the knitting bug has totally caught me. shortly after finishing my early bird winter, i started knitting another sweater for me. the yarn is really chunky, very soft and i love the different shades of mainly deep blue in it! i am dreaming of wearing it on chilly evenings at the beach (of which i hope there will be many (beach evenings, not necessarily chilly...) this year, be it the elbe or the baltic sea).
first, i wanted to follow the pattern by jane richmond for the oatmeal pullover. but, simple as it is, as a relative beginner i still found it a bit hard to follow, especially as i'm not used to reading knitting patterns in english. so i decided to make my own pattern, starting at the bottom of the pullover and knitting in a round. i'm hoping the sweater will end up looking like the oatmeal pullover. well, we'll see. i'll keep you posted :)
