Vogue Cabled Bolero III

In my first posts here I wrote about my Bolero project from Vogue. Finally I’ll finish it!
Frankly speaking this Vogue bolero in ugly. Maybe on the model it looks nice because of the whole created image but in life it’s just ugly. And the main thing that makes it ugly is the collar. It totally distroys the downline of bolero and it looks unfinished.
I made the shawl collar that sheerly changes the total look. Now my project is still unfinished but close to the end. One needed to finish the sleeves and to block it.
For the shawl collar I picked up  the stitches on the neck and knitted it with short rows.
Hope in while to show the final result. Улыбка

Double-Knit with perfect edges CAST-ON

Double color knitting

I continue to discover a world of color knitting. THis time I’ve tried another interesting color knitting technique called Double Knitting. This technique is perfect for small things like hats and scarf. But I saw  sweaters knitted in this technique as well. To my mind they are too thick because of double fabric. Also during knitting one need to watch out not to make mistakes and it is so easy to make a mess.
Here is my try and of corse with mistakes. The idea of this technique is nice. I like it, I will try it in my future projects.
There are also some things that I didn’t like. First that I didn’t like the cast-on because on the other side it is visible. Second  that the beginning/ends of rows do not look nice due to both color yarns are knitted together, Must exist good solutions for these 2 problems.

New DPNs

Today I’ve got new DPNs made of rosewood tree. I have another sizes of these DPNs. I buy them from The LIttle knitting company. They have very nice prices for sich kind of needles because in general rosewood needles are quite expansive.

These needles are very pleasant in knitting.

Unfinished knitting #1

2 years ago i decided to make this west (by Debbie Bliss).  This is the most hard project for me. Why? Because  I hate to knit arans! And for now I have the back part and half of front part. Hard to make myself continue it. Hope to finish it in a while.
2 года вяжу вяжу вяжу эту жилетку и никак не свяжу. Из-за моей неописуемой нелюбви к вязанию аранов – идет она у меня очень тяжело. Готова спинка и половина переда. Не получается себя заставить ее довязать. А надо, так как уж очень она мне нравится.
