Circular cardi and such

Wow, this took a long time to get back to leasure after work hit me hard. So, I have been sailing, I have started hyposensibility, I have eaten bad fish, I have done some gardening, and of course, a lot of work.....test, research, and keeping up with mail. I have managed to sneak my head into Trassel to buy another size 5 circular needle in 80 cm for my circular sweater, the one on Vouge Knittings Fall front cover. After a long decisionperiod trying to first to fight the urge to finish my ongoing sweater instead of starting something new, giving up and.... then into yarn from stash selection mode... this is what I have done. It is Debi Bliss Maya yarn (only have one ball) then it is Mojärv turquise and white and purple, and then some of the Estonian yarn, that is slow colouring change from darkblue over turqoise to purple. Interesting.....

Then I cannot understand the pattern. For me, when it says knit, increase in next, it does not automatically mean knit 2 stiches and add one. So, I had to frog it. Now Iäm finally adjusting the pattern correctly, but as always, the mix of yarnthickness etc is always interesting. So I'm knitting a few rows when I can. I finished my first Telemarksvott, and are now starting the second....so it will definitely take a while before you see any result.
