And now:....let me present to you....Clapotis!

I'm almost half way there. The pattern is Clapotis from Knitty.com and the yarn is Kauni's Effektgarn. I'm using 4,5 mm circular needles. The first photo is the most accurate in colour. The close-ups are a bit pale.

First Shedir done as well

As you can see it's too big for a kid. But I think it will be a great Christmas gift for an adult. Any one have a favourite colour? I need to know what colour of yarn to buy.

Socks done

Just to prove that I actually made A Pair of the Charade socks. I like them so much I have already started on a new pair.

Hats, hats, hats...

This is the hat Shedir from Knitty. And for this I'm actually using the suggested yarn, Rowan's Calmer. I very nice (and here in sweden expensive) yarn.

This is Amelia Earhart aviator cap. The black ne is the right size for me and the green is small enough for a kid.

Leaf t-shirt

I've been knitting a t-shirt. A leaf t-shirt. I dropped everything else for a few days and I'm almost done with it. I used a cotton / wool mix from Marks & Kattens called BomUll.
