....and the last part (testknits)

ok, ok....again it took more time than I thought to get back to this little blog (shame on me....)

here is the last part of the testknits i did


pattern. xanti by Hanna Maciejewska
yarn. unknown fingeringing weight from cone (merino blend)

did mine with cap sleeves and an A-Shape rather than waist shaping, also omitted the contrast colors for the hems

 
 

pattern. forever-more by Justyna Lorkowska
yarn. wollerey-schura-silk held together with holst-garn-titicaca

no major mods, i only added 1 short row section to each half of the shawl due to a slightly tighter gauge.


  

pattern. cathedrale by polo sylvie

i'm still in doubt that i can wear this bright colour....
 

pattern. zippety by Hanna Maciejewska
yarn. midara-angora-2 in light grey + holst-garn-coast---uld-bomuld in col. marlin (which resulted in an adorable, stunningly perfect greyish blue!!!!)

some mods to make this more "me"
shorter body
shorter zipper at the side "seam" (no front zipper)
no front pattern - plain St st for mine ;)
broken rib pattern at the sides from underarm to bottom 

...

still so much work to finish (deadlines over deadlines...)
but we currently do a testknit for this one in the group


and i need to say, this is so much fun (no pressure, no obligations, pure designers heaven - relaxing and fun)
after all the designs i did for companies, mags, books (the most of them secret ones with release dates later this year or in the beg of the next year)....testing the ones for self-publishing makes me feel like "coming home"

love,

isa m.
