Sorry for the crappy photo, but the color is really pretty close, maybe a little less neon in appearance, more matte. The only thing this sweater is missing is a ribbon to tie it closed. It's quite a heavy yarn, Auracania Nature Cotton - 5 1/2 skeins, in burnt orange. The pattern is the Sunkist Cardi by Kirsten Kapur. The pattern is really easy and quick. I cast it on the needles on June 8 and I finished it last night on June 19.
The stashbusing continues - I am casting on the Eyelet Cardi next. Anyone else? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
The Spritely Yarns Peppercorn blend called for a less lacy stitch pattern, so here is the start using the Vertical Waffle pattern from More Sensational Knitted Socks. I am turning the heel on this sock this morning and then I am going to begin the seaming on the Bam Boo Mess.
Also? I am on Ravelry! Look for Guinifer and I will be your friend!
25 days remain in the Yarn Diet. I have my Loopy Ewe basket filled and waiting for July 16, is that wrong? I did receive my Socks that Rock Sock of the Month club today. This one is my favorite. I'll show and tell a little later.
Can't wait for Ravelry to be out of beta. Everything I hear/see has me soooo excited!
Love that Eyelet pattern, I've been looking at it on knitpixie for awhile now...
Anyhow, your sweater looks like it will be nice for cool evenings at the cabin.
Damn, now both you and Jeanne have cast on for the eyelet cardi. Maybe I should find my yarn and pattern...
