Now I Just Need An Easter Bonnet

26 March 2009

AT LONG LAST I finished the cardigan I’d designed for the Easter Show.  Well, no, that’s not strictly true.  When I started it, I hadn’t really thought about the Easter Show but the time went on, I hadn’t finished it, I’d promised myself I’d enter SOMETHING this year, so this cardigan became IT.

Unfortunately that meant I wasn’t quite as meticulous as I should have been but what the heck.  It’s finished and it’s wearable.  Not entirely sure that it isn’t mutton dressed as lamb though – but someone told me once that there’s only one thing worse than mutton dressed as lamb, and that’s mutton dressed as mutton.

Now the specs:  It’s knitted with Fyberspates Merino Tencel Sock Yarn.  David brought me two skeins of the variegated one back from England and kind Jen at Fyberspates custom-dyed the plain pink to match.  It took just under 400g and was knitted on 3.25m needles.

If it just gets into the cabinets, I’ll be more than pleased.
