it is my holiday and i'll knit what i want to.....




here is albert. he is my great nephew, and the youngest of my other niece's two sons, carl and yes, albert . albert is alba's junior by one week. his mother hasn't really wanted me to knit anything for either of the boys, but i have decided that they need a norwegian sweater too. they are too cute. and it is kind of a boyish sweater.


this little one looks so scandinavian with his big blue eyes and i found a skein of navy blue rowanspun in my yarn cupboard and that will be ideal together with the light grey. the red is the yarn for the provisional cast-on. once again i will use the knitted up hem, that i think gives such a beautiful finish to sweaters. i will make one for the three year old carl (in the lower picture wth their mum) once this is finished.....


the tomten goes back into the knitting cupboard for a while. i have an issue with the colour.

Those are going to be some handsome young men in their sweaters. Will you make them matching or just similar?
