sweet vanilla


Sometimes things don't work out as you hope they would. Lately I've been frogging two (and a half) almost finished sweaters - I just didn't like them enough. I know it happens, but it feels kind of sad too. At least when you've felt the it's-not-so-good-as-you-think somewhere deep in your mind for many days, but still went on with the project. How to know when it's the right time to let go?


After that I needed some easy and happy to cheer me up. Oh, that so worked out. Lightweight merino, plain Stockinette and yet something to keep me interested. Turned out quite romantic and sweet. And comfy. The tunic was supposed to be for a friend, but I'm having some serious doubts about that now. I love to wear this thing.

Pattern: my own
Yarn: madelinetosh tosh merino light
Needles 4 mm and 2.5 mm

I love it, but I am so short it probably wouldn't look too good on me. But that's such a beautiful color.
