In the beginning of the year I pre-ordered Ysolda´s new book Little Red. This is the first time I´ve ever pre-ordered a book, and what a fun process! Laikia was the first pattern that was sent to us how pre-ordered a few months before the book was published. I wasn’t planning on knitting Laikia, I was more interested in Melina which I saw when Ysolda came to Iceland for a Knitting Iceland tour, but because I was so excited and I found out that handprjon.is sells Lorna Laces I just had to start.
The pattern is so fun to work with, so clever. Even the pages are perfectly planned so you can fold it twice and use it sufficiently.
I changed the pattern a bit, I skiped the hood because I didn´t know if I had enough yarn. Turns out that I did have enough but I don´t really like hoods anyway
The sweater is surprisingly warm and perfect design for us ladies who need to hide a few pounds around the tummy area… another great office sweater for the winter!
