Growing things

I love green. Spring green is a happy green. It’s cheerful and ‘active’ 😛

A short little update on Onerva 2.0 and the introduction of a new little project. When I was thinking about the Onerva project again I wanted it to be something fine. Something I could wrap around my shoulders in the windy Dutch summers and the Rowan Tapestry was too big and too soft for what I wanted. I did however like the idea of changing colors but with the Tapestry yarn this was too ‘present’ in the knit. After some searching I decided on Drops Fabel.
It’s sockyarn so it’s fine and it also has the changing colors. And there’s another big bonus, it comes in green 😀

I just started the seventh repeat of the pattern and I’m halfway through my second ball (out of 3). It’s a bit difficult to start but in the end it’s a no-brainer and a GREAT knit for in the train or while watching tv.

The mini project is the Paisley dress and hat by Mimi Kezer. I’m knitting this for my super super super cuuute little cousin Mandana. She’s 5 months old and is on a three month holiday to Holland with her mommy and grandparents. This is a picture of Mandana and her grandfather (she’s 3 days old on this picture)

This is actually my first -ever- attempt of knitting with multiple colors. It’s still a little messy but I hope the blocking will even it out, but I’m already sure I’ll be knitting this dress again!! It’s a very cute dress and the hat has something magical to it. I love it and I can’t wait to finish this one and start another one 😀

yea and if you’re wondering what happened to the pictures… I updated my Flickr Manager from v2.2 to v2.3 and it stopped working for me :'( so yea.. manual picture entry 😛
