|A bit of luck that this cowl match my new sweater.|
A good thing cannot be repeatet to often. At least if it is about eating chocolate and knitting a really comfy sweater. In order to get my diet on the track I chose the fiber this time...
The woollen fiber that is. It all started with my green Kermit sweater. I needed another one in a more suitable color for me. Not that green is far out, but a better one.
This time I ended up with the color teal (there are no word for the color in norwegian - most people will call it petrol, which it is not).
Teal is called an universial color - it is suppose to fit most persons. You should try it out and see how amazing it is that teal makes so many people looking good.
|This scarf was knitted to go with the sweater.|
Well, you can knit them together without a lot of difference in your garment. But Pt2 is a bit looser spun and is a little thinner.
That actually came even more to my attention when I knitted my sweater. It came out smaller than my previous.
But, I am so pleased with it. I think it is kind of boring just knitting something i one color.
So I added a few orange stripes to it by spit splicing orange yarn. Very useful technique and it makes a statement without getting too loud.
I have made a lot of moderations to fit for the yarn I have used - they are all listed up on my project page on Ravelry.
So here I am with my second sweater this year. And guess what? I am soon finished with a really red one as well. That - I am looking so much forward to. Stay tuned...
