Close To the Finish Line

Last time I showed you a fair isle I’m knitting using pattern charts from Wilma Malcolmson. I’m now close to finishing!

The pattern I’m working from is for a square-neck pullover. I have far more use for cardigans than pullovers (assuming I ever leave my condo again) so I adapted on the fly. I think it is turning out well!

So does Loki.

New Year

A belated Happy New Year . . . such as it is. I sort of fell out of the blogging habit. It’s a funny thing — the longer we are on lockdown and I have more free time,. the less I feel like blogging. What’s up with that.

To catch up . . .

I finished Luskentyre a couple of days before Christmas.

And I started another fair isle:

This is a design by Wilma Malcolmson. The pattern is not in Ravelry — it was published in the Swedish magazine Stickat & Sånt. The pattern was designed as a pullover but I am converting mine to a cardigan. I’m using Jamieson Spindrift Shetland.

And of course Loki is helping.
