I got started on the Whisper Cardigan about 2 weeks ago, but then I shifted gears in order to finish the Killer Bunny (below) before Easter. Now that Little Bunny Kill-Kill is done, I am full-force Whisper Cardigan. I'm using Tosh Lace in Nebula and I've never worked with lace weight yarn before so it took a little getting used to. AND, I'm using lace weight with US7 needles, so the fabric produced is quite airy and drapey. I think it's going to be great, but delicate. I guess that's why they named it "whisper."
I'm reading Fiction Ruined my Family by Jeanne Darst. My husband and I heard Jeanne read a story on This American Life and I thought she was HILARIOUS. So my hubby surprised me with this book.
Here's the Killer Bunny. (Free pattern off Ravelry.) That went pretty well. I did choose my yarn based on fluffiness and not weight and that's how I ended up using a chunky weight yarn on US5 needles. (Oops.) But it made a nice dense fabric, perfect for murder!!! My son is a big fan of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, so I think he's going to be psyched! My notes are here.
Happy Knitting everyone!
(I just wanted to add: To the lovely knitters at Yarn Along who come and leave a comment, I always try to leave a comment back on your blogs, but for some funky computer reason that I cannot explain, when I hit the PUBLISH button, my comment just disappears into the ether. Are you getting it? I'll never know. But I do look at your lovely projects and try to leave some positive feedback behind. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. Thank you so much for the lovely comments you leave here. I truly appreciate it.))
