You may have noticed that my last post was titled In Which Things *Begin* to Get out of Hand. Here's the rest of the story.
Every summer... well every summer since I started knitting which would be about 3 or 4, I get a craving for the perfect white summer cardigan. This craving leads to endless hours spent searching the internet and LYS catalogs for the perfect knit... nothing too fancy, but not too plain either, lightweight, durable, and, most important, relatively quick without being bulky.
I've found patterns and yarn in the past (which I won't link to, but exist in my blog somewhere) but nothing was ever quite right.
Well finally... I've found it! "Martha" from Rowan 37. Perfect!
A whole cardigan knit with 4ply cotton on size 2 needles. Just what I had in mind!
(BTW Maria - There's a beaded version of this sweater too just in case you want the pattern when I'm done. I know how you love those beads!)
So I couldn't wait to get started, but somehow, in between swatching (yes I did swatch!)and casting on, this got going on my needles.
More Noro Matsuri for Carlotta. I so love this yarn!
