It’s Been a Long Winter

It’s been a long winter… well, not on the west coast.  Winter was over before it even began here in the Pacific Northwest.  I finished knitting this Rosemont Cardigan at the beginning of November, right before a short trip to Tofino.

Rosemont

Here I am on Chesterman’s Beach enjoying a warm sunny afternoon in Tofino.  I’ve wrapped myself up in the sweater all winter and its starting to show some wear, but I love it more and more.  I had some issues following the pattern at the beginning, but I believe it has since been re-released with some improved instructions.  I used Knit Picks Full Circle worsted yarn that I had in my stash.  It is incredibly soft, but if you are adverse to pilling, you might want to choose another yarn.

I spent my creative time this winter more with my knitting needles than at my sewing machine.  Man am I a slow knitter.  I am just now finishing up the second sleeve on my next sweater.  Hope to have more to show you soon.
