Deer&Doe’s fall-winter 2020 collection came out a few weeks ago, and as usual I’m showing you what I made for myself from the patterns. To be honest with you, I haven’t yet finished my version of the Acajou pants (I made a ton of muslins but none of them are wearable unfortunately), but on the other hand I have two Neige sweatshirts to present to you today, version A and version B! My first sweatshirt is made after version A of the pattern, with the regular length and the wide funnel collar. This collar is really my favorite thing about…
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.
Aaah Keflavik… The pretty name of this sweater unfortunately doesn’t come from the pattern or from the yarn, neither of which are Icelandic, but from where it’s been knitted. This is the project that was with me that time I ended up stranded in Keflavik aiport, trying to fly home from France, and I had to wait five long hours while the entire airport got evacuated and everybody had to go through security again. All of this because a plane landed at the wrong terminal… Typically the type of situations where I’m happy to have a knitting project with me!
