Completed Audrey Cardigan

Audrey in Unst by Gudrun Johnston was a very enjoyable pattern to knit, and this yarn was lovely to work with and has a wonderful drape. It was a bit of a rush to try to complete it before my vacation but managed to get it done with a few hours to spare. I would make this pattern again, but next time, I’d make it longer.

Audry in Unst Cardigan – in progress

It’s been a busy summer and I’ve really been enjoying working on this cardigan in between things. I hope to get it done before my autumn vacation. As many people on Ravelry have commented, it’s a well-written pattern that is easy and fun to follow. I’m impressed with how quickly it’s knitting up. The yarn that I’m using is delicious. It’s called Mosco by Schulana and it’s a rayon/mohair mix that’s actually super-soft.

Floral Cardigan – in progress

I can’t wait to finish this so I can wear it! The pattern is from the Winter 1009/10 issue of Vogue Knitting and is by Josh Bennett. Since I have allergies to regular wool, I ordered some Merino from KnitPicks and I’ve chosen colors that I would wear more often. I’ve chosen to do the top portion as Fair Isle, but I am using intarsia for the centers of the flowers.

Winter Wonderland Coat

I finally finished knitting my first sweater. While I love the idea of it, I’m really unhappy with how the collar lies. Perhaps in the future, I will find the time and motivation to make something up and change it. Also, it makes me look like a wide load when I really am not. Mental note: don’t wear it buttoned up.
