First of all I'll have to let you know that I'm working on importing our hiking blog into this on. It's just to much work to blog in several places... So I know there will be some links not working and maybe some post in the past that will have the same story in different ways, but I hope I'll get around and fix some of it ;)
A friend of mine gave birth to a adorable little girl on Endre's birthday! So finally I could cast on for this sweet little jacket.
Pattern: Baby Sweater on Two Needles by Elizabet Zimmermann.
Yarn: 68 g Babyull from Gjestal # 823.
Needles: 3,5 mm.
Notes: Button holes on row 4, 20, 36, 52, 68, 84 and 100
Increase on row 9, 17 and 27

I knitted the sleeves on dpns afterwards
Put the sleeve st on hold on row 45
After 93 rows I started the garter-st ending
I knitted 40 rows on the sleeve before I started the garter-st ending. I might have knitted a few rows more, because they got a little short.
After a very rainy day yesterday, with the rain pouring down, we had to get those ants out of the kids pants ;) So we went hiking. We made a new "toy" - some ropes to practise the balance on.
The tabanus and deer flies have come with the heat :( Here's Endre examining one after it's been hit.
And the bog is full of unripe cloudberry :)
