"Håndlaga 2011" Norwegian handmade championship


I'm participating, are you? You can, if you're a Norwegian crafter, that is. Click on the photo to see the blog.
Everybody can nominate, and you can nominate two items in each category, something you have made yourself, and something made by somebody else. All the items have to be published online, on a blog, on Epla ("Norwegian Etsy"), on Flickr, or somewhere else. You can read the rules here.


The organizers are Elisa Kolle from Lin & Papir and Unni Strand.


Thank you, ladies, this will be fun!


Here are my nominees:
(To nominate, you have to comment on the category on the "Håndlaga" blog, which I have done, I just thought I'd tell you about it here too.)

Category 1 - redesign


My "Birthday tunic" made for a friend last year. Read about it here.

I nominate the on of the dresses by Karin in 2jinter, MODELL: 2jK-023.







Category 2 - children

My Lullaby Love Blanket.

More photos on Flickr.

And to make sure I don't win this category, I nominate this blanket, by Pinneguri.




Category 3 - clothes
My Sparkle! cardigan, made last autumn. More photos here.

I also nominate a dress by Torill Vestad, from Cocoon Art, a local crafter, who makes the most wonderful dresses. (I'm the lucky owner of this one, btw...)



Category 4 - jewellery
I have made very little jewellery, but here is a necklace I made some years ago.

I also nominate this cute bird by Flowermouse Design





Category 5 - for your home


This is an old blanket I made 14 years ago, initially two baby blankets, later joined to cover an old chair.
And the competition is hard, look at this fantastic blanket by Solgrim, which is my other nominee in this category.



Category 6 - accesories



My Hippocampus mittens. More photos here.
Another pair of mittens, by "Knittnetty", Winterland.



Category 7 - picture


Not much to choose between there, here's the only picture I could find, made for a friend when she moved into a new appartment some years ago.
Have not decided on what else to nominate yet.



Category 8 - best craft blog


"You can nominate one item made by yourself, and one by someone else".


So, challenging the Jante Law, I nominate my blog.

And then I nominate a fellow knit blogger, Pinneguri, whit her blog "Med pinner".
