Summer sweater - second sleeve

Just finished the second sleeve for my summer sweater. Only some sewing and some weaving in to do now

One sleeve down, one to go.



And i finished the key hole back by crochetting a border and covering a button in crochet work.

Quick update: I finished the front and back panel and knitted the neck line in picot edging.

Finally reached the arm holes and neck line for the front panel of my new summer sweater. It seems to be going well :) I'm still trying to decide what i should do with the sleeves, short, 3/4 or long... Lets finished the front and back panel first ;)

Wow! It almost feels like Christmas!

I received my new yarn order today from Drops. They had a very good sale, so I ordered a lot :)

Makes me HAPPY :D

Opening the box...

...and finding some Drops Safran in red...

... and grey/blue.

And for the winter some Drops Fabel in black...

... red...
... and pink multicolor for some socks.

And i couldn't resist getting some super soft Baby Merino in blue.


I don't know whether i'll find the time this year to finish all my planned projects, but at least I have the yarn to do it :D

A quick update on one of my new projects! I'm knitting a cotton summer sweater from Drops Safran in red. I chose to use a simple eyelet lace pattern and the design is similar to a short sleeved sweater I found on Google. This design also had the picot edging, which I never used before. I found a tutorial online and was surprised that it was rather easy! I'm knitting the front and back panel simultaneously to make sure that it wil fit :D



I'll keep you posted!

New FO: Glitter cardi

I just wanted to share an update on the glitter cardigan that i showed you earlier. It's finished! I chose to use a zipper instead of buttons, and I like the end result. I've worn the cardi a few times now, and i really like it. It still have the same type of yarn in my stash (blue) and i'm planning to knit a plain garter stitch winter sweater with it. I'll keep you posted!
