new project!

18 Mar
    this is what saturday shopping can do to you:


    and this picture is also 4 skeins short! anyway, fabrics were on sale, so was dale baby ull (50% off at unique (rosenkrantzgate, oslo)), and the rauma istra was planned. 🙂

    and a sunday morning watching oprah and tootsie – getting started on a new project


    pattern: # 4031 from Rauma
    yarn: rauma istra
    needles: 3,5 mm

    this cardigan that i’ve knit once before, only in one colour. this time i’m having a go at the four-colour one.

    which does give certain complications. like, i’m never too satisfied with my two colour knitting. but i very much want to get the hang of it, so here i go.

    i knit about 15 cm up the sleeve, but wasn’t happy with the tension, so i started over knitting much more loose, and am now this far:


    i usually start with the sleeves with sweater projects because it’s not too overwhelming to frog if you get the tension og pattern wrong.

    i’m knitting this first sleeve on the magic loop, and it’s working out well! a great video for showing this is found here, this site also shows several other techniques.

    This sweater looks amazing! Great work! Would it be possible to post the pattern as it is out of print?
