things could get ugly

This is the beginnings of Hekla, a cool top designed and beautifully modeled by Cirilia Rose. The construction is pretty neat. You start out by knitting a striped scarf and the rest of the sweater builds off from there. It has been a while since I knitted anything so wildly impractical...this could either end up looking edgy and fun or kind of ugly. Keeping my needles crossed that it will be the former. Either way, I will have a head start on Halloween :)

Leaving you with some pictures of my hydrangeas in bloom. I have a few hours to myself this afternoon so planning on sitting outside with my knitting and taking in the glorious summer weather.

(linking up with WIP Wednesday)


  1. Oh, your hydrangeas are gorgeous!! One of these days, I am planing one in my yard. Jury is out on the sweater. Interesting design, just not my cup of tea.

    1. I know...it's either a love it or hate it kind of design, LOL.

  2. What an interesting top concept! I love the colors in your yarn.

  3. I don't know what the finished product looks like, and I'm not going to look because I want to be surprised!

  4. I definitely think edgy cool is going to win out! love the pattern!!!

  5. I'm jealous of your gorgeous flowers! I love the pattern you shared. I think not only is the construction super cool, but the design and fit. I think it will look amazing on you!

  6. Gorgeous pattern, I've not seen that before. Very clever design.

  7. What a cool design! I can't wait for your to take shape. I bet it's fabulous!
