Spring Knitting

Happy Sunday! As spring is heading towards us with the speed of light and deadlines are growing and getting closer, I am trying to fit 10 minutes of selfish mindless knitting into my days, just because it feels good. This lush forest green baby alpaca is like the massage for the hands – feels incredible soft and silky. When I saw Wheat sweater in green color on @galt_houseofyarn account, I just wanted to recreate it in this color so badly. If you remember, I gave the original sweater to my friend, so this one is going to hug me 🙂

I also thought that it would be great to take some design details from the Heritage sweater and make something slightly different – so the shaping, sleeve cable and the body shaping are from Wheat and the central slip stitch chain and slip stitch raglan lines are from Heritage. So, basically I have two my designs on the needles 🙂 It is perfect for this yarn – lots of stockinette stitch knitting to enjoy these delicious skeins.

Apart from this project, I am playing with swatches in hand dyed sunny merino silk and brand new yarn by Knit One Crochet TooDaisy – a very interesting linen, silk and hemp blend, as soon as I get to know it better, I will tell you more about it.

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday and will have time today to pick up your needles! Thank you for being behind the screen!!

P.S. I am sorry I didn’t have a chance to write the post during the week and announce the winner for Vogue Knitting. The Ultimate Knitting Book. The random number generator picked Gigi! Congratulations, Gigi, you will receive your copy soon – I will contact you shortly for more information!
