scandinavian tomten in progress.
here is my 2nd tomten in progress. my little friend alba is getting baptized (???) next month and the young mother thought a white tomten would be the loveliest thing to be christened in. it is worsted weight merino wool and the edgings are going to be a very fluffy white angora. i am going to buy some very cute buttons and maybe add a knitted flower or some leaves on an i-cord to the hood. very different from the tomten she uses every day in brown rowanspun. but a girl deserves nice clothes to dress up to the occasion. no matter if she is 46 like me or 6 months like alba.
the bowl is made by alba's papa of wood from trees in my favourite park in copenhagen and it is meant to keep my knitting in.....
