There’s nothing nicer than seeing how one of your ideas is molded in the hands of another knitter. It is truly inspirational and makes you realize that “a design” is just a starting point for everyone’s imagination.
Sara Gresbach, aka Addiesma, has used one of my absolutely favorite colorways, bloomsbury, and knit a wonderful version of “Criollo”. Her cardigan is so delicate, feminine and beautiful, just like Sara :-)
Sara did make some modifications to the design and I must say they are wonderful. She says: “I really love the original design, I just didn’t have it in me at the end of the day when I finally sat down to work on it. It just needed to be a little more simple and go a little faster. The mock cable was the perfect mod for me and my knitting “personality.” And this is exactly what I can see in the photos. A “Criollo” with a pinch of Sara’s soul.

Last week was very busy. First my son got sick and had to stay home. You know what it’s like when your child skips kindergarten and all your plans fall through. Well, it happened to me… Thankfully I managed to publish a cardigan design made in wonderful Malabrigo Sock – Criollo .
At the moment the cardigan is at a 10% discount on Ravelry. You do not need to type in any coupon code, just add it to cart and voila.
When Wojtek went back to kindergarten, I was still busy as I volounteered to help his teachers on a trip to a farm. We had so much fun and it was truly good quality time spend with my kiddo. It did keep me away from the keyboard and working though.
But it does not mean I’m not working at all. I am. Three more collaborations are coming in the very near future and I must say I’m truly excited about each of them as they are made with yarns created by very talented dyers.
I also finished a new cardigan design called “Carabe” so a lot of typing is ahead of me.
Hope you and I have a wonderful weekend now!
