It’s a good thing I sew, because if I had to count on knitting projects only to fill this blog, we’d still have a long way to go: I started this cardigan last May, which means it took me a little less than a year to finish it! It is not such a big project, and with US6/7 needles it knits up pretty quickly, but I am very irregular in my knitting habits. I still managed to finish it in time for Spring and I’m glad because it is great!
Knitting – Finished Objects
It’s been a long time since I talked knitting here! Actually, I finished this project more than six months ago. Just when spring started, so I could not wear it once. So now that I can finally give it a try I am super excited!
Last fall, my boyfriend asked me to knit him a scarf. Finding scarf patterns for men is hard: it needs to be interesting (visually, but also so I can make it to the end of the knitting part without getting too bored) but not girly, so most of the lace patterns don’t work. Browsing Ravelry, I stumbled upon the Meadowbrook pattern by Stephen West. I’m not a big Stephen West fan, as I find his style too excentric for my taste, but some of his simpler patterns have really beautiful details (I made a Windschief hat something like a year ago, I’ve never blogged it but I love the result).
Apparently I’m really obsessed with navy and red! After sewing my Belladone dress, I turned my nautical/patriotic calling towards knitting, with this vertically striped snood.
