Pattern: Lamb's Lace Cardi
Designer: Christina Wall
Yarn: Berroco Vintage
Color: Juniper
Needles: US7 and US5
Ravelry Link

I loved working with the Berroco Vintage. It is a nice soft yarn, and the Juniper color has little specks of lavender and pinks on a navy background. The pattern was well written, quick and easy to follow. It is a great sweater for fall, because you can wear it with a long sleeve shirt on a cool day, or a camisole on a warm day.

Thank you for all your nice comments on my last post. I really couldn't believe anyone was still paying attention.

Ruffle My Feathers

I could start this post out by telling you why I haven't been around here for so long, but the story is really very boring and so long that even I have trouble following it. Suffice it to say that I've been very busy.

I have recently found my knitting needles and yarn stash, and I can tell you it feels really good to be knitting again. I have a renewed passion for all things wool now that the hottest summer on record is coming to an end.

Oh yeah... my old photographer (the one that I fired) up and went off to college... just like that.
