Shalom ( Cardigan)

>> Thursday, January 13, 2011




Picture taken by Nicolas 10 yo

I was finally able to get a sweet ds to take my picture of my new FO ( finished object) my Shalom Cardigan ( the pattern is HERE but I used THIS alterations to it.) . *GRIN* I love my new cardi so much. The wool I picked is so soft and a joy to wear. I have some green cotton yarn to make a different sweater( that is a bit complicated for my full brain) but I am now thinking maybe a Shalom II might be a choice. [o= One thing I would do different is make the sleeves a bit longer. Just long enough to go over my elbows and I want to try using the moss stitch instead of the garter stitch for the edges and cuffs. I just love the 3/4 length sleeves. I have some other FO's I want to share and I need to take some time this week or next to get some pictures of them for you.

It's beautiful!

So sorry to MIA for so long. I am doing well. I've tried twice now to keep a blog and failed both times, no matter how badly I want to be a blogger, ugh! I really do miss my dear blog friends.

Anyway, I do have a blogger account, so I'll add you to the ones I follow. Maybe I'll try again.

Blessings!

Super job! You knitters constantly amaze me! Can't wait to see what else you've finished. Just let me know when you want to chat. Tuesdays through Thursday are quieter days for me.

Lovely! Looks like something maybe even I could do. :-)

Also wanted to stop by and say hi...I'm from your SSIC group at HSB but now residing here on Blogger! Glad I can keep up with your interesting and beautifully done blog. I'm looking forward to following you easily again.

Blessings!

It looks beautiful, Mary! I love 3/4 length sleeves, too...maybe I'll try to make one of those! I have a store-bought cardigan, but it's almost like a cotton one, a cotton-knit. I would love to have a bulkier-yarn one.

btw, a F.O. would always make a great FFG post! ;-D

Love you, SSiC!
{{{HUGS}}} and Blessings,

Fantastic!!!! It looks so snuggly and warm and is as beautiful as the woman it graces - well done, sweetie!!!! I am so glad that you love it - I would too!!!!

The photos of your mountain in winter are absolutely gorgeous; I'll bet it is so incredibly peaceful of an evening in full snow, isn't it? I miss that about my childhood so much sometimes. :)

Have a lovely rest-of weekend!!!
love,
Shani
