Amandaprosjektet – Masker med mening!

Jeg leste denne artikkelen om vakre Amanda på Babyverden.no og har nå grått meg tom… Man får virkeligheten i ansiktet og man priser seg lykkelig over å ha en frisk datter men realiteten over hvor fort ting kan snu er helt ufattelig!

Amandaprosjektet – slik kan du bidra:

Hvorfor: Nyfødte – premature og syke – trenger å holde varmen skikkelig. Hjemmestrikkede (eller -heklede) plagg blir svært godt mottatt på nyfødtavdelingene. Helst i babyull, men alt er velkomment. Alle plaggene fryses før bruk.
Det trengs: sokker, votter, luer og tepper.
Størrelser: Fra de minste premature på en knapp kilo til fullbårne barn (som er født syke). Som mønster til de minste størrelsene kan du bruke dukkeklær.
Teppene skal være små, ca A3 (dobbel A4 ark/30X40cm). Teppene blir brukt oppå babyene for å lune dem, ikke for å pakke dem inn.
Levering: Du kan sende til Bjørg og Bjørn, så leverer de personlig til Rikshospitalet når de har samlet opp en del. Du kan også sende direkte til nyfødt- og barneintensiven på Rikshospitalet. Da oppfordrer Amandaprosjektet deg til å ta bilde av det du har laget og sende til dem på epost. Bildene vil bli lagt ut på nettsiden deres (uten navn).

Kontaktinfo: Amandaprosjektet har egen nettside: www.amandaprosjektet.org. Du kan sende epost til amanda-prosjektet@lyse.net, eller ringe 47501222 (Bjørg) og 46785271 (Bjørn). Amandaprosjektet har også en egen Facebookside: facebook.com/amandaprosjektet

I got me some Horsie! ❤

I have a girl – I know! But this colorway has been a BIG favourite of mine for a looong time and have been dying to get my hands on some.

Today it landed in my mailbox and I have to say it exeeds all my expectations and its sooo gorgeous in real life! I have to go deep in to my thinkingbox to figure out what this fabulous string should become.

>Skirted longies converted!!!

>

So almost a year ago, I got a pair of MM Malayan Orchid skirted longies off spots. They were stunning and I fell in love. Got them for DD and they were so cute. They did however not get the love they deserved – as you can see the skirt it self was just a bit to big for little DD at the time and they kind of pulled the longies down. She was so little at the time that the skirt was more in the way
I did love them too much to sell them on and when I took them out to try on DD again they were way too short

I ended up asking my mum what to do and we decided to convert them! (I know this might be like swearing in Gods house – but I loved the thing too much to let it go!)

Do you remember these, knit by KellyR? *pic borrowed from Ravelry*
