Knittin' and Spinnin'
I get a bug every year. Some type of knitting project that I must do. Lace was it, then socks, back to lace, a bag fetish here and there. It is finally sweaters!!! I all of a sudden am obsessed with sweaters. That doesn't mean I don't do lace, or socks,or bags it just means I obssesively knit the objects of my desire. The others are not so obsessive;-)
I finally discovered Elsebeth Lavold. Everyone was mad about her two years ago and I was busy obsessing about something else-probably lace.
I'm busy knitting away on the back of Ylva fromViking Knits Two. I'm doing the shell in silky tweed. These pictures are from a day ot two ago so I now have the middle medallion done and am getting close to the armhole and cool braid along the armhole. I like the fact that her motif is on both the front and the back. It is more work and most people don't see the back but I love details. She is all about these little details.
After that I want to do Audrey from Sophisticated lady. I'm also going back to the Elizabeth Cardi from one of the Rowan Books. I have the back and one of the sides done so I only have to do the other side and the sleeves!
