Vinn Klassisk småbarnstrikk
As some of you might remember I had some secret knitting going on back in May. Well, It was for Tove Fevang's latest book - Klassisk småbarnstrikk. 25 old and classic pattern from Sandnes Garn from the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's has been rewritten for the yarn available today. The patterns are from age 0-4 and the book is filled with cute photos taken by her husband. Two of the models are their grandchildren the twins Nicolai and Oscar.
Besides patterns for sweaters, jackets, pants, hats and mittens, there is a big section in the book with great step by step parts, showing techniques such as raglan, steeking, sew in sleeves, etc
Last night Eirin and I had the chance to meet Tove at one of my local yarn shop as she was there to promote her book. It was great to meet her in person and talk to her after just being talking with her pr mail and telephone the last year or so.
I have been knitting three jackets and hats for this new book :) She is holding two of them.
I remember my mom knitting the sweater that is on the cover for my brother when he was little :)
And now for the giveaway, which is only open for norwegian readers...
If you want to win this book, leave a comment and let me know which sweater or jacket you remember from your childhood.
I remember I had a sweater with polarbears and one of my favorites was a fluffy kind of sweater in black with pink stars and stripes.
I will draw a winner Tuesday, December 3.
