Knitting has been taking over my crafting activities as summer has arrived and with it vacations to beaches and such. Yarn and needles are so much easier to transport than a sewing machine and cutting table!
The project I've finished most recently is a sweater I made for my daughter Emmanuelle's 4th birthday. I had fun learning to make the bobbles for the cuffs and collars and used intarsia for the big bow under the chin. I made it using a pattern from Melissa Leapman's book, Mastering Color Knitting.
I've also been entranced by the #findyourfade trend, based on modern knitwear designer Andrea Mowry's beautiful multicoloured shawl design. A great interview can be found at Indie Untangled. The only problem is all of the wool I want to get now!
