Life has been so incredibly full lately - I'm finding it a little hard at the end of the day to find inspiration for a blog post, so I'm going to do a few posts on previous knitting projects. Starting with this one ;) Because that was the first one I tracked down in my photos ;) Easy is top priority right now ;)
This is Little Miss A wearing the "Jasmine Lace Edge Cardigan" found in Louisa Hardings book, "Natural Knits for Babies and Moms"
This sweet cardigan was my first attempt at lace. I was really pleased with how it turned out.
I used O-Wool Balance which is 50% cotton and 50% merino wool. I really really like O-wool - both the balance and the Classic are so lovely to work with.
I started this sweater when Little Miss A was a baby and it took me almost a full year to complete. I was fairly new to knitting when I started and it seemed sooooo hard! Then when I came back to it after ignoring it for several months (yes I do that often ;) ) I had more experience knitting and all of a sudden it wasn't hard - I didn't take long to finish it after that.
I made a Pilot hat to match - that'll be another post coming up tho, as I've made several from that pattern.
I think tho that my favorite part is the buttons - Mr. K helped me pick them out :) They really make the sweater I think :)
