I don't know what it is about spring that makes me want to knit sweaters. This year I'll blame it on a solid week of cold, gray rainy days.
This is my first attempt at knitting a cardigan and I'm pretty happy with it. I looked long and hard for a pattern and finally settled on The Pure and Simple Neck-down Cardigan by Diane Soucy. I really dislike seaming, and the thought of knitting three separate pieces, plus arms, put me off traditional cardigan patterns. The yarn, my favorite Cascade 220, I bought in April at WEBS at great discount. (Hint: Cascade 220 is still on sale this month.)
I'm so glad I made a small; I'm at my heaviest weight right now since I haven't been able to bike as much this spring, and there's plenty of room for layering underneath.
I have more pictures and details on my Ravelry page.
Here's something else I got today:
My son urged me to buy it as a Mother's Day gift for myself. How could I resist? It has a. kittens b. American flags c. flowers d. glitter (which, sadly, doesn't show up in the photo) and e. high tackiness factor, something I look for in a t-shirt I wear to bed.
Happy Mother's Day!
