I even talked with a couple of interested woman about knitting which was really nice. Sometimes people kept starring, which is especially annoying when the person in front of you turns around on her seat the whole time and watches you through the gap between the seats. Have you ever made something on public transport? How did people react?
|I only realised when looking at these photos that there is button peaking out from the center of the keyhole, haha.|
Pattern: Myrna by Andi Satterlund. In contrast to Andis pattern my cardi has long sleeves. That's because I'm always so cold and my three quarter or short sleeved cardigans don't get worn in winter.
Wool: I had three skeins of Cascade Yarns Cascade 220 in lilac mist which I bought for half price when sadly the online retailer closed down. Because I had only three skeins, I was a bit limited for the length of the sleeves. I would have liked them to be 2" longer but had no wool left.
Construction: I think it took me about 1.5 month to finish this cardigan. I could have been faster but it took me a while to figure out how to knit the long sleeves.
|I knitted too many buttonholes - 6 instead of 5 - by mistake. I was knitting in people carrier |
with 5 lovely ladies and just got carried away ;)
Have I worn it? Several times although I'm not so sure the color suits me well. Saying that I have a color consultation in April, which hopefully will shed light on the colors that suit me best! I'm a bit scared that my favorite colors don't suit me!
|You might remember my Megan Dress from last week. Here you can see that it is too short |
and my slip is displayed because I'm lifting my arm.
