IK Winter 2006

Very happy that the IK winter 2006 lastly reached to my home, I have been waiting for a week. I can't stand for waiting to show you what pattern I like.

I am now still full force knitting my friend's purple v-lace and cable vest, the back is finished and the front is at the armhole leve l (the belowed picture).

Purple V-lace and Cable Vest

This is the vest for my friend and she pick the purple colour - one of her favourite colour. The stitch pattern is a combination of v-shape lace and cable, the difficulty is that I have to calculate the exact stitches to fit her size and she is in big size. To order to figure out her body shape, I need to shape the waist section which I don't do this on my cardigan or vest. After knitted inches, the pattern turns out quite nice. She will read this blog and has a chance to have a preview of her vest.

Cross Stitch Keyring

This is my first time to do the cross stitch.

keyring bought at Japanthe kit of the pack

the leaves are stitchedalso the flowers

It is completed and I like it very much. At the beginning, really don't know how to start. Once you have started, you will like it and eagerly to complete it. It takes me about 3 hours to have it done.

Knitting progress
1. Sienna cardigan
The back, left and right front are completed. The sleeves ...... not my favourite part, but need to knit it.......

2. I start to cast on a vest for my friend. The stitch pattern is extracted from this and that and the sample looks quite nice.

The yarn is 100% merino wool and it is very fine that 3.5mm needle is used. Let's see how it looks like when inches are knitted.
