… warm colors of autumn …

How I love the changing seasons. The trees are turning in a warm yellow, orange and red…
The soil in the garden is covered with a nice, thick carpet
And I feel inspired …

Some Malabrigo worsted (garnet colorway) Very hard to take a nice pic of this color.

And some Holst garn ‘supersoft’ in beautiful red shades

This yarn feels a bit rough, but it seems it will get supersoft (ha, that’s the name of this yarn 😉 after washing, let’s wait and see … I hope it gets a bit thicker also, because it’s very thin and light.

Couldn’t wait to get started … These lovely colors make me think of poppy’s, flowers in a field. We will see how this turns out, I certainly have enough to make a something tunic-like  (I have 4 50gr skeins of the main color, that’s about 1150m) and I definitely want pockets …

… and amande tee …

And here comes amande tee, the 3rd one in my amande series

Amande tee is a pullover or a tee with a very unusual construction, similar to her sisters amandine cardigan and amande cardigan here and here

It is worked seamlessly, as the amande cardigan, in the round from the shouldertop downwards and sideways. A bit tricky to start the special shoulder shaping, but after that it’s an easy knit. Body and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.

I used two different colors to show off the unique construction.

… amande cardigan …

The first one of the Amande’s is here.

Amande cardigan is a cardigan with a very unusual construction, similar to her sister amandine cardigan here and here

It is worked seamlessly, in the round from the shouldertop downwards and sideways. It’s a bit tricky to start the special shoulder shaping, but after this first challenging part, it’s plain, mindless knitting.

The cardigan is worked flat from the neckopening downwards. The sleeves are worked in the round from the top down and have some matching elbow patches. Stitches are picked at the neck and fronts (cardigan) to work the bands.
