Ready set winter!

Well, it's not winter yet, but soon it will be, at least here up north. Woolen accessories are a necessity for those tiny people, as for all of us. I made this blue and brown set for my nephew last winter. Living far north, he needed something warm.

Ready set winter is perfect as a welcoming gift for a newborn child - or as a quick project for keeping your own baby warm. Those yummy ridges have lots of air trapped inside, so it will keep the baby warm in addition to looking good.

The pattern is for sale in my shop. The kit comes with a yarn choice, Alv or Superwash, where both are very soft yarns with lovely colors. The difference is that one is superwash yarn, the other is not. Alv is also thinner than Superwash, so with Alv, two strands of yarn are held together. I like both.

Tusen takk! Og settet lar seg meget godt strikke som barselgave. Det er fort gjort.
