That is the question. After many disputes about it I decided to go against all objections because this cardi just yelled out for the zipper. I ´m not the biggest zipper fan for knit and crochet cardigans but this time I stand by my decision! I love it!
Tune in tomorrow for the whole results of June 🙂
I cant say I enjoyed this project, but mostly because of the time constraint. I am already looking forward to making a speckled/hue version of the cardigan later… (when I have time). Boy did it make a dent in my ever growing stash. I have so many little balls of luxury yarn that I just cannot bring myself to through away and this project used them all. The design consist of a slip stitch pattern, so your just working one color at a time, of two rows with three different color bases.
The main base: 2,5 skeins of lovely Einrúm, a lopi/silk blend as my base that I bought to make a sweater that I later scrapped.
second base: all sorts of fingering and sport white and off white yarn used in various baby projects.
all sorts row – grays, yellows and multicolored yarn mostly Madeline Tosh.
Tomorrow I have a photo shoot date with my lovely friend Vaka, cannot wait to show you.
I realised it this morning that I forgot to blog yesterday! This is what summer vacation does to you. But I’m almost finished with my June baby cardi …. I just need to decide on buttons or zipper or…
Can’t wait to show you more… my snapchat friends have seen it all though 🤓🤓🤓 (eddalilja)
Even though I’m working with a slip stitched pattern progress is slow. Just finished the second sleeve. Just the raglan to go. The July project is going to be amazing. There might be a sneak peek on our instagram account so stay tuned!
I hate to brake it to you, I started hating the June project and decided to throw it in a bag and start a new one. I´m not making the sweater I´m wearing in the Knit police…. I´m saving it til later. BUT the new one is awesome!!!…. Sorry Arndís, I know you told me to hang in there but I just could not have it in front of my face for a second longer!
Here is a photo of the old one, the new one and the yarn I´m using next in the new one.
An extremely exciting month…. I love using my stash, because I have an awesome stash, the first issue of The Knit Police is ready and we have a Knitting festival weekend ahead of us 🙂 🙂 🙂
The best part though is…. wait for it….. I´m wearing the June cardigan in the first issue of The Knit Police!
P.s. these skeins are only the first ones I have chosen…
