Tomten in Handspun

I made this Tomten from yarn spun by my friend Lisa, for my baby that's coming in November. We're not finding out if it's a boy or a girl, and I love the way bright colors like this orange look on babies. The yarn is very, very soft, I think wool with some mohair. I've made the Tomten several times, and it's come out better when I've used different yarn, but since this was the first knitted item I made for my baby, s/he will wear it with pride!

This is my first post and I'm excited to be here--80% of the time I'm knitting some EZ concoction.

  • Really really nice! I think your
    baby will look like a real tomten
    in it. It looks so real somehow.
    Nice job!
