A finish!

I finished my Christmas bag last week, woo hoo!!! It is the perfect size, and I am very happy to have it finished:-)

Here's the front of the bag where I used the Technique we learned in AnnAKa's class at the shop. I will definitely use this shrinking technique in the future as well- it is so much FUN! And early next year I will be getting the "shrinking fabric" at the shop- I am so excited!
Oh, and I've been sidetracked... during the cold winter I tend to knit a lot- it keeps my hands warm I guess.... This is going to be a jacket for the boys. They both wanted one, but they wear the same size, so I am only knitting one in this particular pattern... I'll knit another one in a different pattern. (this is called a "Marius sweater"
Yesterday we celebrated St.Lucia, and the boys had a concert at the town hall. Ola is in the percussion section- 2nd from the right. They played lots of Christmas carols- it was very nice.
Sigve and a co student played "we wish you a merry Christmas" solo. They did very good and I was a very proud Mom....
Before the concert the kids and I made "lussekatter"- sweet rolls. Yummy....
Oh and by the way I am thrilled that my SSCS present has arrived at Julie's.... And I have received my SSCS present from Elizabeth. Now I can't wait for Christmas..... A big THANK YOU to Donna for hosting this wonderful swap!
Thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!


  1. Merry Christmas my friend! Your bag is so pretty. I hope we get the shrinking stuff over here in the U.S. as I would love to do some quilt blocks with it.I hope you and all the family will have a safe and beautifiul holiday at the cabin. I will be in touch after the holidays. Many blessings and hugs, Marie

  7. I wish I had time to knit. The design you are using looks rather intricate. Sweaters don't do us a lot of good in Florida but I very much admire the ones that are hand made.
    Those sweet rolls look yummy!
