Sweater knitting and other progress

pink sweater - knitting the body is almost done

With a little less soccer than last week I naturally made a little less progress with my sweater knitting. But nonetheless I am just a few rows away from finishing the body. It will then have to wait for the sleeves to be completed and then it’s going to be circular yoke time! I’m planning a two-coloured design of my beloved twisted slipped stitches forming …

Elinor is finally blocking and more

I am having a couple of days off this week and so I finally have some time on my hands again for the more interesting things in life… like crafting and blogging. The big news is already in the title: I blocked my pink Elinor today. I finished knitting it almost four weeks ago, but never made it to weaving in the ends and blocking …

Little Progress on my pink Elinor Shawlette

I made little progress with my pink Elinor Shawlette as the title suggests. Just a few rows here and there. But it’s growing and as the rows are getting shorter now, it feels like I’m making tremendous progress anyway… And I thought, you might like to see the pictures.

Pink again – further progress on my Elinor Shawlette

Elinor Shawlette Progress 7

I finally finished the purple mid-section of my Elinor Shawlette and have begun knitting in the original pink colour-gradient yarn again. I’m really pleased with the way this mid-section turned out and surely will be including instructions for it in the pattern update. Other than that, I haven’t crafted anything this past week. Although the linen I dyed some weeks ago is starting to cause a really bad conscience, …

Half-finished Elinor Shawlette in pink

I have finished knitting more than half of my pink Elinor Shawlette! Last weekend I finally made a decision on how to work the middle section and now it’s smooth sailing. I settled on some left-over fingering weight shetland yarn in purple. It matches the colours of the colour-gradient yarn quite nicely and I like the sharply defined colour change in contrast to the slowly …

The pink Elinor Shawlette is growing

Elinor Shawlette Detail

Slowly, but surely my pink version of the Elinor Shawlette is growing. I’ve knitted 9 full lace repeats and am ready to head into the short row section in the middle. I’ve calculated that I should have used up only 43 to 44% of the yarn yet. The scale says I’m left with 55g of the 99g that were there at the start. So I …

Zwischenstand 26.03.2014 – Elinor Shawlette

Actually I have rather a lot of finished objects to share, but that will have to wait until Friday. So here is my current work in progress: I’m knitting the Elinor Shawlette in a pinkish colour-gradient yarn. I started it a week or two ago and my progress has been rather slow as I’m trying to work on clearifying the wording of the pattern for …
