A little baby knit for a little princess 🧶😊

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

In between work and job and a couple of unexpected other things I have manage to knit a bit clothes to a sweet little baby princess.

A very good friend of my got a baby girl some months ago, more exactly in the beginning of July this year. So this little baby girl starting to get older and a bit bigger too, and it’s also starting to be colder here in Spain. So hopefully some knitted clothes will keep her a bit warm during the wintertime? ….if they fits…😳😊

I’m not sure if the clothes actually will fit this “sweety pie” because she is growing up so fast and she is already soon closely 5 months, and I have been knitting in size 3- 6 months 🧶. Maybe it will be baby- doll clothes instead ?😊

Some knitted baby clothes for the wintertime to a sweet little baby girl 🥰.

And to be honest,- I have been a bit slowly with my knitting too because there has been a couple of other things then just work I needed to “deal” with to during the last months. It’s an other story and I’m going to tell you what has “kept” my time and days busy- when the time is right to tell.

A jacket, scarf, two hats in different sizes and trousers 🧣

I don’t think one of the hat will fit, not either the trousers, but probably the scarf and maybe the other hat and the jacket.

A yellow dress- maybe this will fit? 👗

My friend and her baby girl are in Norway at the moment and visiting their family and friends so it’s a bit difficult to try the clothes on her daughter too 😊.

She knows her daughter will get this clothes when they are back home in Spain. And she also know that maybe they can be to small.

I have started on something new to the baby princess – in size 6- 9 months…..just in case 😊

I do manage to do a couple of other things in between work, job and unexpected happenings in life- like knit and paint too. I need to – just to relax a bit in my mind, a tiny little timeout from “all and everything”.

A “cozy suit” for coldwinter days – maybe this will it-but I’m not sure.

The photos are maybe not the best, but I can’t manage “it all ” 😅.

And when it comes to the knit recipe- I’m using Norwegian recipes created mainly to use different kinds of Norwegian yarn. And I knitting with Spanish yarn at the moment. You should think it shouldn’t be any difference, but it actually are. Even when I’m trying my best to follow the knit recipe there’s some different changes when it comes to the size in the recipe I’m using and how the product is when it’s finish. And of course also the size of the knitting needles are also a crucial factor for the garment to be correct in size.

Do you have something you to when your mind and thoughts just need to rest a bit?

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon I hope 😊

A soft dress in pink ❄👗. The last one for this time is a soft dress in light pink. This one I actually think will fit the little baby princess 👸.

In between work, job and a bit unexpected happenings in life I need to take a “timeout” I need to just let my mind and thoughts rest for a tiny bit- and then it’s good to have some knittin needles and yarn to “play” a bit with 😊🧶.

To a little baby girl 😊🧡

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

This weekend I visited a tiny, very new and so incredibly sweet little baby girl 🍼🧡. She is so beautiful 🥰. And of course I visited her mammi too. Her mammi is my great (Norwegian) friend, Line 😊. And it was so good to see them both 🥰. All is fine with the newborn and the mammi, and the daddy as well 😊.

And I’m the first one, except from the mammi and daddy, and of course the nurses and doctors, to see, meet and hold this little wonderful baby girl 🥰. I feel a bit honored over that, I need to admit that 🧡. And I’m really looking forward to get to know this little sweetheart 🥰.

I started to knit a baby blanket to the baby, I think in the middle of May, and I really wanted to be finish with the blanket as well as give it to Line before the baby was born. But I was not sure if I would manage it inbetween moving, jobs, glass bottles painting ( totally 27 🎨) ,and a bit more too 😅. But I did,- the blanket is finish, and Line got it just some days before her and her boyfriend’s baby was born 😊.

The blanket is knit with 100 % cotton so it’s nice and soft for the little baby girl. Maybe a bit to warm to use inside at the moment, or even outside too. Because we have some warm summer days here in Spain at the moment 🌞.

The knitted baby blanket- knit by me 🧶😊

I have started on some baby clothes too to this little baby girl. But in size 3 to 6 months, and 6 to 9 months. It’s a bit to warm for some knit clothes now, but there will be a colder Autumn and a Winter when soft and warm clothes are good to have 🧶.

And it is so strange to knit baby clothes. They are so tiny and small, and it goes so fast to knit them too, then to knit to adults. I’m actually finish with a jacket and a couple of trousers already to this little sweetheart 🧶🧡. But the baby will get them a bit later together with something more clothes. She doesn’t need knitted clothes like that at the moment, and it can be good to have some “bigger” clothes to choose between when the Autumn and winter is coming.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

The finish baby blanket knit in 100 % cotton 🧶. I actually forgot to write down the size before Igave the blanket to Line, but it’s more then big enough for the baby for many months 😊.

