Now that the holidays are safely behind us and gifts have been given we can round it all up here. This year almost everyone received hand knit gifts. I started all the way back in the summer so everything was finished on time this year (a Christmas miracle!)
First up is project that has been a long time coming, my featherweight cardigan. Started back in December of 2010,
A top down cardigan worked in lace weight yarn on size 4 needles this is some teeny tiny yarn. I quickly lost motivation after starting it. But I picked it back up this summer knowing that I wanted to finish it as a Christmas gift for my mom.
It became my constant companion and I was able to plow through it fairly quickly once I focused on it. I waited until right before Christmas to block it out and I was so pleased with how great it looked once it got a little bath.
I am very happy to report that it fits my mom like a dream. I'm waiting until it gets a little warmer to snap a few photos of her wearing it.
