Needed a new simple knit, so CO for an Origami sweater yesterday. Isager Silk Mohair and Allegria merino, striped with Schoppel Wolle Edition 3. 😊
Got inspired after looking at some lovely crochet designs by The Moule Hole on Instagram. Besides the yellow baby blanket it’s been a long time since I did any crocheting. Decided to start up a Jane Jacket using stash yarn. At first I tried the multicolored combo up top, but the beautiful colors sort of disappeared in the mohair. Fortunately I had the perfect shade of purple Mini Maiden from Handmaiden, to match the Onion Wool + Nettles, and Hobbii Diablo.
Wanted to make changes, both to the lace itself, and its placement. CO another vest from the other end of the skein – made it easy to choose!
Parenting. Despite the rain, still going to the playground with your 3 year old. Always bring your knitting!
Voila! My little girl is an amazing model – here showing off my new tunic Skymning! Time to get my notes deciphered and the pattern test knitted. 🙂
Realized that my more recently purchased skeins of Malabrigo Worsted was way off the normal gauge, way too thin. So, had to start over with another one. Here going strong with colorway Polar morn.
Pullover tunic with lace panels in the making!
Time to get back to blogging again! What better day than on my birthday? Just made a banana split cake for todays dinner 😊
Here casting on for a new design with Malabrigo Worsted in colorway Applewood. Gorgeous!
Need to figure out where I’m at – what I’ve posted on the blog, what not. Not to mention descipher notes and write the patterns for the new designs I’ve made. Time and energy is low. Preparing for moving house this summer. Much to do, preparing to sell our old place.
Meanwhile, from older days. A baby set made for me by my grandmother. 33 years old!
I am alive. Playground knitting today. The whole family has been sick in January, so feeling pretty exhausted. Working on an experiment (an adult vest for me), and looking forward to see how it turns out. Planning on releasing some new free patterns soon, too!
