Knitted in DROPS Puna and Istex Lettlopi. My first go with both yarns. This was an interesting knit, must say. But. The outcome just didn’t seem right. It’s not a relaxed sweater – for sure. She shoulders are just too slim for my taste. But the yarn is yummy. Soft and warm. I think i might knit this one again, maybe mix one size (on shoulders) with the M size body.

Knitted in DROPS Flora hand dyed by me. I had taken some time (2 years) off from dyeing yarn, just no time or space for it! Excuses. Anyway. This knit was such fun from the dye pans into the bind off. It fits comfy, like a slightly oversized college sweater and is airy but warm (by alpaca & wool yarn)

Two things one knit

Knitted in DROPS alpaca mix yarn. A comfy blouse with a very strange construction. Strange but easy to knit. Planning to knit another one with some lace maybe. More abt this knit at the Happy Kanto -blog.

There are some confusing Kitchener Stitch how-to videos in YouTube. At least to me! I had a rotten luck, until i found this Memorize the Kitchener Stitch -> i watched it well over 5 times, then drew the process and made a little mantra abt it, but.. i got it! 😀 Still not a fan of it – but the end result is one of the best!

This a super simple knit and has a ease & relaxed fit. I absolutely recommend knitting it!

Knitted in DROPS alpaca mix yarn. A comfy tunic. Used some wooden beads. I know.. “wood? what an imbecile” – but i wanted them wooden.. sweaters in my opinion are not supposed to washed in a heavy wash again and again. So.. the wooden beads are a perfect texture for this knit. And also.. i have given up 100% in using plastic in anyway in knitting. Yarn or additions. Ugh. No thanks.

Raglan in my opinion is the most easiest sweater style to knit. Thou with this i started from the hem – lately i’ve only knitted sweaters top-down hence them fitting better. And with this.. bottom-up sweater the sleeves did turn out about 5cm too long 🙁 darn. But! it’s for me and it’s comfy as DAMN 😀
