WIP: June 2018

It has been a while since I posted a WIP for the month post. Oh in fact it was in January! :O

At least my Finished Object posts are almost up to date! I need better pictures of my Boxy for then which is mentioned in January and was finally completed a month ago. Some pics are here.

So what am I actively working on at the moment? I am test knitting a wonderful design by Sari Nordlund who designed this jumper as part of the 2016 top down jumper along for Karen Templer. It is called Narwhal and features exquisite cables. I am using a silk blend yarn called Fino by Julie Asselin and it is define to knit with. So soft and in this awesome yellow gold colour.

Apart from that I am adding to my scarp blanket here and there and just had an idea to add swatches to it as well so you may see some knit stitches randomly pop up in it.

The orange notebook signifies me working on my first jumper pattern. I am super excited about this and learned a lot making it. My main takeaway is to take better notes as I go!

And some eagle eyed may have noticed the start of a Starting point half in this picture. As part of my local yarn shops summer knit along I picked up with WIP. I had actually in my mind frogged it already but then decided to make it. I am intrigued about the construction and actually the pattern is a lot easier than I remember. I must have learned a bit in the last year since I last knitted this pattern. 🙂

The main goal I have is to complete the golden cabled Narwhal by the end of the month and finish my pattern. I may need to re-test knit it before grading. I want to make something special and I’d like to test myself on my own instructions. 🙂

How is your June knitting looking?

  1. I love your scrap blanket. I just had decided that I may start to gather swatches and slowly seam them into a blanket. Seeing what you have going on there definitely galvanized my resolve.

    1. That’s really awesome! It’s super freeing to just free style and also feels great to use your swatches for something that will be useful! I’m glad you like the idea enough to make your own. 💖
