FO: Humla baby cardi

Nästa nya design kallar jag för Humla! En liten kofta med öppen front, med detaljer i rätstickning och samma spetsmönster som Pärla. Snabbstickat i tjockare garn, här Malabrigo Mecha i färgen Dewberry.

My next new design I’m calling Humla, Swedish for bumblebee. A wee open front cardigan in bulky yarn, with garter stitch details and sharing the same lace pattern as Pärla. Here I’ve used Malabrigo Mecha, this time in colorway Dewberry.

Stripes! (Liv cardigan)

A planned project! My eyes caught on three yarns in my stash that I felt worked really well together. It’s all about stash busting, and it feels awesome!

Yarns: Malabrigo Rios in Water Green, Allegria Grande in Huarache, and Drops Air color 27. None of them are enough on their own, but together they will be enough for a striped cardigan! Right now thinking a Liv cardigan. I’ll cast on later when I’ve finished some other projects.

Cropped cardi

Had a nice cardigan pattern ripped out from a magazine, but no super bulky yarn to match. On a whim I just pulled four skeins from stash that worked good together. Resulted in a pretty beautiful swatch, eh? A great way to use up stash. Yarns are Drops Air (color 8), Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk (color 8), Madeline Tosh Merino Sport (colorway Gossamer) and a hand dyed skein from Garnlycka. Waiting on a new circular needle in the mail, then casting on!

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. 🙂

Marled Mania Cardigan

Raid i garnskåpet efter blandade rosa och lila för att göra Stephen Wests Marled Mania cardigan. Behöver använda upp lite av mina sock- och sjalgarner – har många ensamma härvor som oftast inte räcker till projekt jag vill göra.

Stash dive for various pinks and purples to make Stephen West’s Marled Mania cardigan. Need to use up.some of my sock and shawl skeins – have too many single skeins, which is often not enough for projects I want to make.
