Pattern: Vappu by Suvi Simola
Yarn: Cascade 220 heathers colour # 2425 (leftovers from this)
A few months ago Suvi and Mari Muinonen released a stunning collection of patterns as a hardcopy book in Finnish as well as 2 PDFs in English called 'Hold Your Needles'. I absolutely love the work of both of these designers so I waited for this collection with great excitement. It has a wide assortment of sweaters and accessories and there are many, many I want to knit.
I'm working on several of my own designs right now and I felt guilty jumping into a sweater but I decided I really could use a new set of mitts and hat. These only took a few nights to make and they're super warm and cozy. Now, my head is burning up with what I can only assume is the onset of the flu my children have suffered with this week so I'll go lie down. And wish I didn't have a party to attend tonight. Hope your weekend is awesome.
