So here is my newest addition to my knitting wardrobe.
On the last weekend of october I had the pleasure to attend a Knit-a-long workshop with Anke from ankestrick at my local yarn store Atelyeah. I cast on her new design Hvide with the lovely Chickadee yarn from Quince & Co. I chose my favourite colour purple and loved both the feel of the yarn while knitting and the seamless construction of the sweater.
I especially loved the construction of the v-neck and the very smooth and elegant edging.
It took me a little while to get into the rhythm of the short rows for the saddle shoulders but it was well worth it. Next time I might want to shorten the v-neck a bit as it is a little deeper than I like to wear it. I’ll probably wear a top underneath just as in the picture.
The hem in garter stitch with a nighty degree twist was news to me and I’m utterly in love with it. The little extra curve at the bottom hem makes it even more lovely.
This sweater was an absolute joy to knit and one of my favourite projects so far.
But it was not the only project on my needles in November. I also knitted with Jetztkochtsieauchnoch, feinmotorik.blogspot and feierabendfrickeleien again. This time they hosted a hat KAL and I knitted the Evergladeshat by Wolly Wormhead for my sister. She picked the yarn herself when we were on holiday in September and just in time I before the temperature drop in november I was able to surprise her with the finished hat in her mailbox.
I hope you all have a lovely cozy holiday season, merry christmas and a happy new year.
Have a lovely time
All my love💞
