24 Jun Off the Needles || Twenty Ten Cardigan
It feels good to be finishing up some projects again! Things have been a little hectic around here, and I have a couple of projects going that still need to be shared. This is one that I finished a few months ago and just recently sewed the buttons onto. It may finally be worn instead of draping over my studio chair looking pretty! The pattern is Twenty Ten Cardigan by Veera Valimaki, knitted in Knit Picks Billow yarn in the Turmeric colorway. The finished garment turned out a little large, but I expected it to be a little oversized since the gauge of the yarn I used was slightly larger than that of the yarn the pattern called for. By the way, everything I said in my previous post about Billow– I still mean it. This cardigan is so soft, and the moss stitch pattern has beautiful definition. I would love to use it again for a different project, especially with all of the gorgeous colors available.
Lastly, I feel like I just need to say something about this wall. Wow! Part of me felt like I was standing beside Frida Kahlo’s La Casa Azul (or at least I was wishing it was), and the other part was feeling nostalgic for sidewalk chalk from back in the day. I’ve been eyeing this building for a while, wanting to get FO photos there and the contrast with the turmeric shade was just right.
That’s the final pattern from my Veera Valimaki project rule of threes! Which designer should I move on to next?
