Awesome FOs: Carabe by JennEmerson

I love matching colors together and the more surprising combo I get, the more excited I am. I love blue paired with green, pink with turquoise, gray with orange… The possibilities are endless. Last year I made Carabe, which is a sweater created for everyone to have fun mixing colors.

There are many beautiful Carabe’s made by talented knitters around the world and I love them all, however, Jenn’s Carabe is my personal fav. It’s so subtle and the colors Jenn paired together are truly maginificent. Look at that shade of blue (though most men would probably call it green :-) on the gray background. Just gorgoeus! I’m sure that if I was to make the sweater again, Jenn would be my inspiration.

Peachick Eyes Cardigan

Did you know that I baby peacock is called a peachick? :-) Me neither. Until I started working on kiddy version of Peacock Eyes Cardigan.

I cast on at the beginning of summer as it was meant to be a summer cardigan – light, airy, perfect to go with a dress or pants. Even though I’d ripped the yoke three times before it was perfect, the knitting was pure pleasure. No wonder as it’s made in Malabrigo Sock.

But then I got stuck on sleeves. Two tiny sleeves! Can you believe that? It took me over a month to make them. All because I had to make them one after another as I was alternating skeins and I didn’t want to cut them to make 4 small balls of yarn.

Today we are finally having nice weather so I took my girl for a walk to take some pics showing this beautiful pink yarn. I think it’s one of the most fabulous shades of pink I’ve seen – perfect for little girls.

The walk was great, though I admit it was a real adventure for her doll. :-D

The pattern should be ready for testing in about two weeks and after the test is complete it will be available on Ravelry as a single download or part of “On a Peacock”s Tail” collection.

Have a great day everyone!
