The test knit of my new design, the Havtorn sweater is going well! The wonderful people that are testing for me are doing the best job ever, spotting some of my ‘hiccups’ as we call it. I am amazed by the talent and I am so incredibly thankful for the wonderful people that have taken on the test knit for me and are doing an amazing job, helping me with the pattern.
It is so much fun to see the design come to life, the different yarns and colors the test knitters are using, so much fun!
As the test knit for my Havthorn sweater is on going, I made these 2 dolls, they were a request from a family member and it took me some time to figure out how to make them, that is why they are 2 different sizes. The bigger one is approx. 33 cm and the smaller one is about 28 cm.
Unfortunately I am working on 2 kitting designs at the same time!!! I get distracted and shiny yarn shows up and I can’t help myself!!! I probably need therapy! 😅
So far, so good… playing with this pattern idea, Hobbii Diablo Multi & knitting needle 8 mm. Maybe I need to change the pattern on the yoke, need to play some more with that… 🤔 I really need to stop getting distracted by a shiny new idea!!!
The other idea…
The other knitting idea has been waiting my attention… but as I ran out of Diablo yarn and had some other ideas come up, I guess I just need to continue working on this one. 😆 I do love the yarn I am working with, Hobbii Metallico & knitting needle 5.5 mm.
I have been home with influenza and I just had to feel like I was getting something done. So happy with the result, my second time making a shawl. The shawl is not washed nor have I done the blocking, yet… but it looks great!!!
