very quickly . . .

Posted on: January 19, 2008

. . . here I am in my new cardigan that I finished this afternoon! It is not too bad – I think I will actually wear this one. 

Free pattern here. 

Sorry the photo is a bit blurry – Purl took it quickly as she was getting ready for work and now she is gone and I don’t have anyone to take another photo!

Now, I knitted this out of Zhivago which is a lovely soft tencel something blend. It is the same yarn I used for my Clapotis. However, the Clapotis yarn was a different colour and a completely different texture. This batch was kind of squished flat and a bit fluffy and splitty.


I am not sure which one was the ‘real’ Zhivago. Anyway, I am glad to have that finished so I can concentrate on the Central Park Hoodie, which is about 9 inches high at the moment.

Thank you all for wishing me a happy me day. I had a great time knitting and catching up on computery things. The Spunk cleaned out the smallest kids’ room which  was not an easy feat, let me tell you. They are back now and the house looks like a bomb has hit it. Two bombs perhaps, who are now arguing over PS2. Better go intervene!

Oh you look very swish in your new cardi!! I agree, there are two types of Zhivago: the variegated seems very different from the plain colours. I can tell you are very happy tostart your CPH: you’ll be ready for Autumn!!!

Oh nice! I love a good cardi, and that’s certainly a good one. it sits well on you.

I like the cardi (what’s the pattern?) it hangs really well and looks great! Have fun on the CPH – I expect regular updates!

Cute cardi!! I am loving brown, it’s one of my new fav colors. Fits you perfect. What’s the pattern?

I agree it sit’s very well on you 🙂

Not too bad??? It looks lovely and yes, I’m guessing you will get heaps of wear out of this little beauty.

That’s gorgeous!!! Well done for finishing it just in time for a cooler day too. 😉

It looks a lovely, useful cardigan. Nice fit and drape.

Cardigan looks GREAT!!

Yes I have noticed Zivargo is all over the place with their texture. I have notice big difference between the plain and variegated really.

Hasnt the weather been lovely?

Your sweater looks terrific on you! Now, if only it came in “fuller” sizes (sigh). And your CPH looks wonderful, too 🙂 It must be nice to have some warm weather…we are FREEZING here! Soak up some rays for me. Hannah
