As promised, many pics of the finished Joy cardigan and new projects (just two).
Pattern: Joy, by Kim Hargreaves, Rowan’s Vintage Knits
Yarn: Knit Picks Gloss, in Sahara, six skeins
Needles: US1 (cuffs), US2 (collar and CO), US3 (body and sleeves)
Size: 34″ bust
Notes: I didn’t change the pattern except for not using the beads. I do think the cuffs would be better off knit with the US2 needles, but it’s fine. I love it, have gotten many compliments, I just need to get those buttons on.
As for new projects, I’ve started the Hemlock Ring Blanketfrom Brooklyn Tweed’s blog…
The other project is my BIL’s x-mas present, the Boyfriend Socksfrom SlippedStitch’s blog. I’ve deemed them the Brother-In-Law Socks because, otherwise, it just doesn’t sound right…
Tippy seems to like them, my Mr. Fluffy Pants! Who is shedding like a horror at the moment and actually, very nearly, burned up the motor on my vacuum cleaner.
