Some knitting

Dear readers, here I sit again. I spun some yarn this summer. Now I realized the yarn refuses to become plied, so I must leave the plying plan and just knit the single together with some other yarn. It seems the single behaves nicely when you knit it. Some little boy may get a little cardigan soon. I don't know where the said boy is. I do not know if someone is expecting him. I don't know if he has been born already. But I just know I like to knit that little "vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce" cardigan.

Just a picture of a sweater

Dear readers,I have started the actual funeral sweater. My trustworthy scanner seems to be the only way I can show you the pictures. It's better than camera ever, not to forget my skills are miserable.

About my knitting

Dear readers,here I sit again. The funeral sweater project has made some progress. The test version 2 is ready. But! But but but! A friend of mine must check, if the front & the back are equal in length. If not, I must re - knit the front and mark the necessary changes to the pattern as well.
If the length is OK, she and I try to join the sweater as complete and see, if it fits me well. If the answer is yes, that means I have found The Pattern and I can start knitting the actual funeral sweater. If not, I may have to start all over again. That is, to find yet another pattern, test knit, check the length etc. Oh well, at least I'm knitting.
I also have some happier knitting to do. This blanket you see in the picture, it will travel to America. That much I can tell you, but I can't share the name or location of the new owner. This is a surprise, you see, and I want it to stay that way.

About printing and knitting

Dear readers, here I sit again as usual. Some of you may know I lost a friend in summer 2015. I am glad her funeral was during a summer too. She passed away in June and we said the final farewell in July. But I know death doesn't always come in summer. It may come any time, including winter. And that's what I have been pondering recently.
I have friends, who are old. One of them may be the next one to go. I want to be ready, when the time comes. That is why I have pondered here and there and everywhere about knitting a funeral sweater for myself.
I am Light Spring, so black is not on my list, but cocoa brown is. It is one of my neutrals. I think cocoa brown is neutral enough to wear during a funeral. I have the yarn. I am only missing the pattern.
How on earth? Well, I haven't chosen the pattern yet.
How can that be?
I haven't found the right pattern yet. I am still searching. I hope this one pattern I have already re - written and printed for myself, could be the one. I don't know, if it really is the one. The pattern I tried before this didn't fit my plans. I hope this one does.
But before I can knit the actual funeral sweater of the actual yarn I have, I need to make a test version. The meaning of the test version is to find out if this pattern is the one and the kind of that fits. I sure hope this is the one, even the increases and decreases make it swallow a lot of time and yarn. But knitting the test version is the only way to find out, if this pattern is the one I can wear during a funeral.

Secret knitting keeps going

Dear readers,I wish I could even whisper you what I have on my needles, but believe me, it's better that I stay silent. I can tell you only this: they are surprises. One of them is such a surprise I do not even know where it goes. I want to get it done, though.

Banana ice cream must wait a little bit longer

Dear readers, I got something done, yes, but it's not what I told you earlier. This project is a scarf. It is an ice cream scarf, but it's not banana ice cream with whipped cream. Instead it is pear - raspberry - blueberry - ice cream.
How does it look like?
Here's the answer.

Whipped cream on banana ice cream

Dear readers,I have a secret plan. It is not food item. No one can wear food, be it the name is pretty delicious. I agree. It is. But this project is not something to eat. It is something to wear. I hope from the bottom of my heart, that it will succeed. It's a surprise, so I'd rather keep it under wraps until the end, and that may take some time. And later I must make that Hot Chocolate version as well. But let's not get ahead of things. Banana ice cream must be done first.
