Need something fast and easy and gratifying and not in your queue and not necessary and not a priority but you want to cast on anyway and finish with lightening speed? Knit this!
- Pattern: Knitting Pure & Simple #294, Open Summer Cardigan
- Needles: US 10/12 and US 8 (pattern is meant to use worsted weight at a loose gauge of 3.5 sts=1")
- Size: 37" (meant to be worn open)
Yarn: 4 skeins Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Dyed Cotton, 637, Raspberry
Yup - you read that right - only 4 skeins. And guess what else???
I knit this in 48 hours!
OK - I will grant you that I was highly motivated, but seriously folks, this flew off the needles. And why wouldn't it - size US10 1/2 needles! And talk about the yummiest, softest, most cuddle-up-with-me cotton! Oy.
God, do I ever hate taking pictures of my knits. Hate hate hate it. I look so cheesy.
At any rate - gonna have to knit this again in another color (thinking Granite...hmmm). That's saying something, too, because I have rarely knit something twice (with the exception of dishcloths and socks).
Still working on FO pics of the Botanica Medallion. It was a busy week last week - Mallory turned 2 on Thursday and Campbell turned 6 on Friday! Congratulations girls - I love you!
