FO- Bulky Mini Cardi
Friday night Jen and I were at The Purple Purl to help Glenna celebrate the completion of her Ph.D. And we knitted.... and knitted.... and I finally got some FO shots of the mini bulky cardigan, thanks to Jen. Pattern: Mini Bulky Cardigan Size: small, but an altered small- the small is a 38 bust, and I'm a 32. I came in under gauge, and followed pattern as normal. Yarn: Marisol Sulka, 4 skeins, colourway is black pepper Needle Sizes:9mm, 6.5 mm, 5 mm Mods: None, except that I didn't do the contrasting colour trim. Which I think is pretty obvious. Notes: I LOVE THIS YARN. I swear I'm a martini away from running off to Las Vegas and marrying it in an Elvis chapel. Here's a shot of the back, I love the decreases. Stephanie Japel is brilliant. And then the neckline. I really like the garter trim. I'm a bit late on Self Portrait Sunday, but I was a bit under the weather: As honest as it gets, really. I'm in bed, in a bathrobe. I forgot about the chicken pox scar on my forehead. I've had it since I was three years old, but it's been ages since I noticed it. And why yes, I do display my handbags as wall art. They are too pretty to be chucked in a drawer.
