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

Happy knitting!

Arlo 2

 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. 
Love it!

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


Happy knitting!

I guess every knitter who has Instagram( or without :-)) already knitted this one, in the round using some chunky yarn.

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 .

Cables and lace

Я люблю,когда у меня много процессов,даже факт того,что некоторые не доживают до "финала",меня не пугает,сам процесс вязания мeня просто очень увлекает.

I love having lots of knitting projects, even the fact that they won't live till the grand final doesn't scare me, I love the process very much.

Эти косы и ажур( в одном флаконе) я полюбила с первого взгляда,поэтому вяжу!

It was love at first sight with this cables and lace-project,so I knit and knit and knit!
