do you have something for me to knit?

My mother asked me that question when she visited in January.. Sure! I always have thousands of planned project, pick anything you like!
She ended up knitting this jacket, which I've planned for ages. But I really didn't find the time to start it.. Luckily she did. All I had to do was to sew on the buttons, which are vintage metal with little cute "stitches" on to make them look like leather.
Hopefulle the jacket will fit Elina next spring and summer, it's a little to big for her now. It's rather heavy, about 200 grams and is knitted on needles 2,5 mm which makes it rather compact as well. Maybe that's a good thing in windy Bodø.
Sorry about the picture! The program I use to fix them didn't start... SO annoying!

Hihi, I put this jacket out on Ravelry before I blogged about it, and when I'd finished the blog update, I saw that 4 people had viewed the jacket, and all four of them had put it as a favourite! Fun for mom!

Nydelige farger sammen! Jeg har strikket den samme jakka, dessverre i tiden jeg trodde jeg strikket stramt. Den er vel str 4 år og gyselig?
