One More Finished Object

minimalistcardidone


As I said over the weekend, I got sleeves sewn into both sweaters before I started Oblique, so today I give you the finished Minimalist Cardi! As soon as I got this all finished up and the ends woven in, the temperature around here shot up to 90 degrees so I haven't been able to wear it yet, but I'm sure I can find someplace around here that's over air conditioned. I really like the way this yarn feels and the way it knits up. I used Shelridge Farm's Wool/Cotton blend. The cotton doesn't dye with the wool so you get little pale speckles in the yarn which does give it a bit of a rustic look, but it also adds personality. Also, I don't know if it really shows up in the photo, but this isn't a true solid, it's a handdyed solid, so while it is overall a single color, there are variations in the shades of the color. Now, if the temp would just drop a little bit...

It's cool and rainy in southwestern Ontario -- send it up and I'll break it in for you. Love the Shelridge farms wool/cotton! Love the sweater too. Now the temperatures will soar so I have to wait to make one of my own. ; )
