Hello from my new blogging centre.
It seems strange to say goodbye to my old blog, but at the same time it does make far more sense to be blogging from my own website. We'll see how it goes!
It's a wee bit exciting that my first post on my new blog site is about my latest adult design, Lizzie.
Lizzie is the grown up version of my girl's pattern, Elizabeth.
Lizzie is a great light-weight cardigan; lacy and airy and so light and beautiful to wear. She knits up quickly in a 5ply/sport weight yarn. I used the very lush Madelinetosh Pashmina for the sample in the photos. Oh my! This really is such a lovely yarn!
This cardigan is simple and seamless with an interesting construction. Cables, lace and fluttery sleeves make for both textural and visual delight.
The lace is a fairly simple 6 stitch pattern, but tips are included in the pattern for those who are inexperienced or lacking in confidence with lace. Both charts and written instructions are included for the lace sections.
I really enjoyed both the knitting and designing of this cardigan. Being an adult garment, it does take more time and effort than a child's but the lace kept it from getting too boring. I really love this lace pattern, it's quite textural while knitting but blocks out beautifully. It's a lace pattern that is also very easy to read and recall as you're knitting.
I've been wanting to knit this cardie for a long time; pretty much ever since I knitted the Elizabeth cardie. I'm so pleased I finally got around to it! It's such a comfy and wonderful cardie to wear.
Lizzie is now available for purchase via the Ravelry cart for $6.
