summer plum

I'm getting back on track with spring knitting. I have ripped out two whole sweaters - oh, how irritating that always is! But they were not as good as I had hoped. This summer plum is much better.

Love the color and the shiny buttons. The sweater is easy peasy. Not too fancy, but fun enough. Now I think I've had enough of the double-breasted designs for a while. There's been quite many of them lately.

Pattern: my own
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug
Needles: 4 mm

different lines

Oh, it's April. Spring. I have the feeling that I will need my wellies for the rest of the month... While all that brown snow melts.

I have a new scarf/shawl to show you. I think it's great. It belongs to husband now. It's light and springy and soft and really wearable. I've been thinking that I'd like to knit a different stripe scarf/shawl for each one in my family. So two more to go.
