Vintage Diamonds Cardigan p

I have finally published my Vintage Diamonds Cardigan pattern. You can purchase it on Ravelry or on my website for $7.

The grey one is the first one I knit, of course. Just to refresh your memory, it is the medium size, about 18 months. I used 600 yards of Classic Merino Superwash Sock yarn in Graphite.

The red one is the smallest size which is about 6 months. I used about 400 yards of Classic Merino Bamboo yarn in Crimson. As you can see I opted to leave off the embroidery for this one. I like it both ways so it seemed like a nice idea to have each option visually available in the blog.

I will have these on display this weekend at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival. I am leaving on Wednesday for the show. I hope to get some more progress on my shawl during down time.

It’s Seaming Time

After two festivals in a row and only two days at home between them, I’m glad to be home for a bit. I was busy with knitting as often as I could manage, so I completed all the pieces for the small size Vintage Diamonds Cardigan.

Here they are being blocked yesterday morning. It’s time to get it seamed so I can knit the collar.

I got to work on that last night. I got the shoulders seamed and the sleeves set in. It was reading time when I got to that point so I’ll be doing the side seams tonight. Hopefully that can be done in just one more evening.

The other ball of yarn sitting there in the background is what I wound yesterday to motivate me to get the seaming finished. It’s for my next project. I’m in the mood for something lacy. More on that next time. 😉
