Summer top

This top was knitted without a pattern. I've improvised this design by looking on the picture from internet. Can't find this picture now on my PC.

My current project

I’m working on some kind of “basic cardy” now. I'm not using any particular pattern for this project, just have some idea in my head. It’s going to be a cardigan with raglan sleeves, small pockets at the front and may be with few buttons.

I’m knitting with Debbie Bliss pure silk in apricot colour, which I have bought on ebay recently but I’m not very happy with the quality of the yarn. I’ve got mixed impression about this yarn. It’s incredibly soft, warm and silky and it has very bright pretty colour and shine. I absolutely love touching it. But it’s not the best yarn to work with. It twits and knots itself frequently and has very uneven texture. There are a lot of sections where the yarn is either very thin or really thick. So it’s very difficult to keep an even gauge and it’s not possible to discard all bad sections because of they quantity.

Anyway I hope I will finish this project soon and hopefully it will be good enough as casual cardigan.

First post

It’s my first post ever… 

I’ve been thinking about to create a blog for a long time and finally decided to make a start. Of course, knitting is my main hobby, but I also enjoy crochet, felting, sewing, cross stitch and other similar activities.

I started knitting when I was about 7 years old just because I was bored. It was summer holidays and most of my friends were away. So my granny taught me basic stitches and I started my journey into the knitting world. I don’t remember my first project. Maybe it was scarf for my favourite doll or just a knitting sample. Anyway I remember my second project – it was a sweater for myself. I was so proud when I finished it.

I have so many projects and ideas in my head that I wish to have another pair of hands and 48 hours instead of 24.  I like creating new designs and I want to share them in my new blog here. In my next post I show some of my favourite finished projects and what I am working on now. Just need some time to figure out how to add pictures and other stuff to a blog page.
