Down to the KnittyGritty

I added a few rows of garter stitch for a more finished neckline and hope to duplicate the cuff garter stitch detail on the bottom but as you can see that little ball of yarn on the side is all I have left. The yarn is Premier Merit 100% wool, I got it on sale at Hancock's for .69/skein. Now that the Transverse Cardigan is blocking...

I can get back to this, Simplicity 2508. There have been some awesome renditions of this jacket, starting with Opal's two years ago, can't believe it's been that long but she posted it on November 5, 2009, she's been silent for far too long, we miss you Opal.

Close up of the fabric, I'm not copying the fabulous EricaB who just finished an amazing herringbone jacket although that's never a bad ideal. I've had this fabric for at least two years and it's time has finally come. I recovered from a potentially disastrous cutting error, which I'll come clean about once it's finished.

I'm looking forward to seeing many wonderful creations over this long weekend.

Love the look of your cardigan. Around these parts (Chicago), this is a great time to have an "active" mojo. Lol
