First "big" project


Carolyn is finally in one piece! Perfect timing too, the snowy cold days left this past weekend, so I've been wearing this cardigan outside non-stop.

I must admit, I just want to make more sweaters and shirts, but I really have my eye on making an Intolerable Cruelty skirt next, possibly in black, or a deep burgundy/red...

So fun!

it looks awesome! and I loove the colours you used aswell! I was actually thinking of using that pattern as my first cardigan/sweater knit aswell.. is it easy enough for a first time garment knit?

Thanks everyone!

Petra - It was pretty easy to knit up, I managed it as my first garment. The only issues I ran into were on the sleeve caps.. an extra stripe was called for, and I had no idea how to match it up with the body, so I left it out! Worked out perfectly. I still haven't gotten a response back from the designer, so I don't know if it was intended or not. Oh, this was in medium size, not sure if this was the case for each size or not.

Well as long as you like how it looks and it fits then that's all that matters right=) I can't wait to start this I've been wanting to knit a cardigan for ages now!
