A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

October 18, 2006


It's totally gray and dreary here today. I'm home alone so you'll have to settle for a shot in the bathroom mirror deal.

The colors from this photo are very accurate.

Pattern: Fair Isle Sweater from The Opinionated Knitter
Yarn: Cascade 220 in colors #8400, 9452, 9407, 8010, 2429, 9451.
Needles: US6 and 5 Addi Turbos, US6 Brittany DPNs
Changes: I used the waist shaping from Retro Prep (IK Fall 2002) and steeked the sweater to make a cardigan (although I failed to add extra stitches for the steek! Don't know where my brain was that day. I followed the instructions for the band from Meg Swansen's Cardigan Details video.
