A Cardigan For Arwen

071022-02

I've finished my Arwen cardigan! The knitting part of the obsession is finished but now I am obsessed with wearing it. Why yes, as a matter of fact I do own other cardigans but no, I won't wear them. ;-)

The stats: A Cardigan For Arwen from Interweave Knits Winter 2006 knit with Cascade 220 in colour #7813 on the needles recommended in the pattern.

I knit this exactly according to the pattern but if I were to knit it again I would knit the two fronts and back all in one piece to the arms. I would also knit the hood in one piece and leave live stitches on the back and shoulders so I could join the shoulders and hood to the back with Kitchener stitch.

Overall though this was a really fun knit with interesting construction and I love it.

'Nuff said.

I'm Baaaaaaack!

Well, after a year's flirtation with Typepad and a blog break - I'm back. Back to blogging and back to Blogger.

I'll eventually move all of my Typepad posts over here but it will take a while. The Typepad blog will disappear sometime soon so update your feeds if you want to keep in touch!

I've had an amazingly busy month so no knitting or spinning to show. Things are getting back on track though and soon, hopefully, I'll have pics of projects finished and in progress. :-)
