Wow it’s been quite a while since I’ve actually done a knitting update! In fact I’ve just been doing a mass update on Ravelry, because I haven’t really been paying attention to it for.. a year now? Quite a few projects that I had listed as in progress are actually finished. (In fact I had updated some as 100% but not as finished yet, because I hadn’t gotten around to taking photo’s, I have FINALLY done that!)
Now let me just say ahead that I’m not happy with some of these photos. 1) I need to find a new pose when doing tops. maybe just have my arms straight, I don’t think hands on hips work. and 2) need to get hubby to not have the camera so zoomed in, I mean its not awful just means I don’t have much to work with when I’m editing the picture….
So here goes:
Pattern: Vivian by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Louet Riverstone Chunky
Took me a long time to sew the zip on once I’d actually finished knitting it, I finally did that back in December, only now taking photos! For the most part I really love how this came out. I just wish I’d read someones note about how they added more stitches to the arms to make them a bit wider, as their actually quite tight. So can’t easily wear this over other clothes.
Pattern: Backward Cable Pullover by Wendy Bernard
Yarn: Rowan RYC Silk Wool DK
I don’t like how this came out, ok so the back looks great, but the front? I don’t think the cabling at the front works, I wonder if I put a belt with it that might make it look a little better? Not quite sure about the neckline either…
Pattern: Lilly by Marnie MacLean
Yarn: Colourmart 100% Extra Fine Merino
I’m pretty sure I did post that I’d finished this, I just never got around to taking photo’s of this with me wearing it. I actually really like this top, and it’s light weight. I’m quite a fan of this yarn!
Pattern: Rick by Cookie A
Yarn: Fire Lizard Studios Sock Yarn
Pattern: Laminaria by Elizabeth Freeman
Yarn: Don’t remember what I used!
I think this came out much better than the one I made for myself (this one is for my mum) the yarn is no where near as busy so you can actually see the stitch pattern.
And now I think I’m going to go and do some more knitting!
