Just in time before it gets too warm to wear anything thick and woolly, that is! I finished my burnt red cadigan:Pattern: my own, started on Feb 2, finished on Feb 17
Yarn: Tahki Donegal Tweed
Needles: 4.5 mm circular Knitpicks
I very much like how it turned out, but the yarn wasn't the most pleasant to knit with. It was quite rough and non-elastic, so it was very hard on my fingers. Especially since I was only knitting this and nothing else for the last two weeks. But again, I like the end result, so I guess it was worth the pain.
This tweedy yarn is very light, it only took about 550 g to knit a medium size sweater, which is not very much at all! I had bought a full bag, which was 8 100 g skeins (not 10 as usual and as I thought it would be), and first I wasn't sure if it would be enough. Well, it was plenty, and now I have over 2 full skeins to figure out what to do with.
As far as I can remember, this was the first zipper I had put on a cardigan. It wasn't as diffucult as I thought, actually it was easier than most zippers, because you don't even have to fold the fabric under, so you can just sew over it once and you're done.
When I find the time, I will write the pattern out and publish it here.
Next is another sweater from a fine boucle yarn. I'll tell more about that when I have finalized my plans.
