pattern: Flaming June by Cheryl Niamath
yarn: Cascade Heritage Silk, colour Charcoal, about 2.6 skeins
Grey looks great on most people I know, it's classy and not so pushy, but still really versatile and fresh. I'm going to do teacher's practice this autumn so I decided to knit a cardigan I can use with skirts and trousers, in a colour that would go together with pink and rose and green. So grey it was. Cascade Heritage Silk is even lovelier than it's sock sibling Heritage,I cross my fingers that it's somewhat close to Heritage's durability.
I'm just really chuffed about this cardigan, even though it didn't turn out the way it probably would have in hemp. Because wool is so much more elastic than hemp, the side wings look a bit titty-ish, but hey, it wouldn't be my piece of clothing, if something wasn't a bit craggy and erratic. Definately will be one of my favourite things to wear!
The side tit- I mean wing.
Mitred decreases in sleeves. At first I wasn't going to do them as I was going to wing the sleeves anyways, but they looked so nice in the end that I kept doing the decs.
