Top Down Cardigan, FO
Pattern: Neck Down Shaped Cardigan #241 by Diane Soucy. Published by Pure and Simple.
Yarn: Berocco Ultra Alpaca, about 5.5 skeins.
Needles: 6s and 4s.
This is an easy pattern of mostly stockinette which was welcome humdrum. It' top down so the lack of seaming is a real plus. The raglan is not the best for my round shoulders, especially viewing from the back, but I love the top down idea. The yarn is very soft and fun to knit with. The color is called tanzanite. The sweater is very warm so I don't know how much wear it will get, but it is so comfy.
One month and 12 days until my retirement date. Getting all the paperwork done is annoying. I'm trying to focus on my mantra, "Grace, Gratitude and Acknowledgment" and soon:
I went to see Ironman last night with my sons. I enjoyed the action, story, acting and best of all the special effects.
