The Haubergeon Blouse

After completing the forever sleeve(s) of the Haubergeon Sweater-based blouse that I was making for my mom, the body knitted up quickly. Blocking soon followed, and my mom has already worn it a few times now! (Mornings are finally a bit colder here...) I can definitely say that I loved the knit, even if the … Continue reading The Haubergeon Blouse

The Forever Sleeve

I've been knitting a blouse for my mom, based on a pattern in a Knitting Traditions issue - the Haubergeon Sweater. This sweater has a plain body, with a lovely crisscrossing cable pattern on the sleeves that caught my mom's eye. The color that my mom prefers was not available in the suggested yarn weight, … Continue reading The Forever Sleeve

Usually, every few … Continue reading Textures and Mistakes

Earlier, I mentioned a delicious orange yarn that we thought of working with, but I couldn't really come up with something that would do justice to … Continue reading A Texturilicious Start!

There was even yarn available to sew on the buttons! I have a half a meter of yarn left when handing over … Continue reading Waves

Cable City!

Finally, finally! My cabled top is ready. 🙂 This was the most fun I've had with cables till now -- never a boring row! I did work on it on and off, though, so that might have been a contributing factor to the not getting bored bit. 😛 The Nako Saten yarn that I used … Continue reading Cable City!
