a finished story about norwegian sweaters



i set out to make a trio of norwegian sweaters for my two great nephew age 3 and 1 and my great niece age 1. and i made just before work starts again tomorrow. argh.
the green and brown raglan is based on ez's recipe for a raglan and the patterns from books by vibeke lind and annichen sibbern bøhn (please join my contest over at my blog. i have certainly learned a lot of new techniques which is my principle. i learned the crochet steek and with the green and brown sweater jogless stripes. that works wonders.
the sweater is made out of rowanspun dk in the colours catkin and thor. the 3 year old didn't not want to try it on. no way. but there were lots of people at today's party (perfect strangers) who asked me to knit for them. and i will. i they will clean my house for as many hours.

  • Very clever way to discourage askings.

    The grey and green is lovely.

  • Such glorious sweaters. I sympathize with the three-year-old modeling, having tried to get my little cousin into his new sweater with no luck. Five hours later, he was hot to try it on, and he hasn't stopped talking about it since. ;)
