Check! 3rd Still Light finished…

My ultimate goal for the last 6 months has been to finish my “3rd Still Light”! 3 months ago I had to change my goal to finish it within 2013. And, eventually, I did! It dried up las night, just in time to take some pictures of it in daylight (didn´t have time to block it though…) on New Years Eve!. I call that a close call, but none the less, it´s finished!!IMG_4612

I´m very happy with it, and even more happy with my model! Thanks HG!

Pattern: Veera Välimäki´s “Still Light Tunic“. Mine is a version with modifications… You can see them here

Yarn: Garnstudio Drops Baby Merino, 11 skeins à 50g.

Needles: 3mm / US 2,5

Happy New Year!!!

Lipstick…

I couldn´t help myself. I just had to cast on to see how this yarn looks on the needles…

…and I love it! Everybody needs a Lipstick red cardigan, right? I couldn´t capture this color right though. It´s really a bit less orange… bad light for pictures these days…

Yarn: see previous post. Pattern is my own design where I experiment with a shoulder-saddle followed by the contiguous-method, developed by Susie Myers.

IMG_4501I really have to pull myself together to finish my 3rd Still Light, which is my goal for 2013! Less than an arm left…

Pattern: A modified version of “Still Light” by Veera Välimäki. Yarn: Garnstudio Drops Baby Merino. Needles: 3mm.

What I really need is a DVD series I haven´t seen before, to keep my attention long enough to finish this arm. But in lack of such, I think I´ll put on my favorite; “The Borgias” season 1+2 for the n´th time, -or, tune my new Pinell DAB radio in to BBC Radio 6 Music and dream of 2014´s skiing-adventures… (no relation between the two…)

I´ve added quite detailed mods for my Still Light in my ravelry project page.
