Ventetid - stranded colourwork advent cardigan by KnitLizzy Ventetid - stranded colourwork advent cardigan by KnitLizzy
DONE! FINALLY!
This was one of the two KAL advent cardigan calendars I joined last year. I knew I didn't have enough time to do anything but Christmas presents, but I just had to cast on for two KAL cardigans in the middle of it all. This one was a 4 clue KAL, one clue for every sunday in advent and it was designed and hosted by the amazing designer Kristin Wiola Ødegård. I managed to knit about 15cm on the body before I had to tuck it away in UFO land. With Christmas presents, birthday presents, commissions, smaller ego knits and work in general, I haven't been able to work on it at all until about a month ago. The sleeves flew by and the yoke went like a dream. The other advent cardigan calendar have fallen behind a bit again. I picked it back up about the same time as this one, but I'm still missing a sleeve and some work on the yoke, so stay tuned for that one.

I was not too happy with my colour choices on this one, I'm not big on purple and pink, but I was determined to use stash yarn and I had a lot of purple lying around in different tones that I could use which also made it perfect for advent seeing as purple is the colour of advent...atleast over here it is...
But I'm actually pretty pleased with this! The colours compliment me pretty well if I may say so myself. The pattern was amazing as always by the talented Wiola and I might have to make another one if I can decide on another colour combination.

Yarn: Kauni and Tines - 100% yarn
Needles: 3-3,5mm
