I'm finishing the sweater for my godson,the little boy of 3 years old, very sweet and very cute.
The pattern is not from a fancy book or a piece of some popular designer,just from Drops design. I find they have pretty simple but gorgeous designs for kids( and for adults as well!) and for free! Just check it out! Drops design
I chose s22-43 "Igor" jumper with raglan sleeves, cables, and double seed st in ”Merino Extra Fine”
Here my work in progress, next to the Arlo sweater

Well, hi there!
Winter is just perfect for knitting,crafting and watching some movies,isn't it?
So the same here, open fire, knitting and some movies.
Like I've mentioned before here , I've loved Arlo cardigan so much that I've started the 2nd one,
not a cardigan but a sweater.
And here some pictures.
Yarn that I'm using is Zettl San Marino (DK / 8 ply)
And some mini's from Instagram

Sorry if you don't hear me much,but I'm here,knitting,living,breathing and enjoying life!
Will show you some of my FO's!
Scrollwork hat by Irina Dmitrieva (pretty cable stitches,easy-to-follow pattern)
and a simple seed stitch snood,
I guess every knitter who has Instagram( or without :-)) already knitted this one, in the round using some chunky yarn.

I couldn't say 'no' to this cuteness, pretty stitches,lovely cables and the perfect yarn .
I used Stone Washed XL by Scheepjes.
Weight Bulky / 12 ply (7 wpi) ?
Meterage 82 yards (75 meters)
Unit weight 50 grams (1.76 ounces)
Gauge 14.0 sts = 4 inches
Needle size US 8 - 5.0 mm
Hook size 5.0 mm (H)
In June I already used the yarn by Scheepjes , it was Stone Washed (I knitted the Hooded Raglan Pullover, click here ).
So this time it was "XL',pretty yarn, amazing colours,loved knitting with it, doesn't split,very soft.
Tubular cast on method for the rib, very nice instructions of the designer.

The cardigan was for a pretty girl, so floral buttons,perfect!
I loved the pattern so much that I started one for my boy, but it'll be a sweater .
