Hello Kitty & Monster

Like last year the kids get something knitted in their advent calendar. This year I have made them mittens. Eirin gets a felted pair with crochet Hello Kitty faces :)

I'm so happy with these mittens! I have used a wooden star button instead of a crochet bow or flower.

  2. Oh! Hello Kitty and Monster Butt are both very cute!

  3. De monsterbuksene er så utrolig kule! Mine fremtidige barn skal nok ha sånne ja!

  4. Did you seriously get all that knitting done in just a few days? I'm in shock! You are SOOO fast! Very cute knits.

  5. Eg har aldri strikka ullbukser ein gong, så eg er djupt imponert! ...men du får lov til å senda meg oppskrift på ullbukse viss du vil ..? ;)

  6. Absolutely darling mittens! And those pants are just plain scary!!

  7. Thank you for the link to the Hello Kitty crochet face. The mittens are super cute.
    I saw the monster pants on Ravelry and love then!

    No, the mittens have been layig around for a while, I just need to finish them. But the pants have I kitted during the last week ;)

  9. Those monster pants are adorable!! Love them. The mittens are great too. Lucky kids!

  10. De monsterbuksene er jo bare knalltøffe! Hvis du vil kan du få lov å strikke en i str ca ett år :-p

  11. Are the monster-pants for around the house, or are they durable enough to go out in the snow and play?

    1. They can be worn around the house, but here in Norway we use wool pants like this as a second layer under the winter clothes when the kids are out playing in the snow. It get cold here you know ;)
