Here's an other knit I finished a while ago. I "needed" a yellow sweater, like I "need" a lot of things or at least tell myself I do, and decided to make one myself. I got the pattern from Subversive Femme. It is a lacy cardigan with instruction for both short and long sleeves.
I chose a 100% alpaca yarn because of its wonderfully soft quality. I made my swatch and measured my gauge, but it still turned out a little too lose for me, when I wanted it to fit snug like in the photo. When I talked about this with other knitters they agreed the yarn must have been to blame. It is really very soft and supple.
This one took me quite a long time, almost 2 months to finish, with such small needles and a lot of loops. But I did it, I sure did!
Even though it's a little lose it's still very wearable and I'm overall happy with the result. Isn't that colour just delicious?
I had some wooden buttons left over from one of my previous knitting projects so I decided to use them for this sweater also. I got the buttons from Etsy.
