Half a Sweater-ish

I’m making progress on my Blue Sand Cardigan!  Yay!  I even got brave and tried it on and I was soooo happy with the fit!  The designer is a genius!  I love the way the shoulder shaping hugs my shoulders–I think this cardi will stay in place without shifting around all the time–which is so exciting!

I’ve been able to read a little more in Letters from Honeyhill: A Woman’s View of Homesteading.  The sections I read this week were about Christmas time, and the author’s first anniversary–so sweet!  It’s such an enjoyable book!

Announcements:

  1. Your cardigan looks wonderful. You chose some great colors. My entire year is going to be about busting some stash. I really need to get a grip on my yarn. So far, so good!

  2. I love the colors in the sweater! So pretty! Last year I forced myself to knit only from my stash – I had a lot. Of course by the time Christmas knitting came around I was sorely lacking in material, and required a trip to the yarn store, but I am pretty pleased with the amount of stuff I was able to do with what I had in my stash. And now I get to build it back up again 🙂
