Knitting and all

FullSizeRenderYou all might be wondering what is taking the hamster so long. Erm, well, it was knitting. Last week I had almost finished my first ever knitted cardigan. I was so curious how it would look (on me) that it became high priority to finish it as fast as possible. Only the button bands and collar had to be knit and without them the cardigan looked a bit small and unfinished.

The hamster Bamse, what a surprise I am calling him Bamse, which suits him much better because Bamse means little bear in Swedish, had to wait. Right now he is standing opposite me, missing one leg and having all his parts still pinned into his body instead of sewed. He is not a happy hamster yet.

I already bought yarn for a new cardigan, but I promise I won’t let it get in the way of my Popke design activities.


Next week Bamse should be finished. He is a rather cheeky little fellow.

  1. A cardigan as lovely as that requires a suitably serious pose, Sonja! It is great. (I’m trying not to picture the hapless hamster at the moment …..). xx

  2. This looks so cosy – very well done! Those cables are magnificent and would definitely have defeated me. Looking forward to our new little squeaky friend, preferably with all his limbs intact πŸ™‚ x

    1. Jan and Chris,

      The hamster has his limbs attached and he’s an adorable looking character. Thanks for your sweet comments about the vest.

      Happy Sunday πŸ™‚

  3. Oh good, I’m not the only one! haha. My crocheting of your patterns has slowed a little because….. knitting…. :). Looking forward to Bamse!
