Happy 4th of July!
That’s a good start. What in the world have I been doing the past month plus? Well, it’s summer y’all! At least recently. Plus some secret gifty knitting. I have a FO and some WIPs, and finally, pictures :)
I knit a shawlette for my sis J’s birthday…and took the opportunity for FO pics during a visit to one of my favorite places, Descanso Gardens.
- Traveling Woman by Liz Abinante (Raveled)
- Capistrano Fiber Arts Merino/Silk in “Irish Moss”, 2 skeins, 300 yards
- US 8 needle
- Size small in the dk/sport pattern
For my niece, a Begbie cowl in Malabrigo “Sealing Wax”. Such a cool color!
And, in order for this site to keep its cred as The Cardigan Blog, progress on my Aryn Tunic Cardi in Classic Elite Lush.
I just have to knit the upper back and dolman sleeves, the rest of the neckband, and some finishing. The fabric is incredible, and also very, very warm. I should have this done just in time for the hottest weather of the year! Figures.
I’ll soon be starting two new cardigans, one for moi and one for my sis L. I hope everyone in Canada and the US is enjoying their national birthdays, and having a lovely long weekend!
