I bet you thought I wasn't a knitter anymore. It seems like forever since I last posted a project. So here is:
the Abby cardi
All important details can be found over at Ravelry.
I love this Quince yarn. It's soft and lightweight. It is their sock yarn so just imagine how long it took to knit this little number up.
I will wear this sweater a lot this coming fall. It's perfect for that slight chill in the air kind of day.
However, if I were to do it again I would make a size up or maybe two. For once this pattern was true to size. A XS is really tiny (or maybe I've just grown and don't want to admit it) and would love to have it a bit more slouchy.
The arms are a bit tight too. A light tee is all that could be worn underneath.
The pattern was well written and easy to follow. I was worried I wasn't going to have enough yarn, so I made the arms 3/4 and probably could have knit the body a bit longer.
I also used the stockinette side whereas, the pattern called for reverse stockinette.
It sounds as if I don't like this sweater, but I really do. It will receive heavy rotation in the coming months as the cold settles in.
Now on to two baby sweaters...gift knitting is never ending!
