WIP Wednesday

I’ve been busy and I have two projects on the go at the moment (and a lot more in the queue on Ravelry).

The first project I want to show you is the McDreamy jumper I’m knitting for Luke for the upcoming winter. I love the pattern and I chose an electric blue for it. I started two days ago, I like that it seems to be a rather quick knit. Although I now need to focus on something else as I’ve had some Etsy orders.

The second project which I started today is the Etsy order I mention above. It’s another version of the vest. And I’m already further along than this picture says.

FO: Pink Lacy Bolero

It seems that I’ve taken a bit of a longer off blogging than I thought. It doesn’t mean that I took off time from knitting. And for once I actually knitted something for myself. As you might remember I was in Germany at the end of August for my brothers wedding and I had a lovely dress that needed a nice bolero. So I knitted this:

It’s a lovely easy pattern, I started knitting it on Friday evening (the wedding was on Saturday) and finished it about one hour before the wedding.

I wasn’t too sure about knitting it out of mohair yarn as I thought it might be too hot, and I was right. But I was able to wear it in the church and later in the evening, just not during the day.

I’m really pleased with the end result and I think I look rather good in it :-).
