my True Friend

11/08/2017

Knitted in Isager Highland Wool and Knitlob’s lair Ilmatar. Wool meets silk. A beautiful pattern, easy to follow! Thou i decided to give the front panel some texture with very 4th row as a purl.

After a few months from bind-off and a lot of usage.. i accidentally put the sweater in a wash and now it’s a dish cloth/doll sweater. Oh well. This was a fun knit and the sweater had that relaxed light feel to it – that i might just knit this one again someday. Maybe add some extra with moss-stitch 🙂

something else to say abt this knit

As mentioned – a very easy knit, easy-to-follow pattern and i think my yarn choices were perfect – until it met 40c water in 1200 spin #rofl

This is a gift-knit for a traveling friend. Colors used were inspired from Finnish nature (and the yarn used is from Finland).

Pattern was a bit of a surprise i was doing good until i reached half way on the 3rd section. I got confused and went for a ravelry project gallery hunt to take a look at other knits from this pattern! 😀 I did not get the feeling from the pattern that the end of 3rd section would not reach the end of 2nd section 😀 I was running low on my MC (Itämeri) thou i thought i could make it 🙂 Anyway – viewing some other knits from this pattern it all made sense 🙂 (thanks ravelry -peeps!)

something else to say abt this knit

Another brainless knit. Am super happy with the colors i chose and the yarn! Oh! The knit has texture and some gloss (from Itämeri 50/50 silk-wool). My favourite from the three is thou Vänö Ull Lammull (finnsheep) the black-white texture is such a joy for sight and the fiber so soft. I hope Kerä will get/make more of this – i got the last once from a local fair. #sad
