Olive Cardy – progress

I’ve just finished the schoppel socks, so I think I will concentrate on the olive cardigan to see if I can get it finished in the next week or two.

It’s going well so far. I am adding a bit of waist shaping in this one to get a slightly closer fit.

I’ve been thinking of making a little summer top in hemp yarn for a while now. I bought some allhemp6 from lanaknits a few months ago, and bought a pattern with it to make a top down seamless knitted tee-shirt. It’s a really nice pattern, but I’ve already got quite a few similar tops, and I feel like making something different. I saw this on ravelry recently and I think it would work well with the yarn. I’m not sure whether to try it, or try to make up my own design – we will see! 

I really enjoy seeing other people’s versions of my designs, particulary when they have done something different with them. There is a lovely version of Eva’s shawl on daisyfrog.blogspot.com in worsted weight alpaca. It looks lovely and cosy.
