Idlewood Tunic

I had my Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool sitting in my stash. I was going to knit something for my father, but then I changed my mind.

I decided to knit Idlewood but tunic version. I made length longer so I can wear without bulky pants.

It turned out ok, but there were too many stockinette stitches... round and round and round....

July is finishing! One more month of winter... Mojo feels chilly at night so she sleeps on my lap...

Honeycomb Tunic for my niece

I had a left over yarn from my Atelier Cardi. So I decided to knit tunic for my niece (She will be 2 yo this October). I had a pattern of
Langstroth by Elizabeth Green Musselman. I knitted this pattern before, so I decided to arrange for girl's version.
This photo is before blocking. I used Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed. It's firm when you knit, but it's soft after blocking. Photos below are after blocking.

I made sleeves shorter and slits upwards. Also I made body length longer so her butts will hide inside tunic. Hope she likes!

Atelier Cardigan revealed

I was able to finish my Atelier Cardigan! It was such a great pattern. I knitted according to pattern exactly but it seems to be a little short for me. I've already planning with new Skein yarn next time. I'm ordering custom order yarn....

Anyway, here is my cardi. I will wear a lot. I love the pockets, I may knit for my mum and my sister in a future...

What are you knitting?

I started a new project straight after Central Park Hoodie. It is Atelier cardigan. I had an accident. My wooden needle broken off from metal part WHILE I was knitting in my hotel room! Gees!

Luckily shop I bought said, I can exchange to new one becase Knitpro needles are guarantee. THANK GOD! So this time, I changed to metal tip insteaad of wood. I'm using 3.25mm needle, it must be too skinny to knit a cardian with it...

I have knitted up to waistband so far. Not too bad, not too bad...

Freshly off the needle - introducing Central Park Hoodie!

I always wanted this hoodie even I had a similar one in my wardrobe. But I wanted more elegant and light version.

I used Brooklyn Tweed Shelter "Nest" Colour for this project. Jeez, I had to wait 4 weeks to get to my home for this wool. My momentum was shed off.

But since I had time off, why not, I started this project. It took one week exact to make this project.

CPH-pattern originally from Knitscene Fall 2006... You can still purchase this pattern.

I made a few modification from original. Lengthen about 4 inches, made hoodie longer by 3 inches.

I love this hoodie, now I have to go out with it. Central Park? I wish!
