Finished Project(s) + New Project

I finally finished this sweater that I started ages ago. It's knit out of Araucania Ranco Sock, and I used Lana Grossa Merino Superfein for the circles. It's far too warm to wear a sweater right now, so I put it away immediately and started knitting squares for a blanket out of my left-over yarn.
The painting is a rather large FO by my eldest daughter Jessica, who brought it back from school now that she graduated.

DMC Water Soluble Canvas

Yesterday I used DMC water soluble canvas for the first time. I wanted to do some cross-stitching on a pair of jeans, and the water soluble canvas proved to be great for that. It was really easy to  work with and I'm very pleased with the result. It is quite expensive stuff though, so it was worth saving the scraps for future small projects.

Haarlemmerhout

Het bleek vandaag geen weer te zijn voor de geplande NS-wandeling, maar de Haarlemmerhout is ook mooi (al regende het daar na een tijdje ook, en de diverse apparaatjes gaven aan dat dat nog wel even kon duren. Maar dat mocht de pret niet drukken, we hebben het er prima naar onze zin gehad.

Sweaters into Cushion Covers

Many years ago I knitted each of my daughters a Peppy-sweater. Of course they have long since outgrown their sweaters, but I couldn't just throw them away. So this weekend I turned each sweater into a cushion cover. It was a fun project, and both of my daughters are pleased with their new cushion.

Yesterday was a hectic day, but it was a good one! Today was nice and quiet, which was good too.
