I have nicknamed this project my Never Ending Sweater. I tore it out so many times, I lost count! In case you were thinking everything we do turns out perfect, not so! I am so glad I persevered and got it finished. It is super cute! I know it is going to be much worn. I don't really have a lot of details to share with you, as it has been in the making a long time! I wasn't sure about the gauge at first, but once I went down two sizes in needles, I was much more happy with the feel of it. So, in trying to get the right needle size I cast on the sleeve and knit it like 3 or 4 times. Then there was a few more rip outs as the first time I tried it on (when it was completed) the arms pinched! I ripped it out to the sleeves again and knit two more inches between the shoulders. And of course I made a mistake the next time I knit it up (and didn't find out until it was finished), so out it came again! It is a good thing yarn is so resilient!
The pattern is the Whisper Cardigan by Hannah Fettig. She is one of my favorite designers because her sweaters are so classic. The yarn is a Merino/Cashmere/Nylon lace weight from Sun Valley Fibers. I fell in love with the yarn at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival a couple of years ago. Not only is it a luscious color, it is super super soft! It is the most luxurious sweater in my wardrobe now!!
