FO Yummy Shawl Collar Cardigan

It fits for the pouring rain finally hit our dry garden. This is the Yummy Shawl Collar Cardigan, from Vouge Knitting or "Designer Knits" as the European version is called (which is stupid if you ask me!) - any how, very fashionable, very snug and comfortable cardigan. I am so pleased with (almost) everything. My added pockets, my elongated sleeves and body and the colour. What I am a bit upset about is that this wonderful yarn - Lorna's Laces is superwash. But the colour was unresistable - "Amy's Vintage Office" which was made for especially for Amy - the editor of Knitty. Knitty is a web-magazine - full of free patterns.


Otherwise it is the usual busy times here. Time is running out on thesis work... stressful... but I had to get an energy boost by sailing (where most of this was knitted). Ahh 19 C in the water and just wonderful...

That is truly a darling cardi ! This may be my first post on your blog, and I jsut want to introduce myself in case you wonder who it is. I'm Jen from California, and (formerly JenJay, and now...) "BluBonnet" on Ravelry, but you'll find all that out with a few clicks anyway.

Oh, I love the color! And the addition of the pockets was a fabulous idea.
I envy your sailing break! We had perfect weather for sailing here yesterday, nice breeze, mild temperature. But alas, I am in between boats at the moment.
