Beautiful Projects – Veyla…with flowers

November 24, 2015 0 Comments

It probably wouldn’t be a huge surprise to learn that these Beautiful Projects posts are usually inspired by what’s on my needles, or what I want to be on my needles. This week after finishing up my Saudade hat from Knitworthy 2 my WIP basket fell over right before my eyes, without even touching it. An unfinished pair of Veyla spilled out, so with just a little work I had another gift to give and my basket was a little less like a mountain.

There are some lovely versions of this very quick, and elegant pattern. I kept being drawn to the projects that feature flowers, probably something to do with the grey, damp and cold weather we have in Scotland just now. These lovely mitts make me feel a little sunnier.

These beautiful mitts by MrPuffy are knit in Blue Sky Alpapa Royal, and you can read more about them on her blog.

Rowsgarden’s Veyla are knit in a lucious combination of alpaca, silk and cashmere from The Knitting Goddess.

This lovely pair were knit by Suzanne Alise in Garnstudio Drops Fabel, and you can find more about them over on her blog.

I love the rich green of Kjord’s version, ‘The last of the green.’

And finally, AnneChartreuse took these pictures of her Veyla after an afternoon of plant shopping, something I love to dream about in November!
