It’s been a long time since we saw some knitting around here! So here’s my Rosa cardigan, finished last August. The pattern is by Along with Anna: it was my first pattern from this designer and I found it very fun to make, with clear instructions. It’s a very easy pattern that I would recommend for a first cardigan: knitted seamlessly from top to bottom, with a simple lace detail at the raglan. I really like the shape of the neckline which allows it to be worn open, as opposed to a round neck cardigan whose corners always flop down…
Do you remember my experiment with dyeing yarn with flavored drink mixes? Two years later, I finally knitted something with that skein!
A Christmas sweater in April?! I know, it’s weird, but I finished this sweater a few months ago and since I already had taken pictures of it and I finally had some time on my hands waiting at the airport, I really wanted to post about it instead of having to wait until next Winter 🙂
For New Year, I took a week off and went on vacation to the beach. In December it’s definitely cheaper than going skiing, but when it’s below freezing there’s no way to go for a swim. So since I had time to spare I took advantage of the occasion to take pictures of my new hat!
Boston is covered in snow, the holidays are gone, and spring won’t be here before a few months. This is the season each year when I start hibernating, which for me means hot chocolate, knitting, and binge watching TV shows. And since I’m getting back in the swing of things, I dug out my UFOs, and I finally finished this Chuck sweater that had been waiting for quite a while.
