2014!

In the first months of 2014 I promised myself to write down everything I’d craft in the year and make a fancy list of if by the end of the year. I made a list of almost everything I did and tried to put it all up on Ravelry with photos. However, some pairs of socks and mittens were missed by the camera and it’s not a complete list for the year as I’m definitely forgetting something…

So here it is, in no particular order:

Knitting 

Baby set for the wee one; a sweater, hat and socks

Ysolda’s MKAL shawl

A green BSJ

A purple BSJ

Striped socks

Kenzie shawl

And… loads of mittens, socks and hats for the kids.

Crocheting

A blanket for the wee one

 Herðubreið shawl

 Blanket for a new nephew

Jóhanna af Örk hat/cowl

 

I’m setting the goal for even more crafting in 2015!

The Danish Royal Baby Blanket

When I got pregnant I decided to knit a blanket that had been a favorite of mine for a long time: Babysvøbet – Det hele kongerige! by Marianne Knorborg. It took me from January to the end of April to finish the whole thing. I technically knit the inner border 6 times as I decided, after knitting two sides, that I wanted the lace to be more open.

So I went up a needle size, frogged the already knit borders and knit all four of them again. I’m really happy with the result! The outer border took the longest and the blocking was a bit tricky. But with great help from the husband and my new blocking wires (LOVE THEM!) it “only” took an hour and a whole room in the apartment!

I’m never blocking a huge piece like this without blocking wires…

Size before blocking: 100 cm x 100 cm

The borders drape pretty nicely.
