Finished Quick Sand

As part of the tops, tanks, and tees knit-a-long hosted by SoVeryShannon, I was determined to finally finish my Quick Sand Cardigan that I had started on my last vacation – Cabo San Lucas in December. As I’ve mentioned before my knitting was heavily stalled with the preparations for the cross-country move, and another project I’ve been working on as well.

Details:
– Pattern: Quicksand by Heidi Kirrmaier
– Yarn: Kestrel by Quince & Co. in Sand
– Needles: Size 9 US to get gauge

The pattern was easy to follow, and quickly became intuitive. The yarn was great to work with, the color is stunning in photographs and in person, and I can’t wait to wear this on hot summer nights in Charleston.

The weather here demands an adjustment in my knitting plans, so even though I love wool and will continue to design with it, I need to step up my game with knit accessories, and knits with non-animal fibers like cotton, linen, and bamboo. I’ve recently been scouring for great summer patterns, and I’m starting to put together a nice knit list. More on that this week!
