Like my fellow knitters at knit group, I walked past the bags of queued yarn in my stash and went instead for the latest acquisition. This lovely yarn picked up at our Stash Swap.
Briggs & Little Tuffy work socks.
It was always my understanding that she didnt' knit. Or at least didn't knit much. But come our Stash Swap, Barbara sent in a lot of unwanted yarn. I snatched this gorgeous lot. About 15 balls altogether.
Since the yarn is glorious in itself, I felt the pattern needed no further lace or stitch enhancements. With that in mind, I selected a free ravelry pattern for a basic, top-down, raglan-sleeved summer cardi with a border of two rows of attached I Cord.
With this much complete after a day of knitting, this little summer piece will most likely be finished before the weather makes it wearable.
Although, I could be wrong. Look what has sprouted in my garden.
