Loki

Loki doesn’t have any neck shaping so I added a couple of short rows below the yoke and one above the yoke for the green. It a fun and quick knit and the yarn is wonderful to work with. Filcolana peruvian highland wool is squishy and soft for normal wool but not super soft it still is a little scratchy but still soft enough for most children I think and it works really well for colourwork having just enough grip to keep the stitches in place. I’m thinking of making a yoked sweater for me to in this, I like the idea of sweaters but the ease of taking on and of cardigans without making to much of a fuss in classes or on a packed bus, so we’ll see what becomes of it. As of my blouse fever I’m knitting a blouse and have ordered yarn for another one, on the needles and almost finished is Amélie by Gudrun Johnston in the amazing yarn Canopy Fingering by The Fiber Co. as called for, it is super soft slightly drapey but not overly so and semi variated witch gives depth to the colour. and soon to be started is Waterlily from Pom pom issue 8 as long as the yarn I ordered works. So hopefully I will be wearing a lot of skirts, blouses and jumpers this winter. 

I’m so glad to be knitting again and to have the inspiration back after 6 months.

I have a newsletter, it will come occasionally and with previews of new designs and coupon codes. It will most likely not come more then 2 times a month and you can unsubscribe at any time.

      Tack ja det passar så fint, min favorit är den blå men min vän Hanna älskar den gröna, de är så lika men har ändå ganska olika personlighet, om en tröja kan ha det.

    Väldigt söta tröjor! Jag har också tänkt sticka en Loki, men har inte bestämt vad det ska bli i för garn än. Vad är det för tvättråd för garnet du stickade med? Är det maskintvätt (jag skulle nog vilja ha det till den här tröjan) eller är det handtvätt?

      Tack, det är handtvätt jag är inte så sold på superwash och försöker att undvika det även om det kan vara praktiskt. Det skall bli spännande din variation på denna enkla och mångsidiga tröja.
