Good, productive day yesterday on our field trip, but very tiring. Consequently, not a whole lotta knitting progress last night.
But I did make a good start on the front of Lizzie:
Here’s a close-up of the big-ass cable running up the front:
Like I mentioned before, this is a fast, fun project to knit!
Someone mentioned in the comments yesterday not being able to find the Laughing Lizard yarn anywhere other than Knit Happens. Laughing Lizard is Knit Happens’ own brand of hand-dyed yarn. An exclusive!
Another comment yesterday asked what my next big project is. This:
Remember the swatch knitted from Koigu I showed you the other day? Well, I cast on for what it’s going to become: Ingrid. Another WendyKnits original design.
I’ve always wanted a Swedish sweater, but there are very few patterns around. I designed this sweater using motifs based on a traditional Swedish design. I’m using a very plae green Koigu (color #2331) for the background color and a variegated brown/olive/green Koigu (color #P315) for the foreground.
It’s knitted on a 3mm needle at 8sts/inch.
Nope, I didn’t gave it an “L” name. Ingrid was my Swedish grandmother’s name.
And hopefully I’ll have a bit of progress into the pattern to show you on Monday.
Lucy sez . . .
Relax this weekend!
