too teal

Not only did I finish a cardigan over the holidays, but I also cast on AND cast off an entire cardigan in one week.   I feel like this is becoming a bit of a tradition.   I knit an entire sweater for the Bumblebee in two days during Christmas 2010.   I amaze myself.   It is hard not to imagine what I could do if I didn’t have kids, a job, a mortgage, dishes, laundry . . . heck, any commitments!  I’d be a machine.

Pattern: Drops 113-17
Yarn, needles, modifications on Ravelry

PS.  You will notice that the lower half of the cardigan is much darker than the top half as well as the sleeves.  Every ball was a different dye lot.   I clearly can not resist wool that is deeply discounted, and there is always a reason that they are practically paying you to take the wool.  I foresee lots of lounging around at home in this cardigan, and it’s quite possible that it never gets to leave the house ever.   But it fits.  And it’s warm.

      Can you believe I still haven’t worn it? It’s kind of like sweatpants. It’s not really fit for leaving the house, but the design and knitting is perfect. It’s the dang dye lot disaster! 🙂 Go figure. That being said, I did wear ridiculously bright red sweatpants out on Sunday to visit my cousin, and we walked all around her posh neighbourhood, and I laughed and laughed. I plan on wearing them to work for Valentines Day. 🙂
