Cardigans and Lace!

So now that we've gone through the introductions I say let's begin our first project together. This isn't my first knitted item, no, in fact I just finished a pair of Monkey Socks (Rav. Link) by Cookie A.

What do you think? Not too shabby for my first pair, if I may say so myself.

But after they were done, it was time to start on something I really love knitting, CARDIGANS! In my purse, wrapped in a plastic bag, I had this:


That's 2 delicious skeins of lace weight yarn by Yarn Treehouse in a gorgeous shade of blue

And in my Ravelry favorites, I had this pattern by Hannah Fettig for the Featherweight Cardigan so it seemed like a match made in heaven.

I went ahead and swatched and found that my US size 5 needles were going to be the best for the job. So I went ahead and cast on, and this is what I got:

Somewhat of a tangled mess with stitch markers that are too large for this project. I'm ripping out as we speak and will use scrap yarn as stitch markers and start all over again.

Wish me luck!


Hi All and Welcome,
I've always wanted to start a blog and now, I finally have. It may not be the fanciest, the prettiest, or even the most sophisticated of blogs, but it's all mine nonetheless. This is dedicated to a particular love of mine, knitting! So, I hope you'll all join me through my trials and tribulations of knitting item after item. I look forward to our journey!
Best Wishes,
