This past Monday night at de Jaren, C. and C. brought/wore their Mandy’s Heart sweaters. The red one was made for C.’s daughter. Aren’t they lovely?
The light in de Jaren is just AWFUL for photos (and for knitting too). I did my best with photoshop to improve the light and color. They both seem very happy with their new sweaters, and you can’t ask for more than that!
I’m busy working on the next sweater design, which will be perfect for a beginning sweater knitter. Andy is also knitting a sample sweater for me. I’m about half finished with mine so I hope to get test knitters started in another month. There’s also another new project that is 2/3 finished which I NEED to finish in the next 3 weeks. That’s a lot of knitting to get done soon!
But at the same time I’m itching to start something small and new. I really want to make another pair of Mandy’s Heart socks in a bright shocking pink and it’s taking all my willpower to hold back and finish these other 2 projects first. I used to be such a monogamous knitter too! Looks what’s happened to me!
Oh, one other bit of knitting news – I’ve started using my new HiyaHiya sharps, interchangeables, 5″, and I LOVE them! I swear I’m knitting faster with them. They feel great in my hands, nice and light and the finish on the metal has just the perfect amount of slip. I think I’ll post a more extensive review of them in a few weeks when I’ve had a chance to work with them some more.
Happy Knitting everyone!
