For Halloween I had lots of nice projects in mind that I wanted to make, but after discovering a great Etsy Pattern Store called The Velvet Acorn, knitting fever came over me and all planned projects had to give way.
The first thing I made, is this one for my youngest daughter, called the Azel Pullover.
We're in november already and in just a couple of weeks Sinterklaas (also called Saint Nicholas) will arrive here in The Netherlands. Three weeks after his arrival we will celebrate his birthday, the occasion where children will get lots of presents from the old man (bought by us, the parents, of course).
In preparation of this happy day I started this week by making some home made presents for my daughters. My youngest daughter, who is seven years old, always is 'into something' and currently it's (you would never guess this) unicorns!!
Last week I showed you a pullover that I made for her, from a pattern by The Velvet Acorn, and in the same Etsy store I found a great, original pattern for a Unicorn Hat, that's also a shawl.
Now that I found my daughters's Perler Beads again, I became so enthusiastic that I've put away my knitting projects and made a real work of art for Christmas. I've decided that I don't want to have a large Christmas Tree in my living room this year, so I was searching for other decorations to make the room look festive and then I found this pattern. www.betweennapsontheporch.net
Not my design, by the way; I lack the patience to design things as big as this piece. I found this idea here.
