I guess it was too much to hope that I'd complete this project last year, but it's finally ready. Well, almost ready, since I feel the sweater could do with more buttons but we've not ordered any. However, it's wearable now, so can I consider it done already? 🙂 The cardigan used up almost 1400 … Continue reading A Texturilicious Cardigan
I've reached the armholes of the textured cardigan, and wow, was this an engaging knit or what! The continuous change in textures between the body and the cables and the sleeves made sure there was never a dull moment so far. Engaging or not, mistakes happen, and I had to rectify them.

After a successful stripey top, it's time for a new project! The project on my needles right now is a cardigan for my sis that I started this week. 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!

The texture is just awesome! I … Continue reading Textured Blouse

I think this was the first shawl that I ever knit (but it remained on the needles for a long while.) The notes vary the number of pattern rows, whereas I kept it constant, and I introduced … Continue reading Textured shawl inspiration
Yet another post that is delayed due to various reasons, the main one being my laziness. After a bout of creative experimentation for new knitting-related stuff, I've just been too bored to follow through on the results. This asymmetric shawl is one of those experiments that was pretty successful as I see it. 🙂 … Continue reading Scalene shawl
