tomtenspiration



this morning there was yarn in the mail. and that seduced me to swatch for my next tomten which is going to be yet another version. a tweedy leprechaurn irish tomten??? i love the wool and the bright happy yet broken green colour. the flecks almost look like carrot and emerald confetti. and i shall start it as soon as the fair isle is finished. it will be. next week. i am dying to experiment with this green and bobbly wonder.
as you can see i have tried out two different i-cord button-holes. that will be a nice addition. i will go for the lower one- the hidden i cord button hole. happy knitting.

  • I've never seen bobbles in garter stitch before. I like the effect! That green yarn is wonderful.

  • I love the bright greeny green spring color with shoots of carrot and basil. (What is it??)

    Just a thought - I used the hidden i-cord button hole for a sweater for a three-year old. The openings weren't obvious enough for the wee tyke. A few years older and it would have been o.k.