I didn’t thought I was going to manage finish the baby blanket before the baby to one of my great friend was born,- but I actually did 😊🧶. And this weekend I was so incredibly lucky to meet this little baby girl and her mammi too 🥰.

She did “design” it, I made it 😊👗🧶

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

Like some of you know I like to knit,- and I have actually knit since I was 12 years old. And I did knit the first baby clothes to my children too. Their first clothes they used from the hospital and home 🤱.

I have knit a lots of different clothes to my children during the years when they was younger. But when they became older “mammi’s” knit clothes was not so popular for a while. Which was okay for me, I understood that 😊.

But when they became young adults I asked again if they wanted or needed some knit clothes. My oldest son wanted some different sweaters, my middle son didn’t want to much, and not my daughter either, before recently 😊.

I have actually asked her a couple of time if she wanted to draw something she wanted me to knit for her, because she is both creative and she draw very good. ( Im probably not very natural- of course , I think her drawings are good 🥰). But the interest has not been to big before she did see some knit clothes on a social media channel 🧶. Then she asked me if I could knit something for her, – and of course I wanted 🥰.

So she did made me a drawing over what she wanted me to knit, we bought the yarn together so she got the colours she wanted, and she moved out….and I forgot to take good to measure how far, wide and so on by her before she moved out 😳.

So I have actually tried my very best to knit “by my head” as well and asked her during the knit “process” how long and so on.

I need to say the results was not to bad at all,- and she was quite happy too 🥰. And I liked it too. I hope she will ask me again to do something like this for and to her😊.

My daughter in her new knit clothes- “designed” by her, and made by me 🧶

Not to bad at all 🥰. I know it was not the most “complicated” clothes to knit, but I’m a bit proud over the result, – and it suits my daughter so perfect 🥰.

My daughter’s drawing, and that’s what I knot this clothes from- nothing more 🧶

I also made her a tights too. Design by me and made by me. I have actually knit 6 different tights this winter. Two to a friend, three to my self and one to my daughter 🧶. They are so nice to use during the cold winter- time. Soft, warm and comfortable.

So when she visited me this weekend she got a different things and stuffs with her in her back- bag to her apartment 😊. Some knit clothes and some homemade food as well 😊. And of course it was incredible great to see her again and give her some good hugs as well 😊.

I was very excited how her skirt and top would suit her, special because I haven’t very much else to knit from and by then a drawing and my mind. But we are both very happy with the finish product. Good teamwork 😊.

It has been a very nice, relaxing and cozy weekend with some “luxury” for my self, and incredibly nice visit from my daughter 🥰.

I hope your weekend has brought you some happiness and joy too 🧡.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

My daughter in her new knit clothes- skirt, top- “designed” by my daughter, and a tights “designed” by me – and it all made by me 😊🧶.

My daughter asked me if I could knit some clothes to her 🧶,- and I asked her if she could draw to me what she wanted me to make 😊. So more and less with just a drawing and my mind I made a nice summer outfit to her 🥰. Good teamwork by daughter and mammi with a good result too 😊.

“She is like a little sister for me” 👨‍👦🧡

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I’m finish with my first glassbottle painted with neon colours. It didn’t became exactly the way I had in mind, but I think it is because I don’t have any neon lights? 🤔 Anyway,- I still think it became a bit cool 😊. And this glassbottle is to my oldest son’s friend 🧡.

My first glassbottle with just neon colours 😊 A gift to my oldest son’s friend 🎁

He lived in my home for 3 months last year at this time, and then it actually was the second time he has been living here together with my oldest son and me and my daughters well. Both the young boys lived here for a tiny while when they moved to Spain some years ago and was looking for to find their own apartment 😊.

And he had been a bit in and out of my home since that, visiting me together with my oldest son 😊. Both are now living together at the mountains ⛰. I’m actually a bit happy my son and his dog, Zorro, don’t live alone at the mountains anymore 😊. It’s a bit fare away from people to be honest,- after a mammi’s heart and opinion 😅. But maybe that’s why they’re enjoying living there so much?

When my daughter needed help in December 2020 to move all her things back home my oldest son’s friend helped her together with her oldest brother. Both of the young men picked up all here things in a very good and calm way. I was actually very impressed how they handled the situation 🧡.

