Finished With A Few Days To Spare
Finished in time for my niece Haleys' first birthday on Sunday. What a delightful pattern, this one is definately a 'do again'. I used Zara which is a lovely soft merino wool, and is also machine washable and the pattern came from STYK. The hardest part, after I took a dip in the *frogging pond that is, was finding a button to finish it off. Out of all the pink buttons at Spotlight there was only one that was the same pink as the cardigan, luckily it was the right size.
I am going to take part in my very first Knitalong, and I am extremely excited about it. I have wanted to be part of one for a long time now but everytime I find one I like it is either finished or pretty close to being so. I found The Central Park Hoodie Knitalong thanks to Cindy and she will also be taking part.
This is what we will be knitting and the pattern is in the Fall issue of Knitscene. If you want to join us head on over here and get the details. I have ordered the yarn already in anticipation for this KAL, which doesn't start until September, I could not get the yarn that the pattern suggested but have instead gone with some Rowan Tweed Aran, yum!!
