I have been busy making socks and a few cardigans and a poncho. In the previous post I stated how I have been crocheting lots this winter. It is funny how when I get stressed I tune in to one of my many hobbies for relief. This time is crochet. I decided I wanted a new cardigan for work and made this wonderful pattern by Sewrella The Everyday Cardigan is a lovely and fairly easy project.
I also made a knitted boyfriend cardigan pattern from VogueKnitting Fall 2014 issue. The V Neck Cardigan is a lovely bulky weight pattern and I completed it in a very few days. I even wore it work but I found I didn’t care for the plunging “V” neckline and having the buttonholes on the left hand side drove me crazy. I ripped it back to the pockets and made the fronts go straight up, added a collar and moved the buttons so they do up on the right.I like it much better now.
I also completed some socks. Plain toe ups done two at a time using magic loop. The left pair is Turtle Purls "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard ,Spock". The right pair is Paton's Kroy Stripes "Landscapes".
Well that is all for today. This Wednesday we are meeting at Deina's. See you there.
So Happy New Year.
We will be meeting this Wednesday, January 31st at Reads in Riverview from 6 to 7pm. Weather permitting.
I have made two crochet shrug type cardigans in the last few weeks and I am knitting two different cardigans as well. The white Habitat cardigan I made was from a free pattern by Make& Do Crew and it is very beginner friendly. As is the second shrug I made Light Frost Blanket sweater by Mama in a Stitch .
See you all on Wednesday
