Until recently, I did not realise I was a ‘blue’ person… but looking at my wardrobe, my knitting, even my kitchen ware, I am definitively a blue person.
So no surprise with my last knitting projects:
Pattern: Moss & Leaves Stole by Kerri Shank. Haven seen other projects, I think I should have blocked it a bit more aggressively.
Sampler shawl with beads knitted on. I don’t know why it took me forever to finish this project. I blocked the day before going to England in July. It’s a gift for Alice’s guardian. Now I’ve got some red yarn and I’m planning on knitting another one for myself.
Pattern: Dark and Stormy from Thea Colman
Yarn: Madelintosh DK (recycled from Effortless)
I recycled this yarn from a previous project, Efforless. I loved knitting Effortless, however the shape and the yarn did not work well together. The cardi became longer and longer and looked more like a shapeless mope. Furthermore, our cat had bit into the sleeves creating unwelcome holes. So I frogged it and worked on a cable cardi. This has been so much fun. The cable panel is very easy to learn but not boring at all. It’s a top-down, I love projects that don’t require assembling. I wonder whether I should knit one for myself.
I have more blues to show, but it will have to wait for another post.
