on your lovely pattern’s well-deserved popularity! I’ve had Stockholm queued up
on The Rav ever since the weather turned a touch icy here in Somerset.
Were I to get the chance to knit Stockholm in a Tanis colourway, I think I’d
have to plump for Mallard. All that blue-green sheen would zing up my winter
clothing for sure!”
I’ve been thinking about doing a little upcycling with the old wardrobe lately ( mainly because I’m trapped in maternity clothes and they are getting kind of old). Consider this:
This is a lovely (and expensive!)sweater from Anthropologie, a store filled with clothes I would love to own but most days cannot afford. I pinned it ages ago as something that I thought would be an amazing project for up-cycling a cardigan- adding knitted ribbing, and embroidering on the stitches.
It occurred to me the other day that I have a cardigan this colour that I hardly ever wear (although more simple, without the reversed seams of this one), because I find it sort of blah. and I certainly have some cream coloured yarn in my stash. I already have everything I need! So- this is my public declaration of taking on recreating (more or less) this sweater at home. Let’s see how well I do! I’ll be sure to keep careful notes, in case this is a wonderful upcycling success and others wish to give it a go. of course, it could just as easily be a yarn bombed disaster that doesn’t look stylish at all…. Stay tuned!
