Of mice and men

The night of 28th august my second cousin decided to end his life, I dedicate this post to him.
Michael, rest in peace.

I talked to his mother on the memorial today and she told me to remember to always take care of your baby. Time goes away so quickly. And you hear it all of the time, but it's very true! So when Kristiane didn't want to sleep, I laid her on my chest, and she calmed down. I took a picture for the memory of it. That moment will never come back, and I need to cherish it.


But when they are sleeping, we can KNIT!

The "Lina" hat was startet when I went to Jessheim, because my middle-little-sister's name is Lina, and I wanted her to have it. I think it will suit her perfectly! I actually shortened it abit because I personally dislike hats that are too long, so I only have 3 repeats and not four. I used 66g of Viking Sportsyarn.

And ofcourse, Kristianes kindergardensuit (for when she's like 3 years. haha). I actually struggeled a bit with it, because I was short some yarn. I needed to e-mail the shop where I bought the yarn and ask if they could send me a little skein. And they did! But now I see that there's a slight difference in the dye,. Shit! Hopefully no one else will notice:)

The pattern (Nøstebarndress) is to be found in the book "strikk til nøstebarn" and I've used 242g of 2tråds merinoull from Askeladen. Syrin and Brown.

I used pink mousebuttons that I got from a HV in Hobbyboden, but now I can't remember who it was, sorry. I really liked them, they look pretty cute walking up the buttonposte(?).

And I was in Jessheim last week. Did some shopping on sale, found myself 3 skeins of Drops Alpacca, 4 skeins of Smart, and a booklet with Sirdar Bamboo-patterns! I also found some yarn for a friend of mine, we're doing a swap. I just love sales.

And I've got two shawl-packages from Projo, so I better get startet then!

Så fin nøstebarn-dressen ble(det er nøstebarndress,ikke sant?)Og du har helt rett i det du skriver forresten...

Nøstebarndressen ble kjempefin, og fargeforskjellen ble ikke så veldig stor. Dressen kan godt være litt stor under dressen til å begynne med, de vokser rask inn i den :) Ha en fin helg, og ta godt vare på gullklumpen din....

Noen ganger kommer livet bare susene og vi får (igjen) sjansen til å ta vare på de må, gyldne øyeblikkene, - ta vare på dem. Smart med bilder da :-)
God helg!

Trist å lese om søskenbarnet ditt. Det er når sånt skjer at en innser at de små øyeblikkene er verdifulle.
Lina-luen din ble kjempefin. Jeg fulgte oppskriften og syntes den ble litt i største laget. Men men.
Nøstebarndressen ble også flott. Og jeg kunne ikke se noen fargeforskjell. De museknappene var supersøte!
Ha en koselig helg :-)

Museknappene på nøstebarndressen var kjempesøte da!

Jeg er imponert over hvor flink du er med alt slags håndarbeid.
