Summer Breeze

This summer has been brutally hot, so to start a sweater seems a little crazy, but it's a very light, lace-weight sweater. It's Hannah Fettig's Breezy Cardigan. I found some Malabrigo Lace at a local yarn shop much cheaper than I ever would have expected, so I snatched it up! I hate that it's single ply, but it's so soft! It hasn't fallen apart and it was easy to wind, so it's still in the running for my new favorite yarn.


Of course I have a dk-weight sweater still on the needles. It only needs sleeves and seams, I think, but it's just too hot. I also just joined a sock knit-along, so my sock knitting streak shall live on. Stay tuned Friday for my newest pair of socks!

  2. Oh wow, that's going to be beautiful. Such a light, magical-looking yarn, like fairies spun it from spider silk or something.

  3. A laceweight cardi sounds ideal for wandering in and out of air conditioning on a summer day!

    Kathleen, that's exactly how it feels too!

    Vivianne, I thought it was time for a fresh, white cardi. I hope it does look classy. :)

  7. It's so beautiful. Not sure I could handle single ply knitting, might be just too thin for my patience.

    May all the forces be on your side.
