I am officially obsessed with the Whisper Cardigan by Hannah Fettig from Spring 2009 Interweave Knits. I ordered 3 skeins of Knit Picks Gloss Lace(70% merino, 30% silk), which is 1 skein too many for sure. I believe each skein is $3.99 so this is a very economical sweater in luxury yarn. The color is Bluebird and I absolutely LOVE it! Friday evening I cast on for the first sleeve and I'm already knitting across the back. On this pattern you use several needle sizes and since I'm a loosey goosey knitter, my largest needle is a size 5. I eliminated the bell on the sleeve and also lengthened the sleeve to 3/4 instead of elbow length. The design is quite unique. It is a shame that Interweave Knits did not provide a schematic for this pattern. Thanks to all the Ravelry knitters who have gone before me in this venture. Your notes are very helpful.
Saturday afternoon I walked in our woods. I should say "climbed" in our woods since much of it is hilly. At the bottom of the ravine we have a very winding creek. Several small morels poked their spongy masses through the dead leaves but I did not pick them because I didn't find enough to cook.
Spring is my favorite time of the year. Each day brings new surprises.
