I hope everyone is enjoying November. If you are getting together with friends and family for the holidays, please enjoy the time spent together
I completed the Nimbus cardigan last week and even worn it a coup,e of times. I want to knit this pattern again but the next time I plan to make it longer at least below my hips. I may add a lining to it as well. I just added a photo.
I started the baby gift. It will be a cardigan as well but I’m using some slip stitches for the body since my yarn is variegated. I hope to have some pictures soon.
Hello thanks for stopping by again. I realize that I’m a seasonal knitter. Warn snuggly knits for the fall and winter and cool flowing knits for the sspring and summer. I got a few WIPs on needles. My primary project is the Nimbus cardigan by Berroco Designs. It was has been easy to knit, there is a 4 inch border of garter stitch and the body is stockinette. This is my first time that I will seam a sweater just six pieces-back, left and right front, sleeves and a collar. I’ve knitted other sweaters and cardigans before but always in a Ragland or top down. The yarn I’m using Cascade Ecological Yarn in silver colorway. I’ve used this yarn for another project so I enjoy working with it. I should have enough left over of another small project. I brought the yarn before I choose the project. I can’t help it. I go to store and the yarn just starts calling my name. but I don’t think I’m the only one that has this happen to them. I’ve noticed that I am gravitating to grey/silver.
I have a baby gift that I need to complete before the baby arrives. I trying to work through my stash. I’m thinking of using Cloudborn Highland Superwash Sock Twist Handpaints in the strawberry fields colorway. I realized that some of the yarn in my stash is not my color choice. Either the colors though pretty are not necessarily my color choice. This is bright a cheery color that all babies need. Although, the sweater will be a Ragland. I can’t decide if I want to use some lace detail or let the striping be the star.
So what are WIP, please share and come stop by again.
