FO – Campfire cardigan

Happy Wednesday!

I have to say I have been super slow at knitting my Read Between the Lines shawl so I haven’t got any pictures to share but I have finished my Campfire cardigan yesterday, just in time for tomorrow’s deadline to enter the #grannyCAL18 hosted by Rosina of Zeens and Roger. I’m totally in love with it and as usual when I finish something I’ve been wearing it around the house a lot (read I haven’t taken it off) since yesterday.  You will notice they are quite a few differences with the original pattern, I decided not to make a hood and to keep the sleeves at 3/4 length.

I had lots of fun today doing a little photoshoot in my kitchen. I find photos are always a bit challenging to find the right pose (I ended up taking waaaay more pictures that those 2) but well worth it 🙂

In other news, I’ve been participating in March Meet the Maker over on Instagram, you can have a look at the pictures I posted on the right panel of my blog even if you’re not on IG, I’ve been talking a bit more about my design process and what I normally do of my days if you’re interested 🙂

  1. Looks good! Almost enough to make me want to start crocheting (almost, but not quite), but it’s a bit too warm here for much woolly cardigan wearing, sadly.

  9. I absolutely love it, the colours really work well together. I think the 3/4 sleeves are perfect, specially for our weather down in the southern hemisphere, it will make for lovely wearing lots during the year. And perfect for wearing over a little something with longer sleeves even.
    🙂 Now I know I am not the only one that takes dozens of photos, just to use one or two. Well done on the ones you settled on, the show your work wonderfully.
