Sorry for the silance but there has been knitting! Here´s the first project:
I found this project on ravelry. It´s my first twist collective purchase. Dangerously easy but you are not able to keep the pdf. in your ravelry library which is a bummer. The designer Anne Hanson is wonderful, you can read about the pattern on her blog.
Pattern: Leaving by Anne Hanson
Yarn: Fiber Optic Yarn Casmire (bought at Rhinebeck, sheep and wool festival in NY)
Model: My wonderful sister inlaw Sigríður Hrönn.
The yarn is amazing! I bought two skeins at Rhinbeck and when I got home I decided I wanted to make a sweater. I contacted Kimber at Fiber Optic Yarns and she sent me 5 skeins of the yarn and I sent her back the two skeins I bought from her at Rhinbeck. Super service I cant´s recommend her enought! The yarn was amazing… amazing, so soft, so fun to knit. The small changes in color really make the sweater flow.
I love the little details like the sleeves.
I hate sewing with a passion so I knit both the fronts and the back in one piece, and the sleaves in the round. This made for some interesting blocking! I bought blocking wires at handprjon.is that really helped alot.
I love the sweater, perfect for the office.
More coming soon!
