Thank You, Finishing, and Starting

Thank you to everyone who gave me ideas for styling Unflattering Pink Cardigan. You mean, I should try it on over something other than my pajamas?! Who knew?

Yes, over a monochromatic arrangement of top and bottom, I like it much better. I've even worn it in public. I thought about taking a picture of it on, but after 3 tries, I'm giving up. It set me back a week in blogging. That's what kills me, getting the pictures.

Moving on, I have one more thing on my knitting list to finish up before I dive into the new fall projects. It's yet another textured cotton cardigan. (I will be the charter member of Cute-Cotton-Cardigan-Anonymous.) I started it after I finished Belle, because I just couldn't get enough of the Mission Falls Cotton.

It's the Bay Cardigan from the Mission Falls "Simple" pattern book. Mission Falls 1824 cotton in white. I've decided to make 3/4 sleeves and change the neckline from v-neck to crew neck so it is a little different than Belle. (Like, really, it's white. Isn't that enough of a difference already!?)

I have now had completely enough of the 1824 cotton, so have my hands, but I'm soldering on to finish this pup because I would love to wear it! Today!

Moving on.... I did cheat on my little plan and start one thing already. It's lace, so it's completely different. Waves in the Square shawl by Sivia Harding (of Diamond Fantasy Shawl fame.) I love the way this shawl is square in the back instead of pointy. Sophie's Toes yarn in Deep Rose. It's nice to settle into a project that I'm in love with again....

These blogs get me into so much trouble. I went and downloaded the Sylvia Harding pattern. The yarn is gorgeous too. It must be fun knitting with yarn that you custom colored. I love your unflattering cardigan too. Don't be so hard on yourself!

The Knitty ad is there! Is your email ringing off the hook?!

Way to go. And thanks for bringing some sock yarn to Guild.
