If You ever find Yourself longing for some quick, easy and mindless but beautiful (AND, want to give fingers some rest from knitting, but not crafting :D ) project – try #9 Cowl by Kazekobo (from Vogue Knitting Crochet 2012). I used Regia 4 fädig / 4 ply and had a pleasant surprise – it turned out to be quite a soft yarn after washing :)
Noro requires no explanation, but simple admiration :) The whole process is filled with colors and waiting of “what’s next” ? This model is simple top down reglan, starting with 108 st and increasing to ididnotcount st on 2.5 mm needles. Add a few accents and the dress is ready to beatify.
I think I’m just gonna have a few more looks at it…
It’s been a long! But I’m back and here’s one of my latest projects – Tasty cardi :)
It got such a name, because every time my Little Prince gets dressed in it, he immediately starts eating either buttons or cuffs. Something must be really tasty in it :D
I guess it might be because of the softness of the Dolce Amore cotton! And it is so sad that the LYS that used to sell it won’t be doing it anymore… :( I loved this yarn, because of its softness, drapery fabric and beautiful colors. And it has absolutely no stiffness, which you can sometimes feel with cotton.
It took one ball of each color to make this beauty. And I made some changes to the original pattern. Instead of simply binding off the stockinette (which usually results in rolling up…) I finished cuffs and neck and bottom with i-cord bind of. It looks nice, delicate and stays put :D
We wish You all tasty knits!
