After finishing my Meramid I've got the strong feeling that I MUST knit one more Falkenberg design. So I started Lastrada. I'm using my own yarn selection: it is black baby-alpaca yarn and a variegated baby-curl yarn from FleeceArtist. It looks great and I'm not yet decided which side will be the "right" side - both sides look great. I will decide if the jacket has become bigger.
Thi cast-on row was a nightmare.... I had to cast on more than 360 stitches. I placed a marker after each 50 stitches to reduce the effort for counting and counting again and again.
We will start to a week vacation Saturday morning and I'm quite sure Lastrada will travel with us and I hope I will have plenty of knitting time. We will travel to Southern Europe to find some sunshine.
