I finished Ginevra, but since it's 80+ degrees out, I didn't put it on. It really should be worn to show off the cool neck, but, we'll make due with these photos for now.
I was having a hard time finding a nice lace color to match the pink body as it's worsted and the neck is lace. I had lots of pinks, but none that matched or shaded close (some shaded too close). I finally decided on this blue-gray. I like it, especially with the sparkles and with adding it into the sleeve and hem edges to tie in the color. What do you think?
another pattern that I had a great time knitting. Yay! Next up is a cardigan that I'm knitting for my Mother in Law Mary Ann. She gave me the pattern to knit for her. It's from Joann's website, although I can't find it on there. I think it's been discontinued. Here's the information from the sheet of paper she gave me:
I don't think I can give you a picture of the pattern instructions as that would be copyright infringement I'm pretty sure. But I'll show you a picture of the finished cardigan from the front of the page so you can see what I"m making.
cute, huh? I'm using Caron Simply Soft worsted in the sage colorway so the color matches pretty good. I finished the body part before I did the sleeves (although it called for me to do the sleeves first). Now, of course, I'm ready for the sleeves and I don't have them done yet!
One sleeve down and one to go, then I can join the whole caboodle at the top and do the yoke thing to the collar.
and I'm happy to be using some of the deep stash on this one. I forgot I had a whole container of Simply Soft that I bought. At this point I am thinking with all the spinning I have to do (fleeces coming out the ying yang) and all the yarn I have, I'm definitely approaching S.A.B.L.E. For those of you not familiar, that's stash acquisition beyond life expectancy. I better get more projects going!!! Talk to you soon!
