Do you know Ambah Obrien ? She’s an australian knitwear designer.
That was, for me, a summer project to make, in shiny and bright summer colors, but, most important : something easy enough to work on, while having a very busy summer, being a wedding photographer all around France (and barely having time to knit).
So I’ve picked these 3 colors, all from my indiedyer online shop
Fleur de tilleul :
and Menthe glaciale :
In total, it took me about a month to knit this Lilli Pilli wrap (but with about 3 weeks without touching my needles at all, being too busy with weddings and driving all around France for it)
So here are some photos of this knitting process 🙂
In Brittany, taking a day off, hiking around, in between 2 intense wedding days, and about 1400 miles driven 🙂
Un petit coucou du phare du paon, tout au bout de l'ile de Brehat, que j'ai décidé d'explorer aujourd'hui, à pied. En fait c est tellement beau là avec cette vue que j ai décidé de faire une pause tricot pour admirer, sentir et ecouter ❤ —– a littlz hello from a beautiful place I'm exploring today: brehat island in Brittany. Hiking all around the island today, I love this view so much (it s the peacock Lighthouse) that I'm taking a break and knit a bit to remember the feel of the wind, the smell of the coast and the sound of seagulls and waves crashing on the rocks. I really love this place ! #travel #knitting #tricot #france
FINALLY ! (working on a lacy shawl with stripes – #lillipilliwrap by @ambahobrien -and that lace part felt like it lasted forever) I can't wait to finish this 🙂 yarn : "cardamome" handdyed merino (link in my bio) —– ce lilli pilli wrap abuse de mon stock de payience mais voilà enfin la 1ere partie de dentelle finie ! allez hop, aux rayures maintenant 🙂 laine : "cardamome " dispo dans ma boutique (lien dans ma bio) #knitting #lace #tricot #knitter #yarnporn
And then, finally, DONE ! 🙂
Of course, someone get curious 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
I think it matches quit greatly with Auvergne summer landscape, don’t you think ?