And of course I did Thank him a lot because he chose to use his time, even take of his working- hours to help her. Then he told me “Of course, she is like a little sister for me”🧡. And as a mammi that touched my heart a lot. Imagine he looked at my daughter as a little sister 🧡. His little sister 🥀.

The glassbottle “all around: but without any lights inside 💡

But maybe it is in away a bit natural too? It’s 10 years between them, and they have spend a lots of time together here in Spain. My daughter has spent some evenings together with them looking at movies or watching her big brother when he was streaming different kinds of online games when they lived a bit closer.

I also knit a hat, scarf and elf- socks to him,- just because he deserves it 😊. And it can still be s bit cold up there in the mountains even the Spring is slowly coming ❄

It’s also my daughter that has been looking after his two cats when he has travelled to Norway and visiting his family and friends.

And last Spring when Spain “closed down” for 3 months, and put us all into curfew, one of his cats actually moved into my daughter and lived there for 3 months 🐱.

Some details from the glassbottle with neon colours 🔎

So in so many ways I can actually understand why he looks at my daughter as his little sister, also because I myself think about him as a part of my and our family. But it still touched my heart very much when he actually told me this, and even more because he used the words “of course” 🧡.

So I want to give him something that shows him how much I presage him as a the person he is, the part of my and our family he has become, as well as the care he had shown my daughter, and still do 🧡. And then it became some knit and some painted, both one of a kind, and made just for him 💙.

And PS- a big Thank you to the blogger #zoewiezoe that actually gave my the idea to try to paint with neon colours 🎨 🥀 I m going to continue try to paint with neon colours as well as oil colours, and also some acrylic painting too, in between 😊🎨.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

The neon painted glassbottle with lights inside 💡

I was, and still is, very touched by my oldest son’s friend’s words when he was helping my daughter moving back home to me in December 2020 💙. And I wanted to give him something “special” made just for him because of this- just to try to show him how much I presage him and also his help 💙.

I have knitted a Spring dress to myself 🌞🧶👗

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

January and February was a bit quite months in my different freelance work, both in the writing area as well as on the chat line. So when I was waiting for some work to do, some money to earn I made, actually knit, myself a dress for the Easter and the Spring 🥀.

Finish with my dress for the Easter and the Spring 😊

My knitted dress could probably been a bit longer, but I now can choose to use it as a short dress or a long jumper.

My knitted dress from front, behind and also the pattern I have used.

The pattern I have used is very simple. I just used it in away to create my dress a bit more colourful.

It’s maybe a bit to short to use for a woman in age 48? Some will probably think so, other will probably don’t give it to many thoughts at all 😊. For me it’s not a problem that it’s a bit short, I like it that way.

And the yarn I have used will actually not crawl in the wash, but stretch.  Not all yarns in Spain are of the same quality, and this yarn I have knitted with is 100% acrylic.  My experience with 100% acrylic is that it expands a little and stretches a little after being washed in a washing machine. 

I have knitted three different tights (one black, one dark gray and one light gray) to myself too, also which I use in my home office.  It’s good to wear comfortable and warm clothes in the winter, I think.  And they have become a little more stretchy after a few laps in the washing machine too.

I like to knit and create, to be creative and create something useful in one or another way. But to be honest,- I really hope there will be a bit more work to do in my online freelance work soon,- even I’m not “wasting” my time with not doing nothing when I’m waiting for more to do 🎨🧶.

Anyway,- I know there is some different busy days in front of me the next weeks, not just work, but other things and stuffs that’s need to be taken care of.

I’m grateful for having a creative mind, and the possibility for create different things 💚. Special during a time as we live in now at days, and it also “takes my mind” a bit away from negative thoughts to be creative and create. I presage that. I know many people are struggling now at days with heavy thoughts and the difficult time we live in. Because it is a difficult time in one or another way for many people around us- sometimes we forget that and think it’s just we that have a difficult time- but it’s not 🧡.

I hope your days in one or another way it’s easy, and I hope you can be able to focus in just a tiny little positive thing in your day or life when the days feels a bit difficult. I really know it’s not easy to do when it all feels “cold and black”- but I hope you will manage it 💛.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

It’s not to bad this dress, and it’s very soft and comfortable to wear too 😊

When I has been waiting for some work to do in my freelance online work I have knit and created me a Easter and Spring dress 😊. I’m very grateful for having a creative mind so I manage to do something out of my “waiting- time” during this a bit now and then challenging “corona- time” 🧶🎨. To create takes my mind away from negative thoughts- and I like that, change my focus into something positive 😊💚.
