my Nuuk in stripes

21/01/2018

This t-shirt pattern was easy to follow and a great knit. So far i have finished two of these – all with some variations into the original pattern. Different neckline, longer sleeves, very long sleeves.

my Juniper in sunshine

The construction of this sweater is just genius. I knitted mine inside-out – taking the easier route. Am not a huge fan of purling, i’ll avoid it as far and long as i can. This was officially my first Juniper but as i ran out of yarn with this one – and couldn’t get the right shade from Finland.. i waited and waited. Put it on hold and knitted another one from leftovers 🙂

Fun fun knit! and weird – the sleeves  😀 just when knitting them felt like it made no sense that it would fit maybe a dog..? so wrong! 😀

shawls

my Fly Forward

The construction of this shawl is simply awesome – texture with ease. I used a one size smaller needle (4.0mm) to better complement my yarn. In my opinion there is an error in the pattern – to get some width to the shawl that is. I made some changes in mine.
