So… I still haven’t been skiing. I was going to try today.. but the weather is absolutely awful (or beautiful… because let’s face it, watching the snow falling on dark pine trees is pretty beautiful, right?) and it’s snowing quite heavily and I don’t think that poor visibility, snow drifts and unknown pistes are a good match to a back who’s not really one hundred per cent fine. Tomorrow the forecast is for sun and blue sky, I’ll go then.
To counter that, I’ve spent a lot of time knitting – and I finished both mittens – and I’m currently searching Ravelry and Insta for a stranded knitted sweater. I need simple colour work, reasonably size needles and non fitted shape. I want a cozy warm number.
So far I’m tempted by the three following items:
Irene Lin‘s Boho Style Mosaic Cardigan. This is a recently released pattern and I’m not sure I would know how to do the colour work part… but I do like a challenge and this looks so cozy and… that fringe detail! C’mon peeps, who doesn’t love a fringe?
There is another pattern by Isabell that has caught my attention and it’s called “Humulus“; I think they would both look amazing in black with the pattern in white.
Or maybe this one… and that would definitively be a test for my skillz…. all those colours! “Birkin” by Caitlin Hunter.
I could go on and on… there are so many wonderful designs out there but I keep returning to these…
Any more suggestions… ping them my way!
