Tailored Scallops



hi everybody! i am silke from germany. my grandmother tought me to knit and crochet when i was a kid. now i am 31 years old and i simply cant stop.
my husband says i am crazy, buying all those books and having a big shelf filled with yarn....oh well. whenever i find time to knit i enjoy doing it. my kids (almost 3 and 5 years old) usually sit next to me on the couch with a huge hook and some yarn and try to make some knots too. very cute.
i ve had lace style for a couple weeks now and i started working on the jacket from the front cover tailored scallops. i absolutely love the pattern, the yarn i m using is lana grossa royal tweed in a green shade i love.
i dont have that much time to knit with my two punks and i dont like making swatches, so i usually start a project with the smallest piece there is...i already got one sleeve done and i m on the last couple rows of the left front. beautiful!!! i cant wait to get this jacket done so i can wear it. there are so many other projects waiting in that shelf of mine, it might take me a while to get this one done.
i have to go now, thanks for letting me join this blog and keep knitting! i enjoy looking at your projects a lot, they are beautiful!

That is absolutely beautiful! I love the color you chose. And I like your technique of "not swatching" very much!

thank you! i simply dont have the time to knit swatches first, so i try to get lucky with my choice of needles and yarn. it works most of the time.
