I am a cup, constantly and quietly being filled.
I have spent most of the first quarter of the year filling up my creative well. So far, I’ve knitted a dozen each of sweaters and cowls, a few shawls, mittens, legwarmers, and hats;
caught up with old friends,
gone for some hikes,
listened to new performances,
and gazed for hours at the many wonders of spring.
My bucket feels full. It’s time…I hope I’m ready to open the floodgates again.
Here is my composition of a cable cardigan Hello Winter, designed by Connie Peng (aka yellowcosmo)
The collars may be buttoned up and folded over as turtleneck,
or unbuttoned as open collars.
Body’s work in one piece from bottom up. Sleeves were knitted in round, two-at-a-time, cleverly joined to the body at underarm, and continued raglan shaping to neckline.
I thoroughly enjoyed test-knitting Connie’s design in Patons Classic Wool (worn denim colorway.)
It’s well written–both chart and written instruction–and fun. This is a cardigan that I would make another one some day. Have you loved a design so much that you’ve knitted it twice? If so, what was it?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
