eliada and sleeven

another beautiful summer knit went off my needles last week..
had the pleasure to do a testknit for Svetlana

absolutely in love with this smocked pattern detail.

i did the smallest size of the pattern which gave me
about 1.5 in of negative ease and i think the fit is great
though i love the look of the original with a little ease..

yarn. organic cotton by ICE YARNS
needles. 3.5 mm and 4 mm circulars
pattern. eliada by Svetlana Volkova [aka tweedysheep]

needed a break from my laceweight testknit (twist cardi)
for Judy, cause i had some difficulties in understanding
the necessity of some pattern details and in that fact
i was a bit disappointed with my work on this...
got an pattern update and picked it up yesterday... time will come to see, if it works now

so i took the time to work on a testknit for Anke [aka fallmasche] - another winner, i'm sure!!
topdown construction with a modified version of the contiguous
set-in-sleeve method and what can i say:
looooove this cardi

yarns. Angora2 by midara and a light fingering merino/ acrylic
needles. 3.5 mm circulars and dpns

modeled pics to come, it's blocking right now ;)

have a crafty weekend
