FO- Indietop Pinktober and FO- Mothers socks!
Hi there! Very proud to present the Indietop (started on a flying trip to India) with saleyarn from Garnverket in Linköping and Stockholm (Rowan summer tweed in two pink colours) adding some Giotto tape-yarn to spice it up. The time started was october - and all should (even in June) be aware of breastcancer, so therefore it was named "pink-october = Pinktober". No, no pattern, the usual "garngamen knits on circular" and makes a sweater to wear... Ok, a tense smile, but hey Im posing on the street here, give me some cred! Note - it is in front of the syringa to the left the wonderful "Katherine Havemyer" fragrant, and bluish pink that changes to pale lilac when in full bloom, and to the left - the Syringa reflexa. Anyhow Im very proud of the last one, since I raised it from seed! Well, I must admit Im a bit overwhelmed with your kind comments. Do not feel obliged. I was having a down period, but Im back again, realizing it is great to celebrate our knitting and yes, you are out there! Ok, I finished My dear mothers socks. They are big, on request, but yummy soft. Patons "JET" is the cuff yarn and the foot is in Eskimo from Garnstudio. They were really heavy on the wonderful white tree-peonies. But was posing better on the tender Hostas, just opening up their leaf-charm. And I have been a good girl doing the steek of Sue's secred cardi, and starting on the cuff. Ohh, I forgot. The most fun knit is the blouse-bunnie holder- from a patter called Citrus yoke top, but you can see - this is all ICE-CREAM. I tell you the story later, ok?
