This is the Whisper Cardigan in the Spring issue of Interweave Knits
I had a bit of trouble with knitting the sleeves in the round, first of all I don't do 4 needles and using a 12 inch circular needle really stretched the knitting too much for my liking, so I opted for my favourite method of the magic loop. I found that my addi lace circulars were too sticky at the joints for this fine 2ply laceweight yarn so I changed to my absolute favourites needles, harmonies and I was off! I found that if I held the cord and the needle together the stitches slipped over the join more easily, I soon got into a rhythm. I did get a slight problem with laddering but not enough to spoil my experience. I delightful knit all in all and I feel sad that I have finished it. I made the body 10 inches long instead of 8 inches that the pattern says. A bit more flattring for me I reckon.
I used about 95g of yarn for the whole cardigan, a real bargain for something so wearable!
Thank you to my photographer for taking these lovely photos! I think you need to update your blog honey...
The yarn is the same base yarn that Dee at Posh Yarn used for her Diana yarn, so I feel well and truly posh in it! Shame it's too warm to wear it at the moment ha ha, no doubt that will change soon.
I hope to be having a Summer Affair with this soon...but Spinning for Tour de Fleece is going to be using up my time for a while, and it will good to use up some of my ever growing fibre stash!
