I have 2 projects to share for today's WIP.
I started this Celery Cardigan 2 weeks ago. I am using Malabrigo Sock Yarn in Tiziano Red. I love the yarn and how it feels. It has a little spring to it, which makes it really easy to knit with.
Right now I have knitted up to the body increases. My original plan was to have this done by the end of the year, which is in 3 weeks so I am not sure if I can make the deadline. But I am hoping I'll have this in a pretty good shape (almost done) by then.
This is what the cardigan is supposed to look like when it's done. Now you know why it's called celery :).
Another big project I've been working on and off is the Still Light Tunic. This one is going to take FOREVER so I am not even going to put a deadline to it. But hopefully I will finish it while the weather is still cold.
This is what it's supposed to look like.
And this is how far I've gotten.
I still have a loooong way to go.
I am using Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine yarn. I have a love and hate relationship with this yarn. I love that is has alpaca in it. It makes it very soft. But the yarn tends to stick to one another so when I am undoing some rows to fix my mistakes (which happened twice already), the yarn got stuck and ended up getting jumbled and then I have knots that I have to solve like a puzzle. It is not fun!
But it is so pretty and pretty so I am "hanging" on, :).
Both patterns are available for purchase from Veera Välimäki, who is an amazing designer. I have several other patterns by her that I want to make, that is, when I finish these two!
