Yarn along

I've almost finished my yoke sweater, but I've decided to reknit the sleeves, because I felt the garment too bulky. Longer, fitted cuffs make it a bit smoother and more flattering. I am also thinking to reknit the lower part of the body with a longer ribbing.

During the past weeks I completed a few small crocheted items.
Here is a super cute apple cozy designed by Kara @ Petals to Picots. I showed you a progress picture before and asked your advice in choosing the perfect color for the wings. I totally forgot that I had a fun yarn  in my stash with slow lilac color-transitions which could be the right one. So here is my finished cozy:

I'd also finished a pumpkin basket as the part of my CAL. On Sunday it had been gifted to my mother-in-law.

Wishing you happy creating!

  1. I think you're very right to make the cuffs longer.
    Nice apple-cozy-owl and beautiful pupkin!

  3. Your sweater is very pretty and that owl, so cut.

  4. Your sweater is coming along really nicely, just in time for the cold weather! x

    I am so in love with that sweater! Well, and that little apple cozy is the bee's knees (sorry, I've just gotten a new med for my fibro and it's making me a little silly)! I think I need to pop over to get that pattern, after all everyone needs at least one apple cozy! :D

  6. Your sweater is amazing! and the other two projects are very cute ;-)

  7. I am just blown away by your talent! (coming over from Ginny's blog). I've been trying to teach myself to knit for a year now and I haven't made it past a simple scarf! Maybe one day when the kids are a bit bigger... dreams... Anyway, well done!

  8. I love the cuff stitch on that sweater.
    Beautiful job!

  9. love the adaptations to your sweater, looks perfect hanni!

  10. I am always impressed with knitters who can adjust a pattern. Beautiful sweater and pumpkin.
