Summer and knitting

Hello everyone!

Looks like I've taken a little break from blogging in July. The truth is I haven't had much time to knit. I knitted when I went to knit nights and that's about it. We've had such a hot July that knitting on my patio was out of the question!

However, I've started knitting again this week. Here is an update on my Baby Sheep Yoke Cardigan. The baby I'm knitting it for is born now. It is a boy (we didn't know yet), so I'm continuing with the blue version! I hope I can finish it by the end of my vacations (starting in one week!) and deliver it! We will see ;-)

I have to say that I undid the whole yoke to knit it again less tight. I was just watching the picture of the previous attempt and really, there is not much difference, but I think it is more loose now. I look forward to weave in ends and add the sheeps eyes and all. I think it will be pretty cute. I'm glad I'm using the original colors. Also, KnitPicks Swish DK is really nice to work with.

I have to pick up the last number of IK. I like the cover pattern. Also, I love two patterns from the new Twist: Hallett's Ledge, Twinflower (in particular) and many more...

Enjoy summer and knitting everyone!

HO oui, super cute ce mini-cardi! Hâte de voir les petits moutons.

J'ai reçu le dernier IK, mais pas eu le temps de bien le regarder, mon rush d'avant vacances - j'en suis à mes dernières heures - je prends une petite pause concentration ici...

et j'aime bien tes choix de Twist.

ciao! à bientôt Maryse!
