Growing Sweet Pea

I sure deserve a break after knitting Tutti Frutti with needles 3.3 mm. The rest is not from knitting but from the thin needles. I am starting to feel that I need a better boost so that I am conditioned for my Fall knitting. As usual , the yarn used is not first trial. I tried to knit with Toccata ( bought in Hong Kong) but the gauge was too big. Millifili from Filatura DiCrossa seems to be just right for this design. Again, I can tell it's going to be a fitted sweater but I need to keep in mind that's the right way for cotton yarns.


I had a wonderful time knitting at this open air tea house. Sipping some tropical fruits hot tea, I enjoyed every little stitch... The table was perfect at this time because this design requires me to follow the chart. It looks fairly simple but I couldn't find a very logical flow in certain parts. The place was full; however, I was so lucky to arrive and seat at the best front table with a great view. It was rather a cloudy day and not so hot as usual. Towards the end, it started to rain a bit but I still stayed firm in my chair. I couldn't let the few drops take away those enjoyable moments. My persistence lasted for another half hour and by then, most customers were gone . It was a signal that we have to leave since the place was about to close as well. But it was a great time to take a picture of my Sweat Peas in full view, no stares at me! ;)


By now, I have already finished the back part and I am working the front. Sounds like it's going to be a quick knit if I can manage to start the sleeves soon. I hope I don't break the flow. Once I fall into that, I find it very hard to be motivated again.

I'll be back soon with progress pictures of Sweet Pea.

I could almost feel how relaxing it must have been to sit and knit in front of that tranquil view. Lovely colour and pattern for your Sweetpea.
