Love Note sweater

Another started project in my knitting basket! I got a bit crazy about casting on new sweaters for a while there, hah! Here we have a Love Note sweater, using hand dyed sock yarn (with glitter!) from Limmo design, together with red fluff, Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk. The white is taking over more than expected; I was thinking something more pink… but oh well 🙂

FO: Pärla

Tada! En av mina två (kanske tre) kommande nya mönster, Pärla. Jag har använt Malabrigo Mecha i färgerna English Rose och Natural. En kort övertröja till en liten klänning, sömlös, stickad uppifrån och ner och med ett sött spetsmönster. Mönstret teststickas just nu.

Tada! One of my two (maybe three) upcoming new designs, Pärla (Swedish for “pearl”). I’ve used Malabrigo Mecha, a bulky yarn in colorways English Rose and Natural. A cropped pullover shrug to wear over a wee dress, seamless, topdown and with a cute lace pattern. Perfect to wear over a wee dress! Pattern is currently being test knitted.

Toasty warm

Managed to make some good progress on this one when I had a rare couple of hours to myself. This is an older free Drops pattern, here working on the back piece. I’m using Malabrigo Mecha in colorway Polar Morn.

As usual I don’t like how Drops patterns are written, but I like the simple design of this vest and it should be a pretty fast project to finish. This will be perfect to keep them boobs warm this winter. 🙂

FO: Kulan pullover

Den här var lite utmanande för mig. Jag är inte jättevan vid flerfärsstickning, och har svårt att hålla trådspänningen jämn. Stickade nog om oket minst fyra gånger. Till slut blev det rätt hyggligt. Mönstret är svenskt och gratis; Kulan pullover. Jag har använt favoriten Malabrigo Rios i färgerna Purpuras, Glitter, English Rose och Arco Iris

This one was pretty challenging for me. I’m not super skilled at knitting with many colors – I have trouble keeping the tension even. I think I redid the yoke no less than three or four times. Finally it turned out quite decent. Pattern is a free Swedish design called Kulan pullover. I’ve used my favorite Malabrigo Rios, in colorways Purpuras, Glitter, English Rose and Arco Iris.
