A long time coming

18 Sep

It took almost 7 months, but the bobble cardigan is finished!

I hope to have modeled photos tomorrow.   It’s super cute on – so much prettier than it looked in the magazine!  It also didn’t really take that much knitting time, once I started doing all the crosses without a cable needle.

I’ve decided that my next project is going to be the crochet cardigan below, available for free from Classic Elite.

I think it’s adorable.  I’m using Cascade 220 in the colors below.

From right the colors are: Kansas, Jet, Deep Sea, and Siena.  On the bottom you see a cat.  Except for siena they are all heathers.  Jet (the charcoal) will be the main color, and I’m trying to decide the order of the others.   The yellow will definitely be the middle row, so I just need to decide on the other two – do I want more brown or more teal?

I love how adorably cranky Sarah Jane is.  She was not amused when I kept taking photos on “her” bed.

    More teal than brown would be nice.

    The bobble cardigan looks impressively cute! I like the colors you have chosen for the next project, they seem to go well together. I vote more teal, as well. :)

    More teal for sure.

    The bobble cardigan is gorgeous.
    I’m going to jump on the bandwagon and say teal for the other sweater. :-)

    Do you have a link for the crochet cardigan? I looked, but couldn’t find. Your knitting is lovely.

    I love the bobble cardi! I don’t remember seeing a cardigan like that that I liked. Maybe it’s just because yours is so much cuter. :) I’ll have to look for it on ravelry.

    The bobble cardigan is hella cute, especially the color. I’d wear that one a lot. I just finished the Spring Beret by Natalie that I found in Ravelry. I used Malabrigo worsted in a turquoise color. I love the slouchy hat look that seems to be all over the place this season. Your knitting blog is one of my favorites because you are so prolific and focused. I love knitting!!

    You are so prolific, Jessica! The bobble cardigan looks great and I can’t wait to see modeled shots. And the crocheted cardi you have planned looks like so much fun. It’s nice to have a splash of color in the wardrobe sometimes. My palette is always a little bland ;)

    That sweater looks cozy! I love the yarn!

    What a great sweater! Lovely as always :)

    I personally would opt for more brown rows so that teal pops out more. That way you’d have the beige and teal pop out while the brown and gray serve more as a background. Well, I hope you were asking for suggestions .. heh.
