It’s time for photos. So that you don’t think that I have been sitting around, doing nothing :) Of course I did not.
As said – autumn is here and colder days also. Well, I have been exaggerating a bit in my worries that Tamara doesn’t have nothing warm to wear,because frankly, it’s not that cold…
Luckily, I have some Eskimo yarn in my stash, so this is the result:
Knitting with Eskimo is really a pleasure – it’s soft, warm and thick i.e. – the result is quickly visible. I finished this cardi in two afternoons. The original model also has a hood, which I omitted, because there are too many hoodies in Tamara’s warderobe already. I also did not knit with 9 mm needles, I used 6 mm, because I like a firm(er) consistency of my knitting than most of the knitting that results by using the suggested needles usually are.
Also, I made another pair of fingerless mitts for a friend who cycles to work. It’s autumn and she’ll need them in the foggy, crisp Ljubljana mornings. You remember I made almost the exact version a couple of weeks ago, huh?
And on my needles is a cardigan for Seconda. I chose Mirabela yarn (producer: Unitas, Croatia) in red and pink. The body will be pink and the button bands will be red. Also, it is my intention to crochet red border around neckline, bottom of the sleeves and body. I stopped working on it so that I could make the Eskimo cardigan for Tamara and now I cannot get into mood for knitting with this thin yarn ;) Also, the size is for 6 months (Norwegian babies, I assume – this means she’ll probably be wearing it when she’s one year…), so I still have some time to finish it. ;) No, no… I am not doing that. This is the project I am going to finish next, because than I’ll start working on something for me.
And you remember Vapour, project “for myself” – here’s a link to post about it. Well, no wonder I wasn’t too satisifed with it! I didn’t know I knit it for pregnant me, not normal me ;)) So, here’s a photo of me, modelling Vapour three weeks and a half before my due date.
