color affection

05/03/2017

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

a Metalouse Shawl

08/02/2017

Knitted from 100% wool. I started this knit with Auracania Botany Lace first – but the color changes were just too wild and short that i thought ill of for this knit. Too busy. So i went for 2 solid colors.

Corrugated ridge (what a .. i had to PURL! 😀 *whine*)

something else to say abt this knit

This was an easy knit – but for the beginning getting into the flow of a corrugated ridge took some warming up. After a few rows it was easy to follow – where i was and only had to unravel once .. over MC change.
