In Which a Handmade Cardigan is Completed
Lady Scientist S gave me a gift certificate for my birthday which I spent on some lovely yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy in lilac.I'd been wanting to make myself milobo's Chevron Lace Cardigan, and thought this might be a perfect match. The pattern is beautiful, but I'm not happy with my armholes or the neckline. The hemp/cotton blend yarn may not have enough give for the pattern. But the color is lovely, and the yarn is soft although a little splitty. Here are some photos, with apologies for the dusty mirror. I look in the mirror about once amonth, so never noticed it needed cleaning.
