Lacy Wrap Cardigan

This was so much fun to knit! Not sure if the belt that comes with it is necessary. A simple brooch or none at all is probably sufficient. What do you think?


From the Berroco pattern "Licious".





Minty Raglan Cardigan

Finally finished the mohair/wool raglan cardigan modified with an eyelet raglan edge and decreasing at the cuffs. Notice the shell buttons which reflect gorgeous colors


Very warm and comfortable


This wonderful yarn was scored at a local garage sale last summer


while out shopping with my auntie Ruth who spotted the sign.

I have a lot of it, it is up in the air what to do with the remaining two skeins.. scarf, hat, socks.. what do you think?


Based off of this pattern:

Angelina Vintage Jacket

I do not recommend this pattern. I barely had enough yarn to finish it (purchased along with pattern), and had to shorten the sleeves considerably so as not to run out. There are other adaptations of vintage bed jackets out there which are probably much better written. That being said, I think this was begun about 3 years ago, and finished a few weeks ago. I do enjoy wearing it mainly due to the fact that I was able to somehow adapt to several design element flaws such as the stair step effect for sleeve shaping - BAD idea. View image In the end, I seamed the sides and sleeves together grafting style with the only seam allowances being those little pesky corners from the steps.


It is warm and cozy, and the subtle variegation in the pink is very pretty.


And vintagey!
