I am doing the FO dance of joy! I finished my Top-Down Raglan Cardi tonight and she is blocking as I type. The only thing she is missing are buttons. Since I am not leaving for Rhinebeck until tomorow afternoon between 1p and 2pm (Miss Shameka? Are you reading that?), I will head over to the little fabric/notion store in my neighborhood after my morning run to pick some up. I will be wearing this cardi this weekend!
Pattern: Top-Down Raglan Cardigan, Cosmicplutoknits.com
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay (1.5 hanks); Patons Classic Wool (2.25 skeins)
Needles: Knit Picks Options Size 9
Started: September 28th
Finished: October 16th
Mods: Knitted the body longer than called for in the pattern (just including more waist shaping increases); Started the contrasting yarn on sleeves immediately when picking back up sleeve stitches (I wanted a nice even black dividing line going across the body)
Would I knit this again? Absofreakinglutely! This was also a half stashbuster sweater. The Manos has been hidden in my stash for a few years.
I am off to Rhinbeck this weekend and I am so excited. This is my first festival ever and, while my sister will no longer be there to experience it with me this year, I plan on having enough fun for the two of us!
Hey MB, guess what came in the mail today? :-)
