Still Light and a Lopapeysa FINISHED!

Yes, I have two finished projects to show you. First of all, I was asked to knit a little traditional Lopapeysa for a friend who wanted to give it to his little cousin. I have basically stopped knitting for others except every now and then since there are just so many projects I want to do for me and mine. But this particular pattern is exactly something that was on my to-do list anyway. And I am happy with the outcome.

Yarn: Léttlopi from Ístex

And then I finished Still Light Tunic by Veera Välimäki. I absolutely love it. I washed and blocked it on Saturday and was wearing it all day yesterday. It is such a great pattern, and I love the color and the yarn and just all things combined. I am already planning another one, even if it is knitted on 3mm needles. Don’t care, I want more of these!

Right now I am working on Brownstone by Jared Flood for a friend of mine. I am knitting it out of Rowan Felted Tweed in grey and it is turning out wonderful. Already have the first sleeve done and started the second one that I will probably finish tonight. Can’t wait to get to the body, not a fan of knitting sleeves!

We have had a quiet Easter here. Went to my grandfathers summerhouse on Friday for dinner and family hang out and board games. The girls enjoyed playing outside and going to the hot tub. I mostly stayed inside and knitted and chatted with the family. Back to work tomorrow, and I have a busy week ahead. Wooohoo!
