I have not posted this week as I have been rather busy, knitting and such.
I have been knitting scarves, completed about fifty percent of a bag to be felted, and finished the majority of the Philosopher's Wool sweater sleeves.
I knocked this off last weekend. It is just a simple extra long cabled scarf out of Jo Sharp Silk Road. I loved working with this stuff so much I went and picked up some of the Silk Road Tweed and started a scarf for myself. This will be a little non Christmas present for a Dear Friend I hope you like this April! It is blue and cabled so it should fit the bill! Now I just need to get it in the mail.
I also worked on this felted bag for a bit. The pattern is called All Around Companion and it is a fun little felted bag. Mare did this bag a while back and I had to give it a whirl. I just loved hers. This one is in cascade 220 celery green and a very dark green. The nice boys at ThreadBear picked them out for me! I love felting, you never know what you will pull out of the washer!
Here are the sleeves for the PW fair isle, also purchased from ThreadBear.
I decided to leave the sleeves on this alone for a while as I need to knit up the body before I continue.
This sweater is for M, quite the strapping fellow, he has a 32 inch waist and his shoulders measure 50 inches. He has really long arms as well. I need to "end" the sleeves on a very specific section of the pattern chart so I want to see where the shoulder seems will fall on M before I go further with the sleeves. Does this all make sense?
Speaking of Mare , check out her site, I am excited about knitting this lopi sweater.
This is Astrid from the Best of Lopi. I have several ways I want to knit this sweater. More on that later.
All for now.......
