God Jul!

CRAFT ROOM DOOR GOD JUL

Hi folks!

Just wanted to drop by to wish you all a very Merry Christmas/God Jul/Feliz Navidad, Joyeaux Noel, Frohe Weihnacten, Noillag Shona, Buon Natale, etc, etc!

And on a Christmas theme, I decided to make a pair of festive legwarmers for myself – they were intended as a gift to someone else, but that didn’t happen, so I thought I would make up them up for myself – which is just as well, as I ruined the other red legwarmer, so now the sole one has become a Christmas decoration – and why not, after all, I make so many of them throughout the year! Winking smile

And with that, here are the new ones…..

RED VM JUL LEGWARMERS1

A perfect match for my pretty Odd Molly dress…..

RED VM JUL LEGWARMERS2

As you can see, the little crocheted bow matches the main colour of my sweet little dress…..

RED VM JUL LEGWARMERS3

It’s looking very festive in here right now……

RED VM JUL LEGWARMERS

I guess it’s fitting they’re staying with me, as they’re probably the last pair in this vibrant shade of red I will ever make, as the colour is very difficult on the eyes…

GOD JUL WREATH

So wherever you may be, have a wonderful time with your loved ones, and enjoy the day in the true spirit of the word!

See you soon! Smile




Store klemmer til dere alle!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year……

MARIA JUL VM PHOTOSHOOT JUL Ad

Especially when you look as pretty and festive as lovely Maria does! What a wonderful shot this is! She’s wearing a beautiful combination from Odd Molly, finished off my with sweet little ‘Vive Maria’ legwarmers, named in honour of us both! Smile

MARIA CHALK LEGWARMERS1

And here they are, made to go with the sweetest of knitted dresses from Odd Molly’s winter collection of 2011, one of my all time favourite dresses. As you can see, Maria’s pair of legwarmers are longer than the normal version I make, as she has beautiful long legs, lucky girl! Winking smile

MARIA VINTAGE CHALK AND RED 1

As you can see, the combination matches perfectly…..

Julen er her–well almost……..

ALPINE ANGEL JUL WISH
Well almost, but as another tune goes, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” and I am having my annual Julfest this weekend and the decorations are all in place, so it’s all down to the cleaning, cooking and glamming up then!

And as the weather is bitterly cold everywhere across Europe right now, it’s time to introduce these sweet little knitted accessories to you, which are part of my ‘Alpine Angel’ range…….

ALPINE ANGEL COWL1

My ‘Norge’ tre is looking rather nice also! Smile

ALPINE ANGEL COWL3

Firstly, let me introduce you to my new wrap around cowl, knitted in the most wonderful combination of alpaca and baby merino yarn and finished off with Swarovski crystals, very glam and very Lech indeed, it looks wonderful with my new ski jacket! Winking smile

ALPINE ANGEL HAT AD

And then the sweetest little beanie, also finished off with Swarovski crystals.

Well folks, if you’re going to be walking around Lech  apr├Ęs-ski, you need to look right! Winking smile

Hope you like them?!……

And with that, I’m off to do some more cleaning and food shopping, thanks for dropping by and wrap up warm and stay inside with a nice hot drink, as it’s cold out there – just the way I like it! Smile



Stor klem!

A days for hugs and thanksgiving….

MORTEN AND ME LIVERPOOL 06

Just dropping by to say ‘Happy ‘Hug a Norwegian’ day till alle mine Norske venner!

It’s been a while since I hugged this very famous Norwegian guy, and as I stumbled across this photo recently, it seemed fitting to post it here today!

Wishing you all a wonderful day, plus I’d also like to wish all my American friends out there, a very ‘Happy Thanksgiving’! Have a wonderful time with loved ones and enjoy your special day also!


Hugs to you all! Smile

And now for something completely different–Alpine Angels……

ALPINE ANGEL LEGWARMERS AD3

No, it’s not another ‘Monty Python’ moment, just the launch of my new little legwarmers, from my ‘Alpine Angel’ range……

ALPINE ANGEL LEGWARMERS AD1

A lot of ladies like my Vive Maria legwarmers, but don’t want to wear them so high up the thigh and recently I've had a lot of requests for what were my original style of legwarmers, which I used to call ‘fake socks’, so I've updated them a little and made them more pretty – as you can see here – they can be worn pulled up like this…..

ALPINE ANGEL LEGWARMERS AD2

Or my favourite way, which is slouchy! Winking smile

ALPINE ANGEL LEGWARMERS AD4

Pretty detailing….

ALPINE ANGEL LEGWARMERS2

Made of the softest pure merino yarn, they’re nice and delicate whilst keeping you toasty warm….

ALPINE ANGEL LEGWARMERS

These pretty mamas retail at £38.00 for the merino yarn, £40.00 for the cashmere/merino mix, and multi coloured varieties plus P&P as usual.

Watch this space for more knitted lovelies from my 'Alpine Angel' range - kommer snart! 

Ha en god helg!

Klem,
Mxx
