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.
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!
