The Finale: Heimdallr Socks & Mittens + giveaway

The Finale: Heimdallr Socks & Mittens + giveaway

Start the drumroll for the grand finale! It’s about time. You have seen three wonderful sets of cabled socks and mittens and maybe even learned a little about some figures from Norse Mythology: Jormungandr, the world snake. Oden, highest and wisest of Norse Gods and Frigg, his beautiful wife.

The Advent calendar face

The Advent calendar face

Hooray! No need to keep the big socking mission a secret any longer! I can’t believe I managed to keep my mouth shut about this so I’m super relieved that December finally is here so my husband can open his advent calendar. It took me 4 month of continuous knitting and a few hours of wrapping (I’m not a wrapping-genius, as you probably can tell….) to make this calendar for him, most of the time he was sitting next to…

Happy kids mittens – new pattern

Happy kids mittens – new pattern

It’s been weeks since I’ve seen the sun here in Stockholm and if it weren’t for all the happy colours in my stash I would probably go crazy. So, to keep me from going insane and to keep my hands busy (as If I needed any more projects for that!) I wrote up the pattern for my boys’s favourite mittens and hope that they will keep us and you happy on dark and cold winter days. And it’s only one…
