I'm house sitting for John and Lisa this weekend, spending quality time with my favorite puppies.hold still dogs!oh how precious!I'm working on a sweater this weekend from (one of) my new books, Fitted Knits by Stefanie Japel. I really love a lot of the designs in this book.
I'm making the short-sleeved cardi with ribbing. I'm using Cotton-tots yarn in white and yellow. I like being able to try it on as I go. I'm working on the back decreases now and will probably start on the ribbing tonight.
I spent months planning my wardrobe for my trip to Copenhagen (see my initial moodboard from way back in February here) and of course I was still making things at the last minute. On my last two big trips to Europe and Japan, I found the weather to be too cold for my wardrobe, which is really not surprising considering I live in Los Angeles where it’s basically summer all year round. So for Copenhagen in early May I wanted to be extra prepared. I had made a turtleneck using the Piper Top pattern but the fabric and cut are a little drafty to satisfy my warm layer goals. I wanted something that would be a closer fit with a softer fabric and this top jumped into my sewing queue.
