The blog may have been silent the last week or so (holiday busy-ness), but my knitting needles haven't! Remember how I started a new sweater the night before we left for Kentucky last week? It's done.
I love it. Luuuuurve it.
Pattern: Tall Flower Cardi (that's a Ravelry link) by Cecily Glowik MacDonald. She's a regular designer for Classic Elite Yarns, but this pattern is published independently. I found it while poking around on Ravelry. (A person can spend a lot of money that way...)
Yarn: Berocco Peruvia Quick, about 6.5 skeins. It is soft, lovely wool, and I love the dark heathery red/burgundy color.
Mods: The top of the buttonhole band has a funny tab across the neckline to make the cardi asymmetrical, but I left it plain. Otherwise, I had no modifications other than yarn substitution. The designer calls for a worsted weight yarn doubled, but I had this yarn already and it was just right.
Not a bad way to finish up the ought-oughts, don't you think?
