I knit a hat in June

Who knits a worsted weight hat in June? Well me I guess! I couldn't help myself, I had to knit this hat, had to.

Gosh, he is so gorgeous, I can't believe he is my child! Theodor loves his warrior hat, David wants an adult version..

And the serous warrior look

The pattern is called Tvebak, and is from the fantastic book The Little Nordic Collection by Amimono - they where inspired by Astrid Lingren and her beautiful stories. I remember the one with Tvebak in it "Mio min Mio" I wept while reading it as a child.

Uhh! Someone took a picture of me for a change, look!

 Me, June 2013

I enjoyed knitting them, but the finished socks are…blah. The design is too wide, I would slide around in them, and that’s not comfortable. So they are going home with my Dad, to wait for Fall, they fit him great!

 

(I actually finished these just days after posting on the blog that there was no rush...maybe that’s the key to finishing projects in 2’s?)

I don’t just love to knit, I need to knit. Every. Single. Day. Sometimes other people benefit from my addiction, but usually what I knit is meant for me.

 

I’m waiting for my chance to make my own River Cottage, that’ll be the day. Until that happens, I will try to  make the best of my vegetable patch in the suburbs of Copenhagen.
