Scrappy blanket

Blanket in progress! I’ve shown you something similar before, with this scrap yarn blanket. That one is resting for now.

I work simple garter stitch strips, seaming them together when finished. Combining colors are as much fun as the knitting itself! Here I’ve collected all scraps and odd skeins in red, pink, brown and orange/ dark yellow.

I’m combining threads to get a bulky weight, and working on 8 mm needles. Such an awesome way to use up some stash yarn! I’m using several “boring” skeins here that looks much more fun combined in a color palette like this. 😊

The palette is very similar to what I used for my Marled Magic mystery shawl.

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!

Hipp, new design in progress

Yay! Jag fick inspiration till en tredje ny design, som jag kallar Hipp! Denna gång en lite mer flickig väst eller ärmlös topp.

Garnet är Malabrigo Rios i härligt brunrosa färgställning Illusion.

Yay! I had inspiration for a third new design! This time a more girly pullover vest or sleeveless top. I’m calling it Hipp!

The yarn is Malabrigo Rios in pretty pink/brown colorway Illusion.

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.
