Everyone but me was at Rhinebeck...

...so I finished a sweater!


Celebration Retro 004
Originally uploaded by kniterella
While hunting for the perfect color of Abundance to use for my mom's birthday sweater, Chris and I decided to try a double strand of Celebration.

The Retro Cardigan pattern has just been altered for a variety of sizes and I wanted to test knit a larger size for my mom.

The Celebration was very bulky while wet blocking, but dried to perfection. The bamboo in this yarn should help keep the 'heat' down when worn.

I will get some modeled photos as soon as I can see my mom - her birthday is Nov 23rd!

Hi, I just got some great yarn and this pattern from Chris but was trying to increase the size. I think I've done the math properly but if you have verification I'd appreciate it. Thanks. And the sweater is great by the way. Laurie
