my needles. Design by #anordicknittingtale .

Fall is over us and it's time to resume some of the cosy hobbies.
