The secret is out!

Here is what I have been working recently. This is a set of smalls for my friend Birgitta who posted on her Facebook profile asking if someone wanted a knitted set of gloves, a scarf and a hat by her. I jumped at the offer (her knitting is beautiful!!) and she asked for a biscornu in return since she has been reading my blog and watching my stitching for quite some time. Well, I thought that a biscornu was not enough for all that I was getting in return, so I decided to add to the gift for her. And here is the result.

Pattern: Freebie from the EMS site, adapted to fit the biscornu and fob but used as is in the scissor case.
Fabric: Pale gray 32ct linen from my stash
Threads: DMC #52 and Perle Cotton #8 in 553
Chrystals: Swarovski

So that’s it! I will post pictures of the gloves, scarf and mittens once they arrive to Reykjavík from the north!

And now I have some sweaters to knit! One for my cousin and one for Ben’s sister. So I better get to it!

  8. That is a lovely set of smalls. I love the purple. I think you have picked a very appropriate gift in exchange.

  9. Hello,

    a few months ago I saw your first smalls on here. I like them very much and now I want to make the biscornu for a friend of mine. The only problem I noticed is that the freebie is gone 😦

    Is there a chance you still have it and want to share it with me please? Four Little Hearts by Indigo Rose is the freebie.

    Thanks a lot, Babs
