Photography and Knits by Elise Sophie

norwegian flowers, books in a stack on the bedside table, cups of tea, films with lots of swearing, pincushions shaped as mushrooms, cats with big hearts, friends with many names and flavours, music with a lot of dimensions, knitting needles that mysteriously disappear, and yarn. lots of yarn.

FO: Cable Cloud Cowl + a sneek peak

Hello again!

It's been a while since I blogged, but I've been busy knitting, spending time with my dear sister and otherwise being really enthused about future plans that are yet to be revealed (har har). Stay tuned for that, it will be so amazing!!
I've got some lovely pictures to show you of my finished Cable Cloud Cowl, which I finally took yesterday with said sister as my model. I couldn't be more happy about it - it turned out exactly the way I had envisioned, and is even more cuddly and cosy than I expected!
You can find the (k)nitty gritty of it on my ravelry project page, if you are so inclined. (Or read my previous blog post!)

Now to the photos!

For a 5'4" person this is a bit of a wide, or should I say deep, cowl, but once it's folded it works:

All that's left to say is that this project was FUN! It inspired me and motivated me to do more Christmas knitting, and has got me working on a wee "design" of my own:

This is just a sneek peak, but I promise I'll be back with more photos once it's finished. This new stitch has gotten me on a roll - I'm thinking of trying it out on a background of garter stitches, maybe for a shawl? I'm excited to try it out!
(By the way, I'm in love with this colourway of Pickles Tweedy! It's called Perle, and can be found here.)

Hope you are all enjoying the last weekend in May - it's gone so fast!!

Thank you, Nicole! I'm excited to see how the yarn behaves when it's been soaked and blocked, it certainly promises to be squishy and warm! :)
