La la la Perry on its way!

This is my current project under construction.

Perry was love at first sight. When I saw this pattern, I just adored it! I MUST make this cardigan!
So I bought yarns from Brooklyn Tweed of course, then, I cast on! I also bought yarn winder!!! FINALLY!

 I love this lace pattern.
 Mojo is happy sitting on my lap while knitting. weather is getting warming up outside though...

Atelier in Tokyo - my mom's!

I managed to finish my mom's Atelier cardigan just before Fall season kicks in. I used Madelinetosh Pashmina Smokestack which I love!!

For sleeves, instead of three quarter, I also made long sleeves. My mods are:
Dec rows 6times, 11 rows in between. made length to 40cm then cuffs. Just before make cuffs, dec sts as follow: K7, K2tog, K7, K2tg....

This way, sleeves are nice and narrow. My sister's version is little bit flare at cuffs. It's for mom, I don't think she likes flare cuffs for her age.

 I purchased Madelinetosh Pashmina from eat.sleep.knit. They were fantastic!!!
