Wollmeise WIPs

I’ve finally been knitting a lot again lately, so expect quite a few of WIP/FO post in the near future. I’ve finished my Birdseed Cardigan, but the weather has been too rainy and dreary to get any good pictures. So I figured I’d show you what else I’ve been working on recently.

First up, the Tie-Neck Jumper from 1948 in Wollmeise Lace. The colour is Amethyst Dark and – as usual with purple and Wollmeise – the colour is much brighter and more vibrant in real life. I’m absolutely loving it so far, but it is taking fairly long because of the small needles. I’ve finished the back (as you can see in the picture) and I’m about half-way through the front.

Here’s a WIP shot of another Wollmeise Lace project, this time in Grünfink. I finished the knitting on this a year ago, but in the mean time a critter of some kind ate a hole in it. Luckily it was only about 10cm below the cast off edge and I had enough yarn to reknit that bit. (This is why I now do not only keep my yarn in plastic boxes but my FOs too). It’s one of my own designs, but I’m not yet completely sure if it will make it to the completed pattern stage. It’s all stockinette, so I’m still debating whether or not to crochet a little edge around it to take some of the curl out. On the other hand, the curl is quite nice in this design. Once the ends are woven in and the sun is shining again, I’ll post a shot of it without a crocheted edging, and then I’d love to hear your suggestions!
