I hope you all have had a great summer! The kids are back to school this week and things are slowly getting back to normal. I've been knitting a bit this few weeks finishing a kofte and casted on a couple of new projects, but mostly I've been crocheting on a forgotten project. More about that later this week :)
So more about my kofte. It's Loppa or the Flea cadigan by Pinneguri. Skeindeer Knits and Voolenvine have been hosting a knit along for this cardigan this summer. And they still haven't set an end date so you have time to cast one on.
I knitted mine in leftovers from my Setesdal kofte. It's the same grey, but it looks so different with purple instead of pink.

I decided to do my own twist on the patterning at the bottom of the sleeves and the body and picked two of the colours I liked best.
I did the waist shaping and I think it looks good. The photo was taken on a really sunny day so the colours are more true in the above photoes.
We have been hiking a bit and spent time in the forest at our lean-to picking cloudberries. And I really hope we will have a great autumn so we can do more of it! It's in the outdoors and in nature I feel that I can build up new energy and gather inspiration.
