September is the month of new beginnings, organizing and so on. Now I´m trying to tame myself to writing the pattern before crocheting. It´s so freaking hard…. but ohhh will it be worth it! I even started sketching before writing 🙂 … I´m taking things to the next level.
I´m a little worried, starting work and painting my house has taken a lot of my time lately. I´m still working on the second sleeve with only a week to go… I haven´t even decided how to finish it…. and I´m using a 2.5 mm hook!
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.
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!
This month we both have summer vacation so we decided to treat ourselves 🙂
We asked our favorite Icelandic dyer, Vivid wool, if she was willing to participate and of course she was. We sent her the photo of July and she made us this beautiful hand dyed yarn inspired by the photo… So GAME ON!
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 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.
