Something Finished!

DSC04280
We are taking a break from spinning today for an important announcement: I've finished up my Forest Featherweight Cardi! I did use some of the third skein of yarn to finish up the front/neck bands. I love this pattern and the yarn was perfect for it - very soft and light weight. I used seed stitch at the hem, sleeve edges and the front/neck bands. I pinned it shut on the hanger with a small cable needle, but on a body, it works either pinned or hanging open.

This sweater taught me that I could use a sweater as a take along project. Now I'm not planning on grabbing a super-complex-epic-knitting type of sweater project, but I would definitely do something worked in the round again. The sleeves were a bit fiddly, and they made it harder to pack up my project in my bag, but I could just work sleeves at home instead of out in The Great Wide World.

Now we just have to wait until the temperature drops a little bit so I can wear it!

It's not my design - It's the Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig (not sure about the spelling of the designer's name). If you'll enter Featherweight Cardigan into the pattern search bar in Ravelry, you'll find it.

Beautiful work! I love the colour too. I don't knit a lot of small items, so I always take my current project (cardigan or jumper) with me. It's saved me from many a long, boring hour in a waiting room ;)
