Yarn Along: Whisper Cardigan
I finally finished it! My Whisper Cardigan!
I started this sweater two months ago, and although I was working with US 7 needles (which is a good medium sized needle for those of you out of the knitting loop) the yarn was lace weight. OH - it took forever.
I hadn't even bothered jumping in on the weekly Yarn Along because how boring would it be to, week after week, come on and show mere inches of progress? Pretty darn boring!
But it's finished now - and I love it.
The Ravelry page is here.
I used a Hannah Fettig Pattern, Whisper Cardigan. And the yarn is Tosh Lace in color: Nebula.
I'm reading Chime by Franny Billingsley, which took me awhile to dig into, but I stuck with it and it's paying off in spades. It's a Young Adult book. Early 120th century. English swamp country. Witches and swamp creatures and hangings and all that. If that sounds like your kind of thing, go forth to the bookstore! However, if you cringed at witches - stay away! It's very witchy.
Magoo and I are reading The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies. This is a great read for third/fourth graders. It's about a brother and sister who've made a angry bet about who can make the most money at a lemonade stand. They even work math and business theory into it! We're both really enjoying it.
