For me, with fall, comes routine and routine means knitting. The answer to "What's on your needles, Brenda? is this.
This is a top-down, summer cardigan. The pattern, Raddichio, is a ravelry freebie.
The yarn, I purchased in Baltimore this spring while at the Marylalnd Sheep & Wool Festival.
It is a cotton/wool combo
At the moment, with the lace yoke complete, it is a no-brainer of a knit. That works perfectly for a carry-along, or an in-between jobs kind of project. Right now, I am about 6 inches below the great divide of sleeves from body. I have inserted two rows of shaping so far and am headed for the waist.
There are a couple of unique features I have included in this sweater. Features, new-to-me until last Wednesday evening when I attended a trunk show where Deb Gemmell, introduced her latest book - Need A Circular Yoke?. Deb's technical genius was at work again when she wrote this book. New and improved bust shaping and a new-to-me way to short row are just two of the 'A-HA' items for me in Deb's new book.
Consider this a 'trailer'. I'll tell you all about those new techniques tomorrow.
