Off the needles and onto the blocking towel, with nary a leftover in sight!
I really squeaked by on this one – I could’ve sworn I had 7 skeins of yarn, but of course I could only find 6. I shortened the sleeves to 3/4, and had to rip about half of my swatch to finish the second one, but I’m done!
The yarn is Sliver Moon Farm superwash merino worsted, which I bought at my very first Rhinebeck, 6 years ago. I don’t know what the colourway is, but maybe Kay can enlighten us! I don’t think they sell their yarn online, but if you’re going to Rhinebeck this weekend I’m sure they’ll be there!
The design for this is a simple top-down cardigan, with an elongated garter stitch pattern to the waist, then stockinette with front and back shaping darts to the hip. I’m really happy with the fit, and I can’t wait to wear it! (Proper FO photos and probably a pattern to come.)
And my second Rhinebeck sweater?
Maaaaaaybe. It has to be done tonight to have a good wet blocking and be dry by Friday. We’ll see!
