Sneak peak of Crazy sweater in progress, more yarn.

So this is me playing with knitting, colour and yarn. Parts of sleeves and the front (with the red and actually turqoize, lime green). And it will be a lot of purple in different shades. Well, For you my friend, this is secret crazy sweater knitting. No pattern. Just whimsical knitting in all directions, doing zig,zag increase and decrease, joining and adding, holes and glitter. Of course Douglas Adams - Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy shines through in the back. And my camera is seriously breaking down. Now everything had a blue tint. What is going on?
Anyhow, I got Green Mist (bohus) from Solveig, where she lectures me in knitting "too loose". Im not knitting too loose, and it makes me very irritated to get that judgement. I have never asked. It is like golf a holy rule, if you do not ask you do not want advise. And I can write a page why it was like that on Forest darkness (a loose bottom brim, and a bit bubble on the pattern)- but I spear you. Anyhow, a bit surprising, in context of how much money I spend on her. So, I bought a cardi, and a barret and scarf (Large lace pattern). And a lot of silk in fabolous colors. This one for example. Grey brown silver metallic at the yarn festival.

I LOVE the "crazy" knitting! its fantastic. it reminds me in an odd way of your brother's paintings!
more and more people talk about the fact that there is no "wrong" way to knit, but some old fashioned teachers don't like this concept.

Oh dear, after reading that, I think I'm just going to use jumper weight Shetland to do a Bohus. I don't like "hairy" yarn anyway!

A piece of art, can´t wait to see more of it:) In finnish we say "hui hai", when we mean could´t care less. I agree with that I am my own judge when it comes to knitting. If I ask for advice and opinions, I am really grateful to get them, otherwise hui hai. Monica

I can't wait to see your creation!

I so agree with hphy knits, there is no wrong way to knit! If you are happy with the product, then that is all that matters. You had a picture of the picture...and your husband. It looked fantastik! And that is coming from someone who also knitted it. :)
