Yesterday the newest little person in my family got her name, Emma Rún. She is the daughter of my cousin Sigurjón and his GF, Elsa. When they were still pregnant, they asked me to knit the little girl a sweater and do a crochet collar to go with it. They sent me a photo of what they were thinking, and I did my best to grant their requests and this is what came of my needles and hook.
Pattern: Sweater is totally made up, based on a photo. For the collar I used Crochet Peter Pan Collar by Emma Escott
Yarn: King Cole Baby Alpaca DK
Needles and hook: 4mm hook and needles
I really loved making this one. And I love this yarn also and will definitely use it again.
Clue nr.4 of the Romi Hill MKAL came on Friday, and I knitted it up and finished it on Saturday.
I am continuing with my gradient plan. Now I have finished 3 different yarns and am up to my last one. First I used Hedgehog Fibers Sock, then Fjara and then Yaku. The last two rows are knitted with Madelinetosh Light and that is my final yarn. I am thinking I will definitely use the turquoise to bind off to tone with the details that came with clue 3.
The colour change for the Yaku looks pretty drastic in the photo, it is not this drastic IRL, the colours are just very hard to photograph propperly. I can’t wait to finish this baby and wash and block and take photos of it. Romi Hill is such an amazing designer, her patterns are incredible and I keep seeing new ones that I want to knit.
My inbetween clues projects are a new Lopapeysa for myself (I am working on the yoke now) and a cover for a foot stool that I got from my grandmother that is looking rather shabby. I am going to give it a make over and for the cover I am knitting on 10mm needles with Novita Tuubi in a very pretty retro yellow colour. I will post photos of it when I am finished, hopefully next weekend at the latest.
Karítas is now knitting! I am the proudest mom!
