The cardigan is coming along smoothly but boy can it be difficult to knit a thick Lopi (not even lopi light) cardigan in August. First of all, it´s not really portable because of the shear size and weight of it and second… it´s so so so warm. But soon it will be winter and I will be thankful that past Arndís was smart enough to knit a super warm cardigan BEFORE winter came.
I started this cardigan a few (I wanna say months but it really is) years ago. I had not developed my snob for yarn then so the lower half is much cheaper then the rest of the cardi 😀…
…. and I can’t stop making cardigans! I just can’t stop!
I can’t imagine going through this year without knitting a Lopi cardigan. I’m using 7mm knitting needles and plan Alafoss lopi with a intarsia twist. Can’t wait to show you guys more!
Maybe I have the name already… Colorful, cute name for a colorful cardigan…. Iv´e been very busy today calculating decreases for The Librarian (May´s cardigan), tidying up my yarn stash and my living room. Finally I found some time to write a few words and I decided I had to show you my current work space, it´s so comfy. Here is a little sneak peak of the cardi “Colorful” with a view over my work space at the moment.
Finally I am able to publish February Fancy. See link here.
I have been out of range since Monday on a 5 day hike in the north parts of Iceland a total of 42 km. It was amazing, horrifying and everything in between. I feel like I can do anything now.
I have decided to finish a cardigan I started a few years ago because it suits those months photo perfectly and I have to often been asked if there will be a pattern available. It’s also the perfect stash busting pattern. There will be no photo of the project for now since I’m on my way home from the hike but I will give you a few photos from my week!
