From the sock club I saw these socks and then I followed the link to the yarn producer, Miss Babs. There I got stuck looking at all the nice yarns and color combinations. My sister went to the US and voilá, an opportunity for her to bring me back some yarn.

a lot from the last Interweave knits.
Maybe it is because I would like to look that way :-) I guess it's warm (and that's a good thing!). I think I would miss the long sleeves. I havn't really figured out all the thick woolen cardigans with short sleeves just yet.
...and here is another one I can imagine wearing (maybe in off-white)
Inspired by Maria and then also by Liselotte I've started a new crochet project. I got some great yarn in the second Drops sales, Muskat in 9 different colors and have now calculated, and re-calculated and also started on my cardigan.
So far it gives me the feeling av rag carpet (trasmatta) but with the colors it makes me happy.

N is growing (or at least I hope so) and it's time for a bigger size of my "standard baby cardigan".
This time a red one in the eco cotton from Huskroken. I have 4 hanks and took one random to start with. When completing the back it noticed that the other 3 hanks are colored differently, the first one has more pink and white dots and the other have a darker pink shade. Time for a re-start and this project is now in the standard "Anna stand-still". That is when the finish-up starts and the last knitting of neckband etc.
Here is at least a picture of the start.
I share the FO any day....................... I'm lucky she is a small size yet.

What do you give to someone how has everything he needs? Something knitted of cause!
I bought the yarn at Marias during the first Drop yarn sale this spring. It's a classic alpaca yarn and I used the Classic Camel vest from Knitting Daily.
With classic leather buttons it tirned out great and the size was perfect. (I did the last finishing after he tried it on just to be on the safe side).
