Hello Friends and readers,
Wow.. June already?? Where have May gone too?? I just can’t believe that 31 days of May just vanished from the calendar like that.. Oh dear… The Next few months as suggested by the meteorological center is going to be HOT here and I’m so not looking forward to that..
… May has been great fun as there were days where they brought in MORE rain.. heehee okie dokie… let’s get down into business here..
So as the title mentioned.. Yes, I’ve caught the knitting bug and have been happily knitting the past few days when outside has been pouring furiously… 😀
I’m happy to show you my end piece of the previous Knit Project. You may read more here.
Viola.. and it had become a Shrug. The Knitting Stitches are leaf pattern and works in multiple of (6 stitches + 4)
Row 2 & 4 (WS): Purl
K2* yo, sl 1, k2tog, psso, yo, k3; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2
(repeat rows 1-4 for pattern)
And the cool thing for Shrug, work to the length you are comfortable with and fold lengthwise. What I recommend is to measure your back and then the length you like for your sleeves to be. You can more on that here. Sew the two sides for sleeves, remembered to marked the length you want it to be. I usually sew an invisible seam using the mattress stitching.
And I’ve also started another project. I got this Soft Yarn on sale again and so I’ve bought 3 skeins x 100g. The pattern I got is from this awesome knit book by Kim Dolce~ Dolce Handknits
And I’ve been knitting this pattern~Charleston.
I love the lace work which will come up later 😀
This is the first time I chose this warm colours.. as you know, I usually go for lighter tones.. Maybe you got click on the picture to see the Wildflower Knots which I’ve knitted as below:
So far, I’ve finished the back and also right front. Can’t wait to tackle the Left and the Sleeves. The inserting bit comes later with the knitting of the Lace Panel. So I’m trying to get me hands quickly to knit that part 😉
Wishing you happy crafting wherever you are and
enjoy this lovely weekend :D.
