I'd hoped to debut this cardigan during SSS, but the weather didn't cooperate. But today's the day!
I'm really pleased with this sweater. It was enjoyable to knit (top-down! no seams!), and I absolutely love the yarn. It's very possible that I might make this again sometime in another color.
- Pattern: Featherweight by Hannah Fettig
- Yarn: Cascade Heritage Silk, color 5642
- Needle: US 4 (3.5 mm)
- I did the edging around the front in K1P1 rib instead of stockinette stitch, to keep it from rolling
I should also mention the dress, which I made two years ago but I don't think has ever appeared on the blog. It's Simplicity 2703, made from a cotton print I bought on one of my trips to Surplus City. Great pattern, and again, I could see myself making another version in the future. If I do, I think I'll add a few inches of length to the bottom of it, because it does ride up a bit when I sit in my chair.
Perfect weather for a sleeveless dress with tights and a cardigan. And this outfit will take me from day to night, as I have a date after work to celebrate eight years of marriage to my sweetie, Anthony (aka Adverb). We'll be having dinner at this yummy Lebanese restaurant. Mmmm...tabbouleh....
