Krrrriono Sweater 

First of all, Michele Wang has started podcasting!! I’m talking about THE Michele Wang who has designed all those gorgeous patterns. Don’t miss an episode! 

On my needles there is my Krrrriono sweater  (=I’m freezing in Greek with a few dramatic rrrs). I’m knitting this sweater for wearing it at work. Working in a fishfarm is really challenging in every season. Summer is too hot and winter is too cold. Knitting for this dirty environment is a waste of yarn and time but I believe this sweater will keep me warm. 

Thank you all for your response on my Essential Sweater. You are the best!

The second sock

I have two half pairs of socks that need their other half to be finished so I can use the needles to knit more socks. My Dreaming of Vacations Socks will be done today or tomorrow the latest. After that, the other half pair is next. See, no second sock syndrome here 😉

I believe you all know Molly from A Homespun House, who hadn’t recorded for 3 months or so and now has a new episode which if you haven’t already see, you definitely should. Isn’t she an amazing dyer? Oh her yarns! She knows color as no one does! 

I can’t wait to see what you are knitting this week.

Restart 

If you see no progress in my Beach Cover, it’s because on Monday I used a larger cable to check how it fits and it was huuuuge. So I ripped it off and restarted from scratch. I didn’t mind since this stitch in 6,5mm needles will help this dress fly off my hands in no time. I believe that it will be finished by the next week. Or at least I’ll try.

Do you know Katie? She is a true performer. And a knitter. And amazing sewer. Can’t beat that! Tune in with Inside Number 23 Podcast. Trust me. You won’t regret it.

Beach essentials 

This week I’m all over beach wearing since I’m living and breathing for the end of August when I’ll get myself on a plane and join my family on vacations. 

My Deep Blue Sea Top is half way done and I started knitting a Beach Cover using the lovely yarn Veronica gifted me. I don’t think the 4 balls of yarn I have will be enough for the loose dress I’m planning, but I trust my improvisation will lead me somewhere beautiful. 

My Creative Garage Podcast is accompanying me while I’m knitting. Vanessa and her daughter are great crafters. They count only 6 episodes so far, but their podcast is definitely worth checking it out.

Mixed season knitting 

My Missoni Maxi Skirt is off to be blocked 🙂 So I’m allowed to cast on whatever I want! La la la! 

Kristin (aka voolenvine) from the Yarngasm Podcast was a true delight to knit with. If only I could get her absolutely gorgeous hand dyed yarn on my hands…. One day my friends! One day I will!

In present time, I already casted on and finished a baby sweater and now I have on the needles a beach top which I named Deep Blue Sea Top after the yarn’s colors. I’m going for something like this to wear with my bikini. 

I’m also making socks with cuffs,heels and toes in egg yoke yellow, since the leftovers from the self striping yarn I had wasn’t enough for a full pair, and I’m sooooo loving them! I decided this way is to be the second pair out of any sock yarn I have. These socks will be my Dreaming of Vacations Socks because, my dears, this year I’m going to take a week off work and join my family on vacations! 

I’m talking about spending all day by the sea, swimming, sleeping, summer movie cinema, being with loved ones and knitting with my mum and grandma! I will rest! 

I hope you’re having a great time or at least planning to do so.
