Ja, jag vet. Fler haklappar. Men, de används! 🙂 Här har jag klurat ut en stickad variant, väldigt löst inspirerad från den slätstickade jag testade innan. Jag ska gräva fram mina anteckningar och posta dem här! Garn: Rico Design Fashion Colour Pop DK


Yes, I know. More bibs. But hey, they are much needed! 🙂 Here I’ve come up with a knitted one, very loosely inspired of the stockinette one from before. I’ll dig out my notes and publish them here! Yarn: Rico Design Fashion Colour Pop DK

FO: Stockinette bib

Denna haklappsmodellen ser fin ut när den är precis våtsträckt, men håller tyvärr inte formen när den är på utan rullar i sidorna. Synd! Mönstret är gratis och kan hittas här. Garn: Järbo Garn Soft Cotton


This bib design looks good when just blocked, but unfortunately doesn’t hold in shape when worn and just wants to curl at the sides. Too bad! The pattern is free and can be found here. Yarn used: Järbo Garn Soft Cotton

Happy new year! (2016 in review)

2016 har inte varit ett handarbetsår för mig, jämfört med vad jag brukar få gjort under ett år. Det har blivit en del små projekt och söta babytillbehör, och ett par större objekt har slunkit emellan!

Att vara gravid och få en baby har stulit mer energi och tid än jag någonsin hade väntat mig – oavsett hur förberedd du tror du är, kommer livet ändå komma och bita dig i röven! Och att flytta med en nyfödd? Oj … 🙂

Men även utmattad är jag så glad att ha min underbara lilla Kiwi. Han är min lysande lilla stjärna! Gott nytt år från oss båda – låt oss hoppas på ett fantastiskt 2017!


2016 hasn’t been a very crafty year for me, considering what I usually get done in a year. Lots of small projects and cute baby items, and a couple of larger items in between!

Being pregnant, and having a baby has been draining more energy and time than I ever expected – no matter how prepared you think you are, life will still come and bite you in the ass! And moving house with a newborn? Oh boy… 🙂

But even while exhausted, I am so happy having my gorgeous little Kiwi. He is my shining little star! Happy new year from us both – let’s hope for a fantastic 2017!
