This is Manga, one of my great colleagues. The felted jacket became slightly too felted (experiment too daring), but for Manga's small frame, it is perfect.

This fabric is from Jo-Ann fabrics in Ann Arbor. It is a shop I can spend hours in and never get bored.
Elin chose this fabric, so nice with some Japanese influence. The skirt has a stretchy knit waist, which hopefully will hang on the hips.

I wish all of you a happy New Year.
May it be full of joy and good health and visits to Vienna.
Those cushions I made over Christmas.
The Lion is a gift from my mom some years back.
I finally managed to make it into a cushion.

The knitting continues.
I have made a red, multi color jacket for Asta Margret who is now 7 months old.
It needed some decorating so some flowers were crocheted to embellish both front and back.
The gray jacket goes to little Johannes in Norway. He is only 2 months old but he sure will need a jacket for balmy evenings in Norway.

The blue vest is for Elin.
It is made with some remarkable soft mohair - wool mix.
An ideal thing to wear on a mild sping day.
The pattern is home made.
The little jacket is for Magnus, born in February. The size is more for February next year!
It is so hard to estimate when one is not working from a pattern.

Now with a new computer in the house I hope I will start posting more. I am busy with work, thinking about how to redesign the garden, planting seeds and such. I have made a few things for my great niece. She is getting to be 6 months this coming week. I knitted a little dress and a vest. Hopefully she can use it. I hope you are all well.

My daughter's boyfriend is an artist.
Not only a nice person but his illustrations are quite unique.
His style you hardly see anywhere else.
He has illustrated and written a book with some amazing pictures.
See some of his work on: Robb Johnston
I hope his book will be published.
