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.
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.
Happy June! Cannot believe this is our sixth month! We are half way there.
Stash busting, really looking forward to this one. I’m actually very diligent on giving away my stash to charity… but I ´m a bit more dingy on my more luxurious stash like hand dyed yarns or cashmere. So for june I ´ m designing a sweater that can incorporate as much or as little of your stash to make a beautiful sweater. Using all those little balls of yarn you just can´t find it in you to give away.
Photo shoot time. Maybe showing a bit to much but I hope Edda forgives me. My little alpha female does not hate the camera, can´t wait to show you guys more!
Things are looking so good this month, I got a sneak peak of Arndís´s dress on her snapchat (arndisprjon)… It´s awesome. I´m right behind her finishing the collar on my cardigan 🙂 🙂 🙂 … I have also been busy practicing my comic drawing, which gives me the same zen state as crocheting. Here´s a little strip with me and Arndís…
If you are having trouble sleeping because you really really want to see more then we show here of our current status you can add us on snapchat, “arndisprjon” and “eddalilja”. BUT, I have to warn our non icelandic audience it´s all in icelandic, for now at least.
I´m almost finished with both sleeves and I´m already thinking which colors to use in my next May cardigan, I´m loving it so much. I´m a bit empty of words right now, it´s the time of the year the tired teacher syndrome shows it self. All the comics you have seen of teachers fresh in the fall and grumpy at spring are true…
