Yes, pigs can fly, sometimes :-)


Several years back I gave up knitting. I even gave away the rest of my yarn and knitting needles - that was how determined I was. My arms hurt, and it was not that fun anymore.

Last year I bought some yarn in Canada, as well as bamboo knitting needles, and I found I can knit a little again.

The preemie hats and booties are my only finishes for May, and I will donate them to Amandaprosjektet.


I had decided on not having more knitting yarn than what could fit in this small Ikea box. I guess I have to get busy, as DD2 did some yarn shopping for me today, and got a bit carried away - she came home with 4 balls of soft baby wool instead of 2 balls :-)

The bigger balls of yarn I have are sock yarn, not suitable for tender baby skin. I love wool socks in the morning, during winter.

The baby hats are the most fun to make, and I am playing around with lace knitting and braids, and they are finished in a few hours. I also like the thought of warming some wee babies and their parents with my work.

I will do sewing machine work again tomorrow -
I love patchwork and quilting the most :-)




  1. Kjempesøte bittesmå plagg :)
    Kos deg masse!

  2. You seem to be spreading joy all around.........

    Love the hats.... I knit caps when I am to tired to think. One simple pattern that I have and it uses up excess yarn...........

    You will be up and about again soon.

  3. Glad you are able to knit again. Lovely patterns in those hats.

    How is your foot?

  4. Hi Hanne... The hats are so beautiful... I am sure the babies who get them their parents will love them... You do such beautiful work... I crochet when I need a break from hand sewing... Hope your foot is feeling much better...Hugs :)

  5. Lovely work, Hanne!! Years ago I did some crocheting but I've never learned how to knit. Enjoy!

  6. I love the pumpkin hat!

    Så flink du er, jeg klarer ikke strikke i det hele tatt jeg. Men det er jo deilig å lage noe annet en gang i blandt også....

    Håper du blir fort frisk. ^^

  7. You are a multi-talented person....with such lovely quilting and knitting as well! I enjoy "mindless" knitting and it relaxes me as is a pleasure, but i am just a "wanna-be" quilter! Hope you are feeling better every passing day. (((vonnie)))

  8. Så søte strikkeluer til Amandaprosjektet. Godt jobba
