Sweater for my husband is finished

I have finished the sweater for my husband...*yeahjjj*
It fits him perfectly and I love seeing him wearing it. I made some adjustment along the way to make it the way I wanted it.

The pattern is from Navia and the yarn is also Navia.
On Saturday we went for a drive and ended up in a new yarnshop. I boughted yarn and pattern for a dress which I started knitting last night. Yellow yarn...yiiiks...that's a brand new color for me but hey I'm gonna try something new :-)

New knitty

The new Knitty is out...yeahhhh

Most tempting pattern for me is the Shetlander.

Maybe that's a good thing now that I have all these other projects that I need to finish :)

On the needles right now

I have a few projects on the needles right now. Some of them I would really love to finish but I need the energy to pick them up again and not be tempted of other exciting patterns.

The oversized bolero from Rasmilla has been on my needles for a while. I'm looking forward to finish it and to wear it but I really need to pick it up to finish it :)

This was actually a Christmas gift but I didn't finish it in time and now it's just on hold. I plan on finish it but it's not on top of my list. Love the creativity of this simple pattern. The pattern is Sarah by Jytte Slente.

This was also a Christmas gift. My plan was to knit both of my grandmothers one each but this was a project where you really have to focus so I think I realised that I wouldn't make it in time for christmas. But I plan on finish it maybe it will be a birthday present instead. The pattern is Aran Felted Hot Water Bottle by Ann Budd.

And then the most exciting project on my needles right now. A sweater for my husband. He has never wanted to wear knitwear but suddenly one day he asked me when I was gonna knit him a sweater. I got so excited that we sat down and found a pattern he liked and now the sweater is on the needles. This is a pattern from book 8 by Navia.

Wrist warmers

The weather has been so cold and I really missed a pair of wrist warmers. A shop near my workplace had a sale and I got some skeins of Marks & Kattens Sarek to 30% off. I casted on a pair of wrist warmers and here they are :
