Say what you will about the Keep Calm posters and such, I love love LOVE this one that Ruth and Paul got me for Christmas. Now I need a life-size TARDIS to hang it on.
That was a nice diversion from the main topic of this post, right? We’re all fans of the Doctor here so this thing is tolerated. But I wanted to show you two recent projects I completed. The first one is a sweet little cardigan for a special little miss, my grand daughter Adrianna Katrin.
I knitted the smallest size but it’s going to fit her for a good three or so months I think. It took very little time to make anyway so I can always whip out the next size for her when I need to. This lovely cardigan is designed by my dear friend, Carrie Sullivan aka Irishgirlieknits. Surely she doesn’t need a formal introduction because you all know her by now, right? I’ve test knitted for her, knitted her designs and blogged about it here so many times.
I would like to make an adult-sized version of this one day. When I’m feeling less lazy I will work out the gauge and sizing and maybe will be able to make a matching cardi for my daughter.
The first time I knitted this scarf, it took me exactly one year to finish. Of course, I wasn’t knitting all the time then and I had it etched into my brain that I don’t like knitting scarves. Because they are narrow and long. Because it’s boring. This one however, is a wider and longer version but only took me 3 days to complete.
Of course, Luca has to get a bit of the action. He likes the wool. He often sits on top of my WIPs when I’m not working on them.
That’s it for now. I have a super special, I’m-so-happy-I-might-pee project blocking right now which I will show off very soon.
