something silver


This cardigan, Something Silver, is a collaboration with the yarn shop Villavyyhti. And it is a lovely one, can't put it otherwise! It's so springy yet not too girly for my taste. Hope you like it too.


Something Silver is a lovely cardigan with lace details and garter stitch. The cardigan is easily worked from the top down in one piece.

Finished chest circumference: 30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50)” [75 (85, 95, 105, 115, 125) cm].
Yarn: 5 (6, 7, 8, 8, 9) skeins of Silky Wool by Elsebeth Lavold (192yds [176m] per 50g), approx. 980 (1110, 1240, 1370, 1500, 1640) yards [880 (1000, 1130, 1250, 1370, 1500) meters] of DK to fingering weight yarn.
Gauge: 20 sts and 28 rows = 4” [10 cm] in lace pattern.

And other news: The Craft Museum of Finland has nominated me for the "Craftsman of the Year", Vuoden käsityöläinen. It's an amazing honour for me. I feel really overwhelmed by the nomination, and even more by the wonderful support and encouragement you have given me! Thank you!

I'll be in Jyväskylä tomorrow attending a local craft show - please come and say hi, if you happen to be there. You'll find me at TitiTyy's booth C 35/2.

Hi,
I ordered this pattern which I find so nice for the spring. I also found the Elsebeth Lavold yarn in the USA so now I am waiting for it to begin this gorgeous cardigan.

I am very happy for you for the great honour you received as the "craft woman" of the year as it's a way for your work to be recognized.

Have a good day

Agnès

Congratulations on the nomination! Well earned :) Lovely sweater!

Congratulations Veera! I think your work is amazing! I am not a very experienced Knitter but am learning gradually. I love all your designs and recently bought Shimmer in Blue which turned out amazing! I have decided to knit my very first sweater and my sister selected the Twenty Ten cardigan for her birthday present, so I will start working on it very soon. I am also planning on knitting Driven for myself later on. So thank you so much for sharing your designs, you deserve the honour greatly! Julia from Paris

Paljon onnea !Olet nimityksesi ehdottomasti ansainnut . Olen neulonut mallejasi jo jonkun verran ja parhaillaankin on Water and stone puikoilla. Ihanan malli taas tämä uusikin ja menee kyllä ehdottomasti to do-listalle :)

This is a beautiful pattern. I love the combination of "girly" lace with rustic garter stitch. And the scale is just great.

Jaana said...

Oi, tästä tykkään! Just sopivan tyttömäinen muttei liikaa. Ja isot onnittelut uudesta ansaitusta tittelistä!

Onnittelut nimityksestä! Tuli ihan oikeaan osoitteeseen minusta! Minulla on tällä hetkellä kaulassa Color Affection, ja kaksi uutta versiota tulossa jo puikoilla. Koukuttava malli!

You absolutely deserve to win this award. Your designs are the reason I have taken up knitting again after a 20 year hiatus!
