WIP: Long Tweed Cardigan
I haven't posted about knitting for a long time, but it's not because I haven't knit, just I've been working on a fairly big project with a fairly small amount of leisure time. (The picture above - me knitting during our stay in Asprovalta, Greece.) According to my Rav notes I started knitting my latest project - a long tweed cardigan on August 28th - more than two months ago.
The texture is rich, though simple, with enough lace for warmer weather and enough volume (more than 700 g) to keep me warm even on colder spring days. I made the sleeves full length and the cardi is as long as in the model picture - slightly above the knee. I'm still short and it is still rather long for my stature, but nevertheless I like myself in it.
This is the first time I tried this shape of squared armholes, I think it actually sits quite nicely.
A modeled photo session should be coming up soon :)
