Knitting for Dea...

I do like knitting in fine wool on small needles...but...it takes a looong time, so It was time to make some changes. This piece is knitted partly by hand and partly by my very old machine


The pattern is my own designed, using this method and the yarn is knoll supersoft from Holst Garn. For the garter stitch I used needle size 2, for stocking stitch I used size 3 and on the machine yarn tension 6 and loop size 6,3



The colours are aquamarine and almond. I like the combination of the bright colour of the aquamarine and the neutral colour of  almond. It was a very pleasant knit made in just one day...

Du har gjort det igen, Mette. Smukt og gennemført design endnu en gang. Jeg misunder dig (...på den gode måde) din evne til at designe smukke og enkle modeller. Tænk at prinsessen er så stor.... Håber at I alle trives.
