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.....



  • My husband makes wooden bowls, too and has made me a lovely one for my yarn- I need to photograph it for my blog...lovely posting...

  • I look forward to seeing your Scandinavian Tomten; the white merino edged in fluffy angora sounds lovely!...so appropriate for the baptism of a baby girl living in the land of the Northern Lights.

  • What an honor to be asked to knit a baptismal garment! Better check, it might need to be pure white for the ceremony, maybe you could add the flowers later. It all sounds so pretty.

  • The bowl is gorgeous. And I bet that the tomten will be too. I hope that you will be able to post one or two photos.
