Does my bum look big in this??

24 Feb 2006

Second finished knitted project for 2006.

Pattern: Aran Lace Cardigan from the elann website. Free.
Yarn: Filatura di Crosa Ramie/Wool blend. From stash, a secret pal gift from Celia. I used less than four balls for the whole cardigan.
Alterations made to the pattern:
I ignored the changing of the needles gradually instructions and knitted a single ball on 5mm and then went straight to 6mm circulars. I started the sleeves on a circular and found that I didn't know how to do two sleeves on two circulars and don't know the magic loop either, so I ditched them both for a set of humungous dpns (7mm) and did each sleeve separately on those.

Also, I wouldn't call this a pattern per se, it's more a set of guidelines really. Quick to knit, with a pleasing result, I'd do another one in an instant. Except I'm embroidering right now.

Can you tell I hate getting my photo taken? The stripey tiger kindly held the camera in her back yard to take the pics, and for that I am very grateful.
