St. Patricks Day 365....

Garnet was finished early Saturday morning. I absolutely looooove this sweater. Sorry for the crappy picture (it's really foggy out and just couldn't get a good picture this morning. I'll try to get a better one later today)UPDATE: Got a new picture when the sun came out. I'll have project info tomorrow.
I'll be getting a lot of wear out of this this summer.

Also still plugging away on Obsession Spring Forward.
I'll have that half of the front done today. I think I can easily have this baby done by the end of the week.

This is a good thing for lot's of reasons. Not only is it a beautiful sweater, it's really comfy. The yarn is soft it's going to fit well. It's also not green. Every single cardigan in my closet is green:
Including a purchased lightweight cardigan. The only other cardigan in my closet is blue, but it's the original Cropped Cardigan that is way too large for me now. Looking at my stash and UFO's, I have a very specific color preferences.

Well, today is laundry day and that makes good knittin' time. It's going to be beautiful today, hitting the upper 70's. I'll open up windows and air out the winter/dog smell in the house, so some laundry and enjoy a little spring preview before it goes back to normal temps later this week.

Have a great Monday and Happy Knitting!!!

  2. Thanks Sonya! That top sweater is the Cropped Cardigan Redux done in Elann's alpaca yarn. The pattern is a Paton's pattern book "Paton's Canadian Living Collection". I don't think I've put it in my gallery yet. I guess I need to update :D
