I do still knit things other than charity scarves, you know? Not much, but I do. To prove that, here are my two WIPs at the moment: a pair of hotpants and a skirt.
The hotpants are made with Marnie MacLean's pattern Assets of Evo. I am using a microfiber yarn given to me years ago called Junghans Wolle Opal. It's a lovely smooth yarn with a great sheen! I can't wait to see my bum in it :D
My gauge is as usual off, so I am working the size S, which will propably come out as size L. Im already at the crotch, so these should be finished very soon, as I am not planning on making the double-stitch picture on them.
The second WIP is almost an UFO already - a woolen skirt. You can imagine I'm not so keen on knitting on it in June!
It's the famous Lanesplitter from Knitty, and I am making it with Novita Julia and Puro yarns (wool blend and wool). There's not much to knit before the decrease rows start, but I am happily burying this project in my knitting closet until fall sets in.
What are you working on the moment? Please share in the comments!
Your hotpants are gonna look great... love your choice of color. Are you going to use black for the embroidery and trim? Marnie's designs are to die for.
Thanks for your comment! I'm 99% done with them now! I'm not going to do the embroidery at all; for the trim I chose a steel grey tone. I'll post pics when they're done :)
What vibrant colors for a hot pants. I would love to see these finished and worn. Keep it up!
