Some finishes

This is a a rather disorderly post about some projects I've finished at the end of 2016 and what I'm working on now in the beginning of 2017. Usually I'm posting about one subject. 
Because I was so busy I didn't have time to write about my crafts. 
So here you go...

I finished a cardigan for myself.
As you can see I chose for this moss-green color while it was autumn.
Yarn: Rennie supersoft shetland lambswool
Pattern: Marsa Alam by Isabell Kraemer

My son's girlfriend didn't have mittens knitted by me. So I had to do something about that :-) 
Yarn: drops Lima
Pattern: from the book I can't believe I'm knitting mittens  (love this book)

A baby boy was born in our street. I wanted to add a little gift to the postcard.
I knitted these wee socks and a sweet teeny tiny bunny.

yarn: drops alpaca 
pattern: Wee socks by JM Cobb (ravelry)

yarn: Holst garn supersoft.

And what I'm working on now? ... in the beginning of 2017.
I frogged a cowl I knitted years ago for my daughter. It was too wide. 
So I decided to knit it smaller. I love the yarn. It is Katia merino tweed. 

  My daughter with the cowl in 2013 (way too wide so she doesn't wear it a lot)

Actually I'm a quilter who is knitting.....

This is in my hoop right now. It's a quilt for a lovely little girl. I hope to finish it soon.
