Keeping warm

We are in the middle of a heatwave. The temperature has been around 30°C all week and it’s going to get hotter before some cold air from the Arctic Sea gets here next week. Just as well I just finished a warm cardigan. Hubby was not happy when I ordered him to put the cardigan on and go outside for a picture. He loves the cardigan though and went along with my whims.

I was given this yarn and I don’t know what it is, but it seems quite warm and I’m guessing it has quite a lot of wool in it and a little bit of some other stuff. The pattern is from a Finnish Novita magazine from 2008. I’m pleased how the cardigan came out. Roll on autumn and winter. Or perhaps even next week would do.

Happy knitting!

Starsky

Ever since my hubby was a little boy, he wanted a Starsky cardigan, from the Starsky & Hutch TV series.

Starsky & Hutch cardigan

This was the only pattern I found. It’s from the magazine ‘Knitting’, winter 2008. He thought it would be fine but when the cardigan was finished, he did think that it was a bit too lady-like for his liking. It’s my Starsky cardigan now.

I’m not crazy about these bathrobe types of cardigans either but it should be warm in the winter. Maybe I’ll learn to wear it at home. I’m thinking that I should try and turn this pattern into a cardigan that’s much thicker and with buttons or a zipper instead of a belt.

Happy knitting!
