Finished Knitting: Dollar-and-a-Half Cardigan
I had hoped, among all our other activities this weekend, to get someone to photograph me wearing my new sweater. But we were too busy eating out, going to concerts, running, visiting the Art Gallery, and shopping, to do anything so useful-to-my-blog as camerawork. So here I was today, running back and forth between hitting the time-release button and standing at my designated spot and smiling. I did get at least one decent shot, which I offer to you here.
I think Ms. Dollar-and-a-Half photographs quite nicely on her own as well, don't you agree? She seems to like the lounge chair in the shade, a cardigan after my own heart. She's made of the wonderful silk-wool yarn by Garnstudio, Silke-Tweed. I experienced a number of frustrations knitting her, but it was all worthwhile. This is a cardigan that I know will get worn and worn and worn. It's a perfect weight, ideal for a cool summer evening, yet adequate as well for an extra layer in my office this winter.
