Long time, no blog posts! So we are going straight from Winter to Summer - and midsummer nonetheless!

I have been working on a lot of things, with plenty of work related travels here and there. My main challenge for this year is my project Year in Sweaters: a new sweater for each month of the year. I will write a separate blog post on that project soon! In the meantime you can take a look on Instagram my progress thus far - #yearinsweaters

But today I have new simple sweater for you: Grip!

This lovely sweater is worked from top down in Sandnes Garn Børstet Alpakka - such a lovely brushed alpaca, so soft and fluffy and light!


Pick up your needles and some lovely fluff yarn — and before you know, Grip sweater will be done! This sweater is my new go-to sweater for everyday layering needs; it’s so easy to wear, yet light, warm and soft.

Grip sweater is worked easily from top down in one piece, it has minimal details and lovely boxy fit – just how I love all my sweaters!

Approx. 660 (710, 800, 880, 970) (1070, 1190, 1300) yards / 605 (650, 730, 805, 890) (980, 1090, 1190) meters of bulky weight yarn. Sample is knit in size M and in color 1088 (dark gray).
