Yarn: Drops Alpaca fingering/4-ply weight pure alpaca yarn. Unknown amount used. Purchased in Purl City Yarns in January 2012 as a birthday present to myself. 3.5 mm circular (probably)
another one from the archives!
I’m afraid the notes for this project are somewhere. I do not know where this somewhere is!
I really enjoyed making this cardigan and although the last few rows are long, I don’t remember it being a chore.
Sorry for the lack of modelled shots; I took these photos in October 2012, when I was still quite ill and as a consequence, none of them look very good.
It’s extremely warm and very comfortable. It’s also grown a little since I finished it due to the alpaca basically dragging itself down! This hasn’t been a problem so far, but I will keep you posted if that changes.
2paw – I owe you a very long email. Ditto April. And probably a few other people!
Thanks for the well-wishes. I spent the 7th of January in good company enjoying lovely coffee and cake and fondling many yarns and then spent the next day (my actual birthday) recovering! Not a bad start to the year.
Instead of doing individual FO/WIP posts for the stuff I’ve finished and have on the go I’ll just do a quick-and-dirty round up of some stuff now and some other things later in the month.
I also have a pair of finished wristwarmers, a finished shawl for me, a finished cardigan for my mum (only 3 days late), some things I made for a swap last year, plus a purge of UFOs and probably lots of other stuff I’ve forgotten about.
While it wasn’t an official birthday outing it was close enough (only 2 months late!)
I met up with a couple of my “imaginary” friends off of the t’internet for a morning/afternoon of coffee, gingerbread men and yarn shopping.
Malabrigo Lace in a yummy chocolate brown, pale lilac and baby blue colour.
And what I’ve made with it so far:
I’ve managed a few rows of my Blooming shawl (which still defies being photographed correctly; in some lights it’s blue, in others purple) and a couple of motifs in the Corelli CAL. I have two more completed washcloths.
Both made in Peaches and Cream yarn.
The cold is progressing and I’m now at the hacking dry-cough stage. Of course, this is really nothing in comparison to what happened in Japan so I’m trying not to complain to much.
