Loppem


I bought Norah Gaughan Vol. 3 a few weeks ago, because I loved every design in the book. Norah is a design genius. I usually like to work on only one project at a time, but Loppem kept calling me to be knit, so I put Ingenue (with only one sleeve left to knit) on hold for a few days. I couldn't help myself. Once I started Loppem, I just couldn't put my needles down. It was like reading a good book. You can't put it down until it is finished. There is a lot of errata on this pattern, but it was a seamless (and no sleeves) knit which made it knit up fairly fast. I used Berroco Palace yarn in a green color only because my LYS didn't have enough of the blue, but I think the green works too.


This is my son's artistic shot.

Lovely! I know what you mean about a pattern calling you. I feel like I have a bunch of voices in my head calling me to knit :).

Love the artistic shot!

She really is a genius designer isn't she. It looks fantastic and sounds like a really quick knit! And anyway, when you gotta cast on you just gotta cast on!

Your Loppem is just beautiful. I have hesitated to make one because I couldn't picture myself wearing a short-sleeved sweater. But now that I see yours, I think I get it. It's really lovely on you!
