latest testknits part 3

now to the last two testknits i lately did...

i had the pleasure to knit another adorable boxy sweater for
my dear jo 
worked from the top down, with an amazing tubular cast on
(can you image that this was the first time i did a tubular cast on in my knitting life????)
skinny sleeves and plenty of ease for the body

after working with this beautiful handdyed green yarn
which i used for miyayo's Lin-Lin Shawl 
i was in need of a sweater in this color!
so i spend some time with undyed fingering and some ashford dyes
and here we are:

the only thing i changed was to shorten the body (only a little 
this time - final length from underarm 41 cm)
and i did a different bottom ribbing - just for fun

pattern. boxy-and-buttony by Joji Locatelli
yarn. wollknoll-kammgarn-20/6 (dyed with ashford dyes)

think i will wear this to dead! .... love, love, love my new sweater

the last testknit i did was an asymmetric triangular shawl
designed by sylvie (poloetcie on rav)

this shawl is very light and absolutely cozy and soft
the pattern will be available in cooporation with WalkCollection
in late september

pattern. la havane by Polo Sylvie 
yarns. holst-garn-samarkand and midara-silk-mohair and some
unlabled lace weight silk-cashmere blend for the lace section

now....i think i am ready with all those beauties i forgot to mention here....
the next tests are on the needles...

have a nice sunday ladies ;)
