Work in Progress WIP

What are my works in progress at the moment? Here are two of my projects on the go, and yes – I have another two I am working on according to my preference. My knitting time is precious to me hence I have no time to calculate the armhole nor wind yarn, when I have moved onto my comfortable knitting sofa. I have for a long time wanted to test out Norwegian dyer Fiber and Art’s gorgeous yarn Vandre (70% Blue Faced Leiceter (BFL), 30% Nylon, 100 g/3.5 oz, 350 m/383 yds) and since she is organising and participating in my Lace workshop this weekend, the time is ripe. Above is the stunning purple with shades of lighter pink (marked dyelot 50 V) in my Dewdrop wrist warmers from my book, knitted using a 3 mm/US 2.5. Nina has a shop at epla and a blog: fiberandart, and patterns in Norwegian for sale at amicapatterns. Contact her for yarn requests at:  nina.hove.myhre@gmail.com.

Second project on the go is a long open vest in my beloved Norsk Pelsullgarn from Hifa. A pure wool which feels like it has quite a bit of mohair in it but it has not (100% Norwegian Furwool, 100 g/3.5 oz, 260 m/284 yds). Knitted using a 3.5 mm/US 4 and available here: ull. Here are some of my previous post on this yarn, if you missed those: norwegian-pelsullgarnfurwoolyarn and more-on-my-newest-favourite-yarn-pelsullgarn. I adore the turquise color and how the cables stand out from the background. The arcade pattern creates a depth and is an additive pattern to knit. I have chosen double moss – again, yes I know – as edging, and I am considering adding an attached I-cord to the outer edging for some extra volume and weight too. I need to test it, or whether I should fold the double moss edge into a hem? Armholes are next so it will not be long until I can show you the result…

    Beautiful stitch patterns and the colors are just gorgeous. I love double moss stitch — the edging will be beautiful, especially with the i-cord. Can’t wait to see both!

    Both colors are lovely – but the turquoise is my favorite! Your stitching shows the colors off so nicely!
