Winter evenings were made for knitting, this I am convinced of :). Especially if you live in the colder climates. This month I started a simple cardigan, I found the pattern on yarnspirations.com . It takes a worsted weight yarn. I picked Briggs & Little’s Heritage 100% wool in blue heather. It’s a beautiful blue, like a new pair of blue jeans. And ! The first project on my new needles ! That’s exciting too lol they are interchangeable circular needles from Knitpicks.com . The needles are so smooth and a dream to knit with , but before I get off in another direction….back to the sweater
I bought 8 skeins of yarn , figuring up the yardage since the pattern called for a different worsted yarn. I’m using 4.5mm and 5mm needles and the pattern is knitting up to gauge and matching the mesurements in the pattern 🙂
Right front started, still have two sleeves to go…..I may have some left overBut that’s better than coming up short, not that I’m worried because there are two local shops that carry this yarn ….I’m in heaven ! Lol
Oh ..just a foot note…no pun intended 😉 but I thought I would use this post to showcase the boot socks I’ve knitted as well. Again Briggs & Little yarn , this time it Tuffy 80% wool and 20% nylon. A little rough and itchy but after the first washing they are soft and fuzzy .
