You know, the act of finishing off a whisper cardigan. I snapped these photos last weekend, before a super busy week of research travel.

I think I’m going to love this sweater. I bound off moments after these photos — just needed to make sure it seemed long enough — and then promptly tucked it into my knitting bag for safekeeping while I was away. On the list for this week? Blocking the bottom edge to reduce the rolling. And then, if it stays cool and gray, wearing it out of the house! (I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: I clearly didn’t give any thought at all to the placement of the mirror in my new home — I need to place one somewhere other than a dark hallway near the bathroom with yellowish light.) Also, I didn’t even need to break into the third skein of this Knitpicks laceweight yarn. Real FO photos to come once it is blocked.

Oh, and that blueberry crumble I posted about last week?

It was delicious. More soon.

  1. please tell me that is a handpainted horse shirt

    the cardigan looks perfect for fall (or this crazy new england rain we’re having right now)

  2. Oooh, looks good! I can’t wait to see the FO photos. Also, I think I need some crumble. Hope the research went swimmingly!

  3. Perfect fit! Looks good! I am working on Irish Coffee, and it makes me think of you…. Have you made that one, is that why it calls you to mind? Seems like the perfect sweater for you. And it is working up nice and easy, too!
