January Progress

Sweater Knitting Pattern. The Gift Of Knitting.

Happy Thursday! My January projects for Moeke yarns and for YOTH are starting to take shape not only on my needles, but also on the paper. Those two pieces are so different in construction, texture, yarn and overall look that it can be overwhelming to keep all the details in the head, but I actually enjoy switching between each of them when I get stuck with the wording or the number or the logic. Moeke project is very rich in texture and full of little construction details. I stopped in the middle of the sweater to block it to check the gauge and the overall look. So far it is working out exactly as my initial idea.

Fog is a relaxing knit with small texture details. It is so addicting to knit that it took me all my will power to stop and actually write down the steps. I push myself to finish the first draft for test knitters for next week, so if you are interested in a test knit, let me know in the comments or check my IG page for the updates!

At the moment Fog is moving on to the blocking stage, excited to see how the Father yarn will open up, I had a great experience working with it!

Hope you are all having a wonderful week! I’ll see you on Sunday!

Moeke Love

Moeke Yarns. the Gift Of Knitting.

Happy Sunday, friends! Hope you are enjoying the holiday frenzy! A quick update from me šŸ™‚ While I am working non-stop-no-days-off at my day job, trying to get everything done by the end of the year, there is one project that I am so enjoying working at when I crush at my couch at the end of the day šŸ™‚ Ioana from Moeke Yarns were kind enough to offer me a very interesting design challenge to show off Elena yarn at its best. After working with Moeke on so quiet a few projects, I seem to “know” the yarn well enough to get the best of it, hopefully, in the wearable form.

I missed its rustic feel, natural smell and muted undyed natural shade. The sweater is growing steadily and I am trying an unusual construction that will be both wearable and fun to knit. Looking forward to showing you more in 2019!

In Fog

Textured Cardigan Knitting Pattern. The Gift Of Knitting.

Happy Wednesday! Have you already been taken over by the holiday frenzy? I still haven’t done my proper Christmas planning, but some lights, candles and chocolate are definitely on my list. It is almost two weeks to Christmas, but I am so looking forward to it! I have just one day off at work, but I decided to make the best of it! Walk in the morning, get my matcha latte in a favorite cafe, read, knit and have dinner with friends.

I have so much knitting going on behind the scenes, I haven’t been sharing much of it as often I have to choose between taking photos and knitting; and as much as I love creating my mini yarn photostories, I have been craving for just knitting at this point.

I am looking forward to sharing some beautiful projects and collaborations with wonderful women in the year to come!

Have a wonderful day today!

Amber. Textured Sweater Pattern.

Textured Cable Sweater Knitting Pattern. The Gift Of Knitting.

Amber sweater pattern is live on Ravelry! Thank you so much for your patience, I’ve been back and forth editing the pattern file, changing things, just to make sure that you will have everything you need to knit this sweater worry free.

Amber is knit on 6 mm (US 10) needle, so by the time you are done with the second cable repeat, you will be binding off the sweater body. It makes the whole process more engaging and keeps things fresh.

Because of the nature of the cable, it looks different depending on the angle – whether it is a diamond shape formed on each side, or an hourglass on the front, or simple cable twists on the shoulder. That is my favorite detail of this sweater.

The fabric created by Daughter is soft, holds the shape greatly and has a nice flow to it so even a heavily textured sweater won’t look bulky.

Stages

Textured Sweater. Knitting Pattern. The Gift Of Knitting.

Happy Sunday! The weeks are flying by, my schedule is getting busier and busier, but there is always time for knitting. I caught myself that right now I am enjoying three stages of the sweater knitting, each of them I love in its own way.

Amber is done and in the hands of my technical editor who is helping to perfect the pattern for the publication. This stage is always exciting, you see your idea come to life exactly as you envisioned it and you actually put it down in the written form! Oh, and you get to wear the sweater, that you already love so much!!

Textured Sweater. Knitting Pattern. The Gift Of Knitting.

Fog is in the process, the structure, the math, the logic, all is very clear in my head and right now I just need to make sure that it translates well into the knitting process.

Chocolate is in the experiment/swatch stage when I get to know the yarn better and test ideas from my notebook I keep updating almost every day with the knitwear dreams šŸ™‚ Lots of ripping off at that stage, but I know it is going to be worth it when I catch “I HAVE TO knit this” moment.

I am off to work and I hope you will share with me what’s your favorite sweater knitting part!

Have a wonderful day today!
