Happy Easter

 

Happy Easter everybody!

I´m really loving this pattern.  I had to change the design of the baby sweater because couldn’t stop making the pattern. It’s even pretty the WS as you can see in the picture

  

My Easter has been a combination of wonderful food, laughter and outdoor activities with the family….. And knitting a lot of knitting but no pattern writing… oh well.

In publishing news I got the February Fancy hat back from my wonderfully talented tech editor Sarah and my friend Kristjana is test knitting it. The Thorra Cardigan is ready for tech edit but I’ve decided to knit it in another color to show the pattern more so that´s on hold until I’ve finished .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Progress

As an engineer I love AutoCad but that’s kind of overkill  and maybe not practical for knitwear design 🙂  

April started with this stitch pattern which I just can’t stop making and I’m thinking of a combo knit this time.  A baby cardigan and mittens for mum to match!  I’ve started on the mittens and really loving the how it comes out…. and ohh…I made a sketch.  Are you proud?!?

 

Good progress

After making a few mini shawls, which is addictive by the way, I finally decided on a pattern and boy am I having fun!  This is knitting up really quickly.  Really loving the way the textures of the Phildar.  Can’t wait to show you! My 4 year old really loved one of the mini shawls and used it all the time so choosing the right pattern was easy.

March Shawl

For March I went to my local yarn store Storkurinn.  I tried Phildar Phil Soft + yarn for the first time last summer and totally fell in love. It’s super light and delicious.  I just love the colors and the depth they bring. I also bought a skein of Brooklyn Tweed. I haven’t worked with Brooklyn Tweed but have wanted to for a very long time.  So I think it has to be in there somewhere to give the super light Phildar some weight.

I´m think a shawl this time around. A big shawl that you can wrap around your neck multiple times while you wait for spring.

Ohh and did I mention I´m going to Edinburgh Yarn festival this week with my mum and gran for my grandmother’s 80th birthday?!?  So so so so so excited!!!!!
