unnamed 1.0

This is a good week. I’m feeling a little sick but I’m feeling more ‘alive’ somehow than I’ve felt in a few weeks. I’ve had a meeting with my tutor and I feel like I can take on the world again so all is good in lililand πŸ˜€

Commelina is finished and I’ve managed to move on to my next project in line, which apparated (sorry I’ve been listening to Harry Potter audiobooks while knitting, and yes I’m a dork :D) in my head while working on the last rows of commelina. I hope I’ll receive my blocking set somewhere tomorrow because I’ve already received an email that it’s sent so let’s keep our fingers crossed πŸ˜€

The ‘pattern’ is actually not really a pattern but something I saw on a blog and a lace pattern I liked somewhere on the internets and then found on ravelry and somehow they combined in my mind into something I liked. Its not a pattern, but a combination of how I think this particular sweater could be knit and the lace pattern on the back. I found the sweater on this blog, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere else. I got the impression it was from a shop since I couldn’t find the sweater anywhere else I decided I would knit something like it in a way I thought I could knit it. So I made myself a little swatch and a little ‘pattern’ and I cast on.

I used the sockyarn (I have 2.520m) on 3.0mm needles and I already like the way its turning out πŸ™‚

Above you see the little sketches that is supposed to become my unnamed 1.0 sweater. The whole sweater will be very simple except for the ends of the sleeves, a very loose cowl and the snake like feather and fan panel in the back. So before I started I made a swatch for the lace panel but now I see I fudged the pattern so I’ll have to make another one. I’m also not sure about the YO’sΒ  so I’ll try M1’s to see if that’s better or not πŸ™‚

Though I really really like the yarn (overall I really like sockyarn), it’s a little rough on my poor yarn-finger while knitting, and after a while it leaves a red mark πŸ˜› But the knit fabric itself is nice and soft and I think a little dip in some nice fabric softener wouldn’t hurt it much πŸ™‚ The yarn consists of 75% superwash wool and 25% polyamide (?) so the good thing is I can wash it in the machine πŸ™‚ But the very best thing of it all was that it was supercheap πŸ˜€ (it’s from the lidl and I’m really really bummed they don’t have anymore… πŸ™ )

Anyway, theres a little side project I’m working on as well but I’ll tell you more about it on another day. It’s not finished and I don’t have the pictures now πŸ™‚
