A special friend is having a baby and a shower on January 26. I had to wait until I was paid to buy the yarn and the pattern. I didn't just fall in love with any pattern. It had to be a set with a lovely figured pattern in Norwegian. That is not one of my languages.
I know my friend would love it. I think I have a way figured out. The same stitches are featured in a dress designed by the same person and it's offered in English! I can compare the two. There's also Google Translate and translation offered by DROPS. If I hadn't knit anything like this before, I wouldn't bother. I had some success figuring out a Japanese pattern.
I ordered the yarn from Webs which is in a nearby state. I've gotten their yarn quickly before. I wonder if I can really pull it off. Sometimes I can be too ambitious. I keep telling myself these are pieces for a tiny, little baby. I had better start printing the patterns and translating them.
I was close to figuring out the pattern, but I had a feeling there were construction details I wasn't picking up on. I decided on the Henrik Baby Set by Tove Richter instead that was in English. Reading it, it seems to have come from a Norwegian designer with the same sort of construction detail so maybe I can figure out the other pattern for the future.
