Knitting in colour - y e l l o w

A new post in the "Knitting in colour"-series inspired by Judith. And the colour is yellow! I notice that many say pass, - sorry, I don't have any yellow projects. But I do - yellow used to be my favourite colour. As a child, I felt that an outfit without yellow in it, was really dull, I felt grey without something yellow, as if the yellow would lighten me up as the sun.

I'm actually knitting in yellow at the moment: This is my Easter knitting that I mentioned in my postcard in the last post.

I don't use as much yellow as I did as a child, and I do worry that this Audrey in Unst-cardigan will be too yellow... but we'll see. The pattern is from Twist Collective autumn 2009, and the designer is Gudrun Johnston. Pickles sold their "Easter-coloured" yarn with 20% discount, and on an impulse, I bought this Sunflower yarn. I had been looking for yarn for this cardigan for a while, and this fine merino yarn had the right weight.

But I have some finished projects, too:

My own design, the yellow scrap gnomy.

And last, but not least, my Corset Tank Top , by Annie Modesitt .

Denne oppgaven løste du med glans! Toppen din var kjempefin, og den gule genseren gleder jeg meg til å se ferdig!

Ooh, that cardigan is going to be so pretty! I love that color. :) The hat is very cute and the top looks great too. :)

Jammen hadde du masse lekkert i gult. Har ikke tenkt å melde pass, vet at jeg har et par gule plagg liggende et sted. Men så lekre som disse er de definitivt ikke.
