Midsummer Haze

Julkaistu 25 päivää sitten

Midsummer Haze was Joji Locatelli's contribution to Jyväskylä Summer Knit Festival:the pattern was a gift in the festival magazine. At first sight, I thought it was a nice pattern, but not my cup of tea. I admired the lovely Midsummer Hazes popping up on my Instagram feed and that was it. Later…

Julkaistu kuukausi sitten

The last round of Tour-de-Sock was a tough one. We knew beforehand that it would be four colors and quite a large amount of yarn. It turned out to be stranded knitting using four colors, which is still ok. The new thing here was jacquard floats, and these two combined made knitting slow. Very…

Tour-de-Sock, Stage 5: Accio

Julkaistu kuukausi sitten

The 5th round of Tour-de-Sock included plenty of cables with some beads. There were practically no repeats on the pattern, so you had to look at the chart on every single row. Not something you can carry around and knit a round here and another there... Pattern: Accio by Heidi Nick Yarn: Handu…

Mosaic knitting is something that was expected and feared on Tour-de-Sock. When stage 4 pattern was released, there was a collective sigh of relief: it's a lovely pattern! This pattern makes great use of mosaic knitting: you couldn't really achieve the same result with stranded knitting. Pattern:

Third stage in Tour-de-Sock included lace and cables and many options. Picot cuff or ribbing, decorative heel or Eye of Partridge, and even more options if you are not competing: ribbed or patterned instep. First choice is yarn, of course, and for me there were only two options: wildly variegated…

East Coast Girl Cardigan

You can knit all you want in all colors of the rainbow, but, let's face it, the items that you use most are black cardigans. That's at least what happens with knitted garments in my case. On my quest for the perfect black cardi, I decided to go with a circular lace yoke cardigan by Veera…

For the second stage of Tour-de-Sock, I was prepared to be competitive: it was my last vacation day so I could just sit at home and knit. But then it turns out that the start is at 8 PM and that kind of ruined my plans, because I can't stay up all night and knit. I surprised myself by staying up…

Tour-de-Sock, Stage 1: Fins

It's Tour-de-Sock time again! Last summer I swore that I would never do it again, but by May I was just checking the schedule and yarn requirements, matching my stash with the sock schedule and not going to participate at all, and before I knew what I was doing, I had signed up for the competition.

Knitting with Nancy

My choice from this year's class program at Jyväskylä Summer Knit Festival was Nancy Marchant's Grab bag of brioche techniques. I have a few brioche designs of my own, but that doesn't mean that I know it all. And if you can learn from the Queen of Brioche, I believe it's better to use the…

After Tour-de-Sock last summer I swore never to do it again (actually, reading my last TdS post fromlast summer, I swore never to knit socks again...). Nevertheless, by the time it was time to sign up I started thinking about all the fun (staying up later than is good for you, knitting socks that…

Quiet Folly socks

Julkaistu 3 kuukautta sitten

Quiet Folly pattern by Heidi Alander is simple and pretty. It's one of those patterns that I wanted to knit right away when I first saw it. Therefore, it was a natural choice when it was that time of the year: speed knitting for kindergarten teachers before their holiday starts. Good thing is that…

Rhombus socks

Rhombus socks by Cookie A remind me of the flowers you can draw with a pair of compasses. After looking up the word "rhombus" in a dictionary I realised that it's not flowers, quite the opposite! Either way, as we were thinking of which sock pattern to choose for Young Warrior's teacher, I thought…

Julia Mueller has the most spectacular glove designs I have ever seen. I started with Knotty gloves last spring, and as the third round in Lankakauppa Kerä's Head-to-toe-challenge was for wrist warmers (mitts, gloves etc) I knew that I wanted to pick another one from Julia's collection. With some…

Combining two-colour brioche with two-colour garter stitch, finishing with one-colour brioche and garter stitch. Throw in some short rows and i-cords, and it's a poncho. Or a cape. Or a cardigan. Or whatever, but it looks good and feels nice. This P-Rex by Susanne Sommer was one of my Indie Design…
