It feels like so long since I last made one of these posts, almost to the point that you probably think I haven't been knitting anything other than fungi and heart motif hats, eh? Well, that's not exactly the case. I did finish another lingering project recently that I have yet to get photos of, and the rest of my time has been spent on this fingering weight beauty... Hannah Fettig's Walpole. I've sung of my love for the Knitbot patterns before, and this time is no different. My only complaint is how slow going the piece is because of the tiny gauge. BUT, it's oh so soft, and the yarn looks gorgeous and I can already tell that this is another sweater I am going to love to wear.
My yarn choice for Walpole is Knit Picks Capretta, an utterly luscious merino yarn with a hint of cashmere... the first time I've made something for myself with a remotely fancy fiber such as cashmere. I know it's only 10%, but I don't care! It's SO soft! Did I mention that? SOFT. I can't wait to finish this cardigan. I just completed the waist decreases this week, so I'm hoping to get to some sleeves in the near future. Have you tried out any Hannah Fettig patterns? Which one is your favorite?
