I cast on for Sparkling last weekend and I have been having great fun all week knitting this cardigan.
I took this photo yesterday and have knitted another 4″/10cm since. It seems to be flying off the needles. It makes a lovely, light, airy fabric which has to be felt to be fully appreciated. I’m finding it hard to stop knitting. Here is a photo of the reverse side of the fabric:
This weekend is full of sparkly, happy things. My knitting makes me happy! Giant fields of poppies make me happy! Ravelry makes me happy!
The only thing making me unhappy is the internet here which has been seriously disrupted all day. So, instead of writing more, I will leave you with one last happy thing. My new project matches the giant field of poppies I blogged about yesterday!
How cool is that!
Lots of gorgeousness all round – happy knitting and sparkling!
It is really so nice and inspiring:) Thank you! Your post made me happy !
Best regards from Berlin 🙂
I’m happy that you’re happy! It really was a lovely weekend, on many fronts. (I lived in Berlin for ten years and miss it! Lucky you!)
When knitting makes you that happy, and is that gorgeous already, what is there to add? Enjoy it! H
Exactly, Thanks, Agnes.
Nothing has quite the impact of a field of flowers.
Lovely! Happiness all around!
Your Sparkling is beautiful! And you aren’t kidding about it flying off your needles – that’s fast work!
I’m not sure why it’s going so fast – I am not a particularly fast knitter and I seem to be getting slower as time goes by. So this is a nice surprise.
You really are getting it done! And it is looking lovely 🙂
