Finished Knitting: Mermaids & Centaurs


Done!! Another tiny owl design all knitted up and ready to wear :)  I absolutely love it! Have worn it several times already. No modifications at all, just followed the pattern. I was a little worried about the looooong row of kitchener stitch at the end but tea and Jane Eyre helped me through that.


Pattern    : Ships and Seaside
Yarn : Annell Malmedy
Soundtrack for this project: The Who - Who's next

Here I'm wearing it with my owls cardigan. It's the first garment I've ever knitted, so it always makes me nostalgic ;) I named the cowl 'Mermaids and Centaurs' because the softness and fairytale-ness just reminded me of mystical stories about forests, deep seas... and apple pie for one reason or another.  

It's quite big and cosy, that's why I only steam - blocked it because I was a bit afraid that if I blocked it in my usual way it would turn out to big. Though the yarn is said to be worsted on the label it says it's made for needle size 3,5/4 which I found a bit odd. Anyway I got gauge when I used needle size 5 and the knitted fabric is quite sturdy. So the yarn confuses me a bit... but I don't mind since it turned out allright.

Until next time!

Aha, wil je deze blog wat minder persoonlijk maken? Schrijven over dingen die je leuk inspireren en die je gemaakt hebt enzo? Heb je mijn kaartje trouwens al gekregen?
Knuf!
