as you already know, my KAL is finished. yes. i'm a crazed knitter.... obsessive really, no big deal. ;) wanna see?
before i go all lovey-crazy-smothery-you know what i mean...... here are the details of the sweater
pattern: caramel by isabell kraemer
yarn: sirdar country style dk.
first off. this is a wonderful sweater, and a very straightforward pattern. it was so very easy to follow, and made for extremely relaxing knitting! so thank you isabell! you rock!
the sweater is knit from the top down, and the only seaming is in the underarms. my kind of knitting!
the sleeve shaping was a little different than what i had knit before, and i rather like the effect!
i love the simplicity of the cardi, and the detail is just enough. i am a sucker for stripes, so i was called to this pattern already, but the solid colour just below the elbow? love.
you like it too, don't you?
the drape is great, it's comfortable, it's warm, it's perfect!
i honestly had no issues with this pattern. it was a joy to knit, very easy to understand. bonus... i want to wear it always!
oh.my... i really love this sweater! i bet you do too... it's sooo soft, and just as the pattern says, it's a blanket style cardi. it's a squishy love hug.
a ridiculously huge thank-you to shannon for taking these pics! you are ah-mazing! not only did she make me look gorge in my frumpy mama hair, while i was battling a cold, but she did it with a sleeping babe snuggled into her! seriously! luckily the older kiddlets were easily distracted with hot chocolate and marshmallows. (yeah... it's been that kind of summer here)
