Lush Cardigan



I graduated high school in a class of 607 students. The great thing about graduation is that when the diploma is given and the tassel passed over the cap, it is over. It is time to move on to bigger and better things. I can't say I really enjoyed high school. Perhaps it is because I experienced and ended my first "true love" in high school. Perhaps it was because I felt awkward and self conscious about who I was and where I was going. For me, the most memorable thing about graduation was Yvonne Elliman singing the Janis Ian song, "Society's Child".

The thing I'll remember most about the Lush Cardigan, is that I loved yarn, the way it felt so soft and warm, the color, the way it knit, the smell, and the cool way it fluffed up when "fulled". I suspect I might be allergic to angora, as my allergies took a slight turn for the worse, but then again it could just be the weather.

It still needs closure. I have some possibilites, but for now I think I'll put it away with the high school memories, at least until my sister comes to try it on. I am toying with the idea of some sort of clippy thingy, like the chains people put on their beepers. I have also toyed with some wonderful lampwork buttons made my the the talented Karen at Bella Beads

Oh, B, Lush is breathtakingly stunning!! SO beautiful and I love that green. Your sister will love it, for sure! Can't wait to see what kind of closure you decide on. I thought my class was large with 450 kids, but 607 students- that's a LARGE class! How amazing to have Yvonne Elliman sing for you guys, too. I love her voice.

whoaaaaaaaaaa....great job on Lush! it looks REALLY LUSH!
my class, in comparison, had a "measly" 212 students. of course, the top 12 had over 4.0 gpa's so we'll not go there. i never want to go to my reunions unless i'm ridiculously rich, famous, and accomplished. so far, one out of three ain't bad...

That's just gorgeous!!!

You are far nicer than I to be able to give that to someone. It's a work of art.

(I liked the bento, too. Is it wrong that I want unagi now?)

i haven't done a sweater yet, but your lush is an inspiration! i'm waiting to see what you chose for closure/buttons. i also want to try the magic loop method, so looking forward to seeing how you come along when your lorna's laces come in....
