Don’t you just love that title of my post. In the event you do not know who Karen is, she is the lovely, and truly inspiring, blogger of Pumpkin Sunrise. Karen is currently working her fourth Featherweight Cardigan , which made me think I really should try this pattern, especially since many of knitting friends have made one. A bit of trivia, over 7,400 Featherweight cardigans have been made, and that’s just the ones that are showing on Ravelry. Check out my knitting friends who have made this cardigan, a few of them like Karen have made more than one!
For some reason I have found myself sitting on the sidelines watching all these lovely cardigans being made and I think it’s largely due to my fear of using lace weight or fingering weight for a project. Well knitters, yesterday I decided to take the plunge and buy the pattern. I have the perfect yarn in my stash, Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace in two colors. I plan to do a striped Featherweight, which I think will be lovely. Mind you I am still a bit “terrified” of knitting with lace weight, but I’ve decided to get over my fear and cast on!!!
My Acer is coming along nicely and today while hubby is taking care of car repairs, I’m hoping to get a lot of knitting done and be able to at least separate the sleeves.
What are you working on this weekend ?
Do you have a favorite sweater/cardigan pattern that you enjoy knitting more than once?
