Some of you know that I work for a company that operates within investment banks. Well we all know times are tough, and in my office it's really bad. For reasons I'm not going to discuss, but let's just say hours are being cut (have been for months) and today extra hour cuts took place. So when I was booted to the curb at 11:15am this morning, I took the opportunity to go pick up some yarn I needed for my latest knitting project.
Sunday I started the Top-Down Raglan Cardi by CosmicPluto Knits! From my stash bin, I pulled out the two cakes of Manos Del Uruguay that was hiding in there. I've had this yarn for a few years and was thrilled to have a project to use it.
I'd like to give you a wonderful sounding name for the color, but it is simply Color: S. How original! For the remainder of the body and sleeves I am using Paton's Classic Wool in black. I am loving how the black is making the purple pop.
My sister knitted this a few months ago so I am taking advice of what she did to ensure a great fit for myself. The one thing I am doing differently is that I decided to started the black higher up on the chest instead right below the bust. I figure this would be a better position for the line since I'm a busty gal and would flatter me better. I am also going to be knitting the body longer than what is recommended and curve it over my hips some.
I'm thinking it might be off the needles sometime over the weekend.
