Ooooo, Malabrigo...

Well, it's done. The Mr. Greenjeans cardigan is all finished, the ends are woven in, and I'm waiting on the buttons I ordered from the US to arrive sometime so I can be completely done with it. I love it, and it's going to be so wonderful this winter. In the meantime, it's going to just sit there since the 2 minutes I had it on to photograph it, I felt like I might pass out from heat exhaustion. So without further ado, here is the cardigan, in badly shot self-portraits:And a slightly closer view:The next time DF comes to my city, I'll have him take some good shots of the cardigan that don't involve me with the self timer :oP

I also started on a new pair of socks this weekend out of KnitPicks Essential kettle-dyed sock yarn:Hedera from Knitty.com. This time I'll make sure they're big enough for my foot. The first pair I made are really too small, but I blame that on the heat stroke in Thailand since that's when I made them :oP

And last, but not least, I started the next home project which is a vest for my mom. It's really not that bright of a blue, but the camera seems to want to make it very bright today:The last thing I'll leave you with today is a music video that was posted on Ravelry about Malabrigo!



Knit on...

Your sweater turned out perfect and it looks great on you. How many skeins did you end up using?

I ended up using 6 skeins, so still have 2 left to decide what to do with :o)

Sweater looks awesome! I look forward to more pics soon! How are you liking the KP essentials? I have some but haven't knit with it as of yet. Oh, and guess what, I actually posted some pics to my blog about the shawls I finished recently...

Your sweater is beautiful-what pattern is it? I'm looking for something for my DD.Btw, I love the Malagrigo music video- I'd love to see it on MTV-that'd be a hoot!
