Presents for my cousin

Yesterday my cousin finally received her birthday presents - her birthday is in january(...) - so now I am free to post the pictures here. I have been reading a lot about resin on Crafster and seeing all the wonderful things that other people have done with resin made me want to try it too. For a long while I had the idea of making my cousin a bracelet with pictures of her son Kelvin. My first idea was to make it with laminated pictures but then I realised that resin was the way to go. So this is what I did. And am quite darned pleased with it too for a first try!

A sweater for a little one

This is a sweater that I made from a book by Erika Knight. The swedish title is "Stickat och sött" (unfortunately the english title isn't printed in the book). It is in fact the first real garment that I have knitted (scarfs, mittens, socks and headwear doesn't count...) so YAY! me. I had the hardest time understanding the instructions though and I will blame the translation before I blame my lacking skills in reading knitting instructions. But I prevailed despite sometimes not knowing at all what the hell it was that I was supposed to do knittingwise and made things up as I went - thinking that it at least will turn into something approximating a sweater even if I didn't do every thing exactly correct. And I think it did so hurray for prevailing!

Now who to give the sweater to?...
